According to this sentence:

A projector moves the film forward at 24 frames per second so that our eyes register moving images and {not still ones}.

I am not sure whether it "doesn't register non-moving images" or "register non-moving images". And still usage doesn't grasp it.

And (conjuction) have been made reduction, Can you please make a full sentence - without reduction ?

    What's the exact question, here? The usage of still? Aug 21, 2019 at 21:25
  • What bearing does the title of this question have on the body of the question? (And, to echo another comment, what is the actual question?) Aug 22, 2019 at 0:51

I think the only plausible way to understand this sentence is:

A projector moves the film forward at 24 frames per second so that our eyes register moving images and don't register still ones.

That said this is technically false since as I see it, your eyes actually "register" still images (shown at the speed of 24 fps) but your brain puts them together.

A projector moves the film forward at 24 frames per second so that our eyes register moving images and not still ones.

The phrase is describing the illusion of film. Even though a person might know that a film is a sequence of frames (still images) played in succession, the speed of that playback (24 frames per second) is enough to fool our eyes/brains into believing that the subject of the film is moving.
