So I've been studying animation, and perhaps I missed something as I was going through this one book...but maybe someone here can clarify my question. Here's the passage in question:Animation question: exposures on "eights" or "twelves"
I just want to make sure I'm understanding this correctly. The only reason why I'm particularly interested is because I also have noticed that I like the Tom and Jerry timing more so than other similar cartoons.
So...when he says people are walking on "twelve exposures" or "eights", as far as actual time units go [seconds], does that mean (for the 8 example):
cartoons are 24 fps
so 8/24 = 0.3 seconds
is he saying each step takes 0.3 seconds? Or every two steps (one cycle) takes 0.3 seconds? I don't quite get it. It seems like a brisk pace either way.
