We make a variety of content available to you to use with this assignment.
This document describes the content we have assembled and gives you some
information about how to make your own content if you wish to do so.
We provide you with a variety of images and animations for this assignment.
Images are all stored in TIFF format; to view the images, use the xv
or display program. The animations are in QuickTime format and
can be viewed on SGIs with movieplayer.
See the directory /usr/class/cs248/assignments/assignment2/content

Making your own
If you wish, you can try making your own images or movies and using them
in the video editor. Images must be in TIFF format; you can covert other
formats to TIFF using xv. Just load the images with xv,
press the right mouse button over the image (which will bring up a new
window), and choose save in the controls window. Select TIFF format and
save the image.
Converting animations is more difficult; read the man pages for
dmconvert and moviemaker.
If you have a sequence on a videotape you would like to use, send
mail to cs248@graphics and tell us what you have in mind. If not
too many people have videos, we may be able to convert them with video
equipment in the graphics lab.
