Definition: intraframe coding

In video recording, compressing each video frame as a single entity. With intraframe coding, each frame is independent of the previous one, and although intraframe (in-tra) takes up more storage space than interframe (in-ter) coding, it allows for the most flexibility when editing the original material. Contrast with interframe coding.

Intra vs. Inter
Intraframe coding takes up more space than interframe, but subsequent editing is much easier and delivers better results.
