CHAPTER 4 by Mind Map: CHAPTER 4

1. BEFORE YOU START TO CREATE

1.1. PLAN YOUR APPROACH

1.1.1. MAKE A FLOWCHART AND STORYBOARD

1.2. ORGANIZE THE AVAILABLE TOOLS

1.2.1. AUTHORING SYSTEM PROVIDE THE TOOLS

1.3. CONFIGURE COMPUTER WORKSPACE

1.3.1. HAVE MULTIPLE MONITORS

2. MAKING STILL IMAGES

2.1. BITMAPS (RASTER)

2.1.1. CAN SUPPORT REALISTIC

2.1.2. CALLED PAINTING PROGRAM

2.1.3. ADVANTAGE

2.1.3.1. CAN HAVE DIFFERENT TEXTURES ON DRAWINGS

2.1.3.2. DETAILED AND COMPREHENSIVE

2.1.4. DISAVENTAGE

2.1.4.1. LARGE FILE SIZE

2.1.4.2. NOT EASY TO MAKE MODIFICATION

2.1.4.3. RESIZING A BITMAPPED IMAGE REQUIRES EITHER DUPLICATING PIXELS

2.1.4.4. GRAPHICS BECOME "BLOCKY" WHEN SIZE INCREASE

2.2. VECTOR-DRAWN GRAPHICS

2.2.1. REMAIN THE SAME

2.2.2. CALLED DRAWING PROGRAM

2.2.3. APPLICATION OF VECTOR-DRAWN OBJECT

2.2.4. HOW IT`S WORK

2.2.4.1. A LINE THAT DESCRIBES BY LOCATION OF ITS 2 ENDPOINT

2.2.4.2. MAKES USE OF CARTESIAN

2.2.4.3. CARTESIAN COORDINATES = NUMBERS THAT DESCRIBE A POINT IN 2 OR 3 DIMENSIONAL SPACE

2.2.5. ADVANTAGE

2.2.5.1. USE LESS MEMORY SPACE

2.2.5.2. PLUG-INS DOWNLOAD AND USED FOR ANIMATION FASTER THAN BITMAPS

2.2.5.3. EASY TO EDIT THE DRAWING

2.2.6. DISADVANTAGE

2.2.6.1. OBJECT / DRAWINGS CANNOT HAVE TEXTURE

2.2.6.2. CANNOT BE USED FOR PHOTOREALISTIC IMAGES

3. WHAT IS TEXTURE ?

3.1. PROPERTIES HELD AND SENSATIONS CAUSED BY THE EXTERNAL SURFACE OF OBJECTS
