In the field of computer graphics, graphics software is a programme or set of programmes that allows a user to alter images or models graphically on a computer.
Computer graphics are divided into two categories: raster and vector graphics, with further 2D and 3D variations. Many graphics programmes specialise in either vector or raster graphics, but a select few can handle both. Converting from vector to raster graphics is simple, but the reverse is more difficult. This is something that some software tries to do.
Animation and video editing software are available in addition to static graphics. Various types of software are frequently intended to edit various sorts of visuals, such as video, pictures, and vector-based drawings. For different jobs, the actual sources of graphics may vary, although most can read and write files.
Most graphics programmes can import and export a variety of graphics file types, including ones created specifically for a computer graphics software.
A swatch is a palette of active colours that can be picked and rearranged according to the user’s preferences. A swatch can be used in a programme or included in an operating system’s universal palette. It’s used in video editing and to change the colour of text or images. A series of mathematical transformations are applied in sequence to one or more shapes in a scene to create vector graphics animation. Raster graphics animation is comparable to film-based animation in that it creates the sense of continuous movement by using a series of static pictures.
Illustrations, designs, logos, 3-dimensional images, animation, and photos may all be created with this software.
