German term or phrase:Trickzeichnung
"Bei diesem, mit einer sehr gut gearbeiteten Dreiviertelkrone aus Keramik versorgten Zahn, ist der Zahnfleischschwund schon sehr weit fortgeschritten und es hat sich eine tiefe Tasche gebildet. Die ***Trickzeichnung*** zeigt, wie weit das Instrument etwa eindringen kann. Und wie hoch das Zahnfleisch vorher verlaufen ist."
From a text for a dental video. I'm stumped on "Trickzeichnung". "Trick drawing" doesn't make much sense to me. I'm wondering whether they may mean something like animation? Perhaps it's a little animated sequence of some sort.
Does anyone with knowledge of the film and television industry have a reasonably definite idea of what a Trickzeichnung might be? TIA for your help.
Excellent! Animated sequence it is then. Love it when the solution is so clearcut! Thanks Ian and all the peer graders. But thanks also to sutcliffe for an interesting comment. Appreciate everyone's help. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
You're right, it's not an engineering question, but I thought it was kind of a "tech" question. It's not really a medical question in this instance. I suppose "Other" would be the alternative category to put this question under.
I wouldn't have necessarily thought this was an "Easy" question, either.

Explanation: I would definitely go for "animated sequence" here - I really can't imagine what else it would be.
