This spell creates a visual representation of a piece of text or static graphic. The image performs any acts indicated by the text or extrapolated from the graphic. The animated image is a flat, two-dimensional, full-color animated image and is seen the same way by all parties viewing it. Images created from text are reasonable representations but not necessarily completely accurate.

For instance, a historical biography of King Ferfensia that includes a detailed description or a portrait of the king produces an image corresponding to the text or illustration. A different text that merely recounts an exploit of King Ferfensia but lacks a description of the king merely produces an image ofa regal-looking male with the details supplied by the caster. Neither image is guaranteed to resemble what the king looks like in reality.

The spell can be cast upon a book, scroll, tapestry, or other textual or visual representation. If cast upon a three-dimensional object such as a statue, the image produced is still just a flat, two-dimensional one floating above or in front of the item.

Focus: A small graphic motion flip-book.
