1’s work on 2 is the earliest example of an arrangement used to achieve a special effect 3.
Identify 1,2 and 3.

(1’s work on 2 has been an inspiration for other inventions which we enjoy big time these days :) )

Put your hands together for Tathagata Chatterjee and bobo. They get the exact answer we were looking for.

sidsen , jayanth , udupendra , bs , teju , madhur , vaibhav008 , Shashank and nishas thambi were in the vicinity of the answer, so they get their points.


The answer I was looking for was “Bullet Time“.

2 is called “Horse in Motion”, a series of images which were taken in succession using multiple cameras actuated when the horse pulled taut strings on the track. It was taken by taken by Eadweard Muybridge. Horse in motion and images like this were antecedents to the Bullet time effect, which is now uber popular in games and movies.

Thomas Edison’s invention of moving pictures is said to have been inspired by Eadweard Muybridge’s work.
