Hello,

In a documentary, they are talking about "plates" to be projected on screens in the cinema studios to help the actors play their parts. I understand "plate" to be a synonym of "shot" or "image", but I can't find this definition in my dictionary. I wonder what it refers to exactly.

Thank you in advance for any help.
