A film-based or video-based motion picture. Major motion pictures are sometimes shot on film and video at the same time. Directors may prefer the effect film delivers, but video enables instant playback. In order to be transmitted or distributed electronically, movies captured on film must be scanned into a digital video format. See digital cinema, camcorder and video format.
