The future of frame-by-frame processing of moving images

The principal differences from the point of view of processing between still and moving images are enumerated. Then the questions surrounding the frame-by-frame processing of moving images and the issues for general use of this practice are discussed. The special characteristics of the moving image lead one to believe that it is possible to generate automatically, or semi-automatically, good quality indexing from texts already created during the process of production. In harmonising the practices of processing of the collections by employing cores of metadata, the discovery, communication and exchange of resources can be assured.
