Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Learning about the compatible image types, part of AutoCAD Raster Design Essential Training.
- [Voiceover] Let's just jump in, shall we?…To get started, I'd like to address…some items that may cause frustration…as you're trying to make edits to raster images…you have inserted into an AutoCAD drawing.…But first, let's address the difference…between raster and vector,…because there is a huge difference.…So huge that we need an AutoCAD add-on…called Raster Design to even deal with it.…Raster images are a collection of pixels…that may or may not be a different color…to display an image.…When you zoom in on a raster image it gets blurry.…Why?…Well, because those pixels don't change…regardless of zoom factor.…
Vector images are an actual mathematical formula…that dictates how the image is displayed.…Vector images will not get pixelated when zoomed in…because it recalculates the display.…Seems like vector is better, right?…Well, that depends on what you are doing.…A raster image depends on dots per inch, DPI.…300 dpi and up is considered high resolution.…When zoomed in to the intended ratio,…raster images are a true picture of the subject.…
