What is this term EYE CATCH? I recently came across this term when a student here told me it was new USA slang. He said it is a computer term.
I have heard of eye candy, and to catch someone’s eye, as in SHE CAUGHT ME EYE…but “eye catch?” is this really a new term or is it CHINGLISH?
When did it begin, who started it, where, when?
I googled and found some references but nothing to xplain it all.
anybody here use this term?
maybe this is it: “In anime TV series, an eyecatch is a brief bit of animation used to lead into (and return from) a commercial break.” REALLY? have you ever heard this term before? is it new or old?
We use eye-catches in our club program to introduce intermissions. We have some good eye-catches, but we’d like to have better ones (and more variety). What better excuse for a contest?
