Can someone explain how the first down and scrimage lines are generated on screen in televised NFL games? Obviously, it's done by computer, but I can't figure out how the angle and aspect is able to change and keep up with the constantly changing camera angles. Also, the lines are seemingly underneath the players, as if they were actually drawn on the ground.
