Format

Format is the shape, size, and general makeup of data, organization, arrangement, or choice of material, a method of organizing information.

Multimedia is a combined use of several media, integration of different media types like text, graphics, video, and sound.

  • Graphics

    Raster and vector graphics - electronically produced images, both still and animation, photographs and infographics, raster and vector computer-generated imagery (CGI), computer graphics, digital graphic art.

    Digital graphical images, created using electronic technology:

    1. Rasterimages, or bitmaps, are digital images created or captured as a set of samples of a given space. Raster images are made of pixels - single points or the smallest single element in a display device. They are stored in files like .jpg, .png, .gif.
      1. Photographs - pictures made using a camera, captured and modified reality presented in raster images, photos and snapshots.
        Digital photography is the science, art and skill of creating images by recording light electronically.
      2. Stills - static images,  electronic productions and infographics.
      3. Animation - kinetic electronic images.
        Animation is illusion of motion and change made by means of the rapid display of a sequence of static images that minimally differ from each other.
    2. Vector images, scalable graphics: vector-based images that are not made up of lines rather than a series of dots, they can be rotated or scaled to a larger size and preserve image quality. They are stored in files like.svg.
  • Multilingual

    In multilingual texts and audio speeches, verbal content is expressed in several, more than one, languages.

    Languagesare methods and systems of communication.

    Multilingualism is the use of more than one language, either by an individual speaker or by a group of speakers. People who speak multiple languages are called polyglots.
    Multilingual speakers have acquired and maintained at least one language during childhood. Children acquiring two languages natively from early years are called simultaneous bilinguals.

      Russian (русский язык - russkiy yazyk, Російська мова, Russisch) is an East Slavic language native to Russia in Eastern Europe, and is used widely throughout Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Caucasus, Central Asia, and the Baltic states, Israel, and Mongolia.

Russian is written using the Cyrillic script.

  • Sound

    Audible content:

    • Noise, ambient sound;
    • Speech, dialogue, conversation;
    • Music, non-verbal voice, singing.

    Sounds - records of vibrations that travel through the air or another medium and can be heard.

  • Video

    Video - recorded motion graphics, typically with sound:

    Videos, movies - are series of still images which, when shown on a screen, creates the illusion of moving images due to the phi phenomenon.

    1. Videography - capturing events, shows, video-portraiture.
    2. Films (long, short, ultrashort):
      1. Featurefilms: full-length motion pictures with a running time over 40 minutes, often over 80 - I plan to make one.
      2. Short film - I made several short documentaries.
      3. Ultra-short films (ultrashorts) are shorter than one minute - under 1 min. duration, 1-60 seconds.

    Movies I make not often include fiction.

    Fiction - fictional or fictionalized narratives or stories, reports of connected imaginary events, presented in sequences of words or images, forwish-fulfillment, or expression, or recounting of past events.
