What is 2D and 3D? - Graphics
What is 2D and 3D?
- 2D is used to create flat digital images.
- X and Y horizontal and vertical axis are used in 2D.
- 2D graphics are used for printing and drawing applications.
- 2D graphics are vector based graphics.
- 3D graphics represents 3 dimensional representations of geometric data, such as length, breadth and depth.
- 3D graphics falls into 3 categories:
1. 3D modeling – the process of forming computer model of an object.
2. Layout and Animation – movement and placing and object in a scene are known as layout and animation.
3. 3D rendering – computer calculations that are based on light placement, surface types generate an image.
7. What is the difference between vector and raster graphics?
- Raster graphics are composed of pixels.
- Raster graphic is an array of multicolor pixels those form an image.
- Raster graphic blocks images because each pixel increases the size of the image.
- Vector graphics are generated with paths.
- Every path comprises of lines that may be straight or curved.
- Vector graphics can be scaled without losing the image quality.
