After 4 to 10 minutes, according tothe period of the day, according tothe season, and to the intensity oflight, the image of immobile objectsfrom which the lens receives the light,becomes perfectly imprinted on theplate, although this image is yet in-visible and only latent [seulementlatente]. Plates should be entirelyrenewed so that new objects do notcome to mix their images with anyalready exposed on the plate. But thisimage, that is yet, so to say in a stateof an unformed chrysalis, what con-sequently comes to reveal it out of itsswaddling clothes? It is the vapour ofmercury,Isid.

The resolution of each chroma component in a macroblock (Crand Cb) is half that of the luminance (luma) component. Eachchroma block is partitioned in the same way as the luma com-ponent, except that the partition sizes have exactly half thehorizontal and vertical resolution (an 8x16 partition in luma cor-responds to a 4x8 partition in chroma; an 8x4 partition in lumacorresponds to 4x2 in chroma; and so on). The horizontal andvertical components of each motion vector (one per partition)are halved when applied to the chroma blocks.Example: Figure 2-3 shows a residual frame (without motioncompensation). The AVC reference encoder selects the bestpartition size for each part of the frame, i.e. the partition sizethat minimizes the coded residual and motion vectors. Themacroblock partitions chosen for each area are shown super-imposed on the residual frame. In areas where there is littlechange between the frames (residual appears grey), a 16x16partition is chosen; in areas of detailed motion (residual ap-pears black or white), smaller partitions are more efficient.Iain E G Richardson, (2003), H.264 / MPEG-4 Part 10 White Paper : Pre-diction of Inter Macroblocks in P-slices Vector Prediction 14.
