Computer graphics can be classified into distinct categories: raster graphics and vector graphics, with further 2D and
3d variants. Many graphics programs focus exclusively on either vector or raster graphics, but there are a few that combine
them in interesting ways. It is simple to convert from vector graphics to raster graphics, but going the other way is harder.
Some software attempts to do this.
In addition to static graphics, there are animation and video editing software. Different types of software are often
designed to edit different types of graphics such as video, photos, and drawings. The exact sources of graphics may vary for
different tasks, but most can read and write files.
Most graphics programs have the ability to import and export one or more graphics file formats, including those formats
written for a particular computer graphics program. Examples of such programs include GIMP, Adobe Photoshop, CorelDRAW, Pizap,
Microsoft Publisher, Picasa, etc.
The use of a swatch is a palette of active colours that are selected and rearranged by the preference of the user. A
swatch may be used in a program or be part of the universal palette on an operating system. It is used to change the colour of
a text or image and in video editing. Vector graphics animation can be described as a series of mathematical transformations
that are applied in sequence to one or more shapes in a scene. Raster graphics animation works in a similar fashion to
film-based animation, where a series of still images produces the illusion of continuous movement.
This software enables the user to create illustration , designs ,logos ,3-dimensions images,animation and pictures.
Corel draw is a graphics software
3D computer graphics or three-dimensional computer graphics, in contrast to 2D computer graphics) are graphics that use
a three-dimensional representation of geometric data (often Cartesian) that is stored in the computer for the purposes of
performing calculations and rendering 2D images. Such images may be stored for viewing later or displayed in real-time.
3D computer graphics rely on many of the same algorithms as 2D computer vector graphics in the wire-frame model and 2D
computer raster graphics in the final rendered display. In computer graphics software, the distinction between 2D and 3D is
occasionally blurred; 2D applications may use 3D techniques to achieve effects such as lighting, and 3D may use 2D rendering
3D computer graphics are often referred to as 3D models. Apart from the rendered graphic, the model is contained within
the graphical data file. However, there are differences: a 3D model is the mathematical representation of any three-dimensional
object. A model is not technically a graphic until it is displayed. A model can be displayed visually as a two-dimensional
image through a process called 3D rendering or used in non-graphical computer simulations and calculations. With 3D printing,
3D models are similarly rendered into a 3D physical representation of the model, with limitations to how accurate the rendering
can match the virtual model.
Blender is a professional free and open-source 3D computer graphics software product used for creating animated
films, visual effects, art, 3D printed models, interactive 3D applications and video games.
Blender's features include 3D modeling, UV unwrapping, texturing, raster graphics editing, rigging and skinning, fluid
and smoke simulation, particle simulation, soft body simulation, sculpting, animating, match moving, camera tracking,
rendering, video editing and compositing.
Alongside the modeling features it also has an integrated game engine.
GIMP (an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a free and open-source raster graphics editor used for
image retouching and editing, free-form drawing, resizing, cropping, photo-montages, converting between different image
formats, and more specialized tasks.
GIMP began in 1995 as the school project of two university students; now GIMP is a full-fledged application, available
on all distributions of Linux, OS X and Microsoft Windows.
It is released under GPLv3+ licenses and is freely distributed to (and by) anybody, who can look at its contents and its
source code and can add features or fix problems.
GIMP is expandable and extensible; it is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions in order to improve its
This is implemented through the use of a scripting interface.
GoPro, Inc. (marketed as GoPro and sometimes stylised as GoPRO) is an American technology company founded in 2002 by
Nick Woodman. It manufactures eponymous action cameras and develops its own mobile apps and video-editing software.
Founded as Woodman Labs, Inc, the company eventually focused on the connected sports genre, developing its line of action
cameras and, later, video editing software. It also developed a quadcopter drone, Karma, released in October 2016.
In October 2016, before the release of "Karma" quadcopter drone, GoPro released the GoPro "HERO 5" and "HERO 5 Session"
Inkscape is a free and open-source vector graphics editor; it can be used to create or edit vector graphics such as
illustrations, diagrams, line arts, charts, logos and complex paintings. Inkscape's primary vector graphics format is Scalable
Vector Graphics (SVG), however many other formats can be imported and exported.
Inkscape can render primitive vector shapes (e.g. rectangles, ellipses, polygons, arcs, spirals, stars and 3D boxes) and
text. These objects may be filled with solid colors, patterns, radial or linear color gradients and their borders may be
stroked, both with adjustable transparency. Embedding and optional tracing of raster graphics is also supported, enabling the
editor to create vector graphics from photos and other raster sources. Created shapes can be further manipulated with
transformations, such as moving, rotating, scaling and skewing.
Lightworks is a professional non-linear editing system (NLE) for editing and mastering digital video in various
formats, including 2K and 4K resolutions, and television in PAL, NTSC, and high-definition formats. Lightworks was an early
developer of computer-based non-linear editing systems, and has been in development since 1989.
The program is currently available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS. The development of an open source version, as well as
ports to Linux and Mac OS X were announced in May 2010. No source code has yet been released, but the project roadmap has
indicated that source code release will happen eventually.
The source code release is currently overdue: The Lightworks website FAQ states "Once the Linux and Mac versions are
released the source code of Lightworks will become available. We cannot give a date when this will happen, but announcements
and updates will be regularly posted on the Lightworks Forum."
Snagit is a screenshot program that captures video display and audio output. Originally for the Microsoft Windows
operating systems, recent versions have also been available for macOS, but with fewer features. It is created and distributed
by TechSmith, and was first launched in 1990. Snagit is available in English, German, Korean, and Japanese versions.
Snagit replaces the native print screen function with additional features. Newer versions allow batch capture of
embedded items such as links, pictures, and multimedia. The user can set parameters and keyboard shortcuts to capture
particular types of data, which are stored in a folder called "Catalog" by default. The software can also follow links in web
pages, capturing the specified data from the linked pages.
Accessories extend its features. For example, Flickr Output enables the user to upload screen captures to a Flickr
VideoPad Video Editor (or simply VideoPad) is a video editing application developed by NCH Software for the home and
professional market. The software is complemented by the VirtualDub plug-ins that work with the software. VideoPad
is part of a suite that integrates with other software created by NCH Software. This other software includes WavePad, a
sound-editing program; MixPad, a sound-mixing program; and PhotoPad, an image editor.
VideoPad is presumably trialware. The free edition is feature-limited, while the non-free version has more advanced
features. VideoPad Master Edition supports plugins while the free version does not. The non-free edition does not limit
simultaneous video tracks, but the free one allows at most two concurrent tracks and limits export file type options after the
trial period expires. The premium version allows users to generate Blu-ray Discs.
VideoPad supports frequently used file formats including Audio Video Interleave (AVI), Windows Media Video (WMV),
3GP, and DivX. It supports direct video uploads to YouTube, Flickr, and Facebook.
VideoPad uses two screens: the first for a preliminary review of chosen video and audio snippets and the second to
review the entire track. The application supports several video effects, including those involving light, color, transitions,
