    We can’t discuss Prince of Persia without talking about the awesome smooth life-like animations.

    I’m sure you’re all aware, as this is a pretty well-known fact nowadays, but for those who are new to this: the trick is a thing called rotoscoping.

    Rotoscoping is a technique which involves filming the desired action by actual human actors and then frame by frame tracing the images, resulting in an animation which mimics the movements of the original filmed footage.

    Some of the original videos shot for Prince of Persia are on YouTube and if you haven’t seen these before, they’re well worth checking out:

    That video is an amazing archive, so glad it’s been kept and shared. Thanks for linking it!
