Tweening

Is this object discrete or continuous?

Areas of a compressed digital video that change are tracked using motion vectors, represented by the white arrows. Video compression saves space because the video only stores that chunk of color once and tracks how it moves over time, rather than duplicating that chunk of color every frame. Areas of the image that don’t change at all save even more space, because they don’t have any time data. In this example, there are a few frames that have no arrows at all. Those frames are the key frames, which the other frames reference. These motion vectors are a kind of tweening.
