Abstract:     An exposure sheet that is used in preparing animated motion pictures is provided with a recording medium, such as a strip of magnetic tape, extending along the length thereof. The exposure sheet is subdivided into horizontal sections that coincide in position with frames on a master sound track. Sprocket holes are provided in the exposure sheet to insure synchronization with the master sound track, when the signals are transferred from the master sound track to the recording medium on the exposure sheet. A stylus, responsive to the audio signals on the master sound track, may be used to apply a visual indication or display of the audio signal on the master sound track on to the exposure sheet. The present invention contemplates that the exposure sheet will be either in continous, reel form or in strips that are cut to different lengths and which coincide with the different lengths of the various scenes. Alternatively, the exposure sheets may be cut in equal lengths that are secured together and are adapted to be used in table form. In use, a transducer, such as a pick-up head, may be moved over the magnetic tape on the exposure sheet in order to evaluate individual frames on the master sound track. At the same time various overlays, each representing a portion of the total animation, may be manually flipped in order to provide an indication of the synchronization.

First Claim:
Show all 15 claims
We claim:     1. Apparatus for making a visual/audiographic script for animated motion pictures or the like from a prerecorded master sound track, said apparatus comprising;
  • a. an elongated exposure sheet having a plurality of areas for recording indicia thereon, said areas being defined by a plurality of lines running transverse the length of said exposure sheet, said areas having a predetermined, spatial relationship to the frames of the film on which the animated motion picture will be photographed;
  • b. a length of magnetic recording medium secured to said exposure sheet, said recording medium extending substantially parallel to the length thereof and in juxtaposition to said areas, said recording medium having the sound for the animated motion picture rerecorded there from the master sound track;
  • c. means for transferring a graphic illustration of the audio signals from the master sound track to said exposure sheet along side of and substantially parallel to said recording medium said graphic illustration being in synchronism with the dialogue on said recording medium; and
  • d. a line of sprocket holes formed in said exposure sheet adjacent and parallel to each longitudinal edge thereof for linearly advancing said exposure sheet.
