    I hope this is the correct forum for this.
    Several years ago my youngest son asked me this question, " Dad, how do you make a cloud standstill?" Know what I told him? :mrgreen:

    Technically you didn't make the cloud stand still at all but I'm going to shut up and go away and not bother anyone........

    Yeah, but the question "Dad, how do you create a pictorial illusion that an object with motion; say a cloud, is not moving, without actually stopping it's progress or interfering with it in any way?" doesn't quite have the same ring to it.
