Friends, In the old days, there were machines like “Moviola and Stimbux” on which negative reels were physically cut and edited. This means the part of the reel not to be shown in the movie that part is cut physically and then the reel join again. These machines were not manufactured in India, they were sourced from abroad. That’s why very few operators of this machine were available in India.

If we talk about putting special effects in the movie then which effect want to show in the movie that effect was to be drawn on negative reel frame by frame. And in every frame, the effect moved forward so that people could see the effect going on in the movie. Even after doing so much, a little editing was possible in films. There are 30 frames in one second, meaning that if a special effect of one second is to be shown in a movie, then that particular effect had to be drawn by hand at 30 frames. Friends, you can understand how fine and hard work it must have been.

After that ‘Shaktiman’ TV serial was telecast on tv, in which a basic level of editing was done. This serial and the effects shown in it became very popular among young children. After that, more and more new computer software came, then animations started happening in India, and today you know. After this, the technology did not look back.
