Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology Multimedia improves and enhances the user’s experience anywhere that interaction with a computer is required. Whether in a presentation or report, the major benefits of using multimedia are that statistically the user is likely to: This presentation provides an overview of multimedia, including: Be more interested Creating sound Text content Linking frames Testing completed presentations Be attentive for longer Remember what was seen for longer Introduction Next >
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology 1 Presentations that contain multimedia are more likely to be remembered for longer than presentations that do not contain multimedia. Is this true or false? Question Answer True or False.
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology When creating multimedia, the level of skill and effort applied in the design stage is what determines the end product’s quality. The design stage is where you start to draw together your skills in: During the design stage, keep in mind that your multimedia production should, on completion, be: Video Music Information management Graphics Easy to navigate and read Error free and factually correct Design Next >
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology 2 A) It should be error free B) It should be facually correct C) It should contain at least one video D) It should be easy to navigate Which of the following should NOT be expected of a multimedia presentation? Question
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology Of the elements in any multimedia presentation, the text content is one of the most important. Text is far less difficult for the user to follow than any combination of sound and images and can be used for: Words quickly and accurately provide the user with information in as little or as much detail as necessary. Selecting an appropriate font and text content for a multimedia presentation requires planning, skill in writing, and a flair for design. Titles Menus Content Navigation Text Next >
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology When choosing the font and content for a presentation, there are various important factors to bear in mind: Legibility - make sure the font is easy to read or there is no point using it Effect - using many different fonts together can be confusing or irritating Visual - do not cram text onto the screen, overcrowding detracts from your message Color - use various colors to enhance the work, while exercising restraint It is important that the font size, color, and style, along with the text content, matches the intended style of the presentation. Text Next >
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology 3 It is essential that the font for content and titles is the same. Is this true or false? Question Answer True or False.
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology 4 A) The font should never use just one color B) The font should always use a range of sizes C) The font should be legible D) The font should always use underlining to emphasize words Which of the following statements about the font to be used in a multimedia presentation is correct? Question
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology JPEG GIF BMP There are many software packages available for manipulating graphics. Graphics are created in various image file types, the most commonly used being: As a general rule, it is best to use: GIF file format for graphic images - icons, logos and buttons JPEG for photographic images Graphics Next >
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology 5 The best file format for photographic images is usually JPEG. Is this true or false? Question Answer True or False.
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology Audio or sound files can make a huge difference to a multimedia presentation by: Enhancing its professionalism Offering an alternative information delivery method Increasing its entertainment value There are various audio file types, the most common being: AVI WAV MP3 Care should be taken with all content as file sizes can be large and to hear them requires specialized software. Audio Next >
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology 6 A) Sound files tend to be large B) Sound files can increase the entertainment value of the presentation C) Sound files make a presentation appear more professional D) Sound files can not include music Which of the following could be a problem when incorporating sound into presentations? Question
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology When adding a movie to a presentations, generally you will use either: Flashing on and off Movement around the screen Shrinking and growing Video clips Animations Animation includes any movement including: Video, whether from a video camera or web cam, is inserted in clips, which are processed using specialized software. There are various file types used for movies, and maintaining small file size is also important. Movies Next >
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology When creating presentation movies, software packages vary, but generally most follow the traditional animation building concepts of: Layers - these build the movie as a series of graphics, one on top of the other, in transparent layers Keyframes - are the parts of an animation where something important happens, for example, a character waving or winking Tweening - is where the software creates frames automatically between the keyframes, saving time There are many other steps in creating animation, depending not only on the format, but also the software and hardware available. Creating Movies Next >
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology 7 A) Tweening B) Layering C) Clipping D) Keyframes Which of the following is NOT a concept concerned with creating animations? Question
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology A movie frame is one picture in a series of pictures that when played together give the impression of motion or animation. Frame-by-frame animating is done by creating a new image for each frame of a finished animation. Each picture looks slightly different from the last, and when put into a movie format, they combine to give an illusion of movement. Frame rate is the number of pictures needed per second to make this movement smooth and realistic. Most software has a frame rate of 8 to 12, whereas cinematic movies use 24. Movie Frames Next >
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology 8 What is the frame rate, in frames per second, for movie projection? Question Enter your answer and press Send.
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology Most multimedia projects can best be described as a body of information through which the user navigates. Text links - words linking to topics or different screens The most common way they do this is through intuitive, universally recognized actions, collectively known as click to act functionality, which includes: Buttons - dedicated links to topics or screens Graphical links - images linking to topics or screens Linking Screens (slides) of a Presentation Next >
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology There are many effects that can be applied to your multimedia presentation, depending on the software used to build it. Text and graphic effects - these can slide in and out of view, fade, shrink and grow, perhaps even explode Transition effects - the way screen pages change The special effects available depend on the software used to create a multimedia presentation and the system on which it is to be viewed. Effects determine how items appear on the screen. As well as animations and movies, these effects can include: Special Effects Next >
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology The golden rule when testing any project, multimedia or otherwise, is as follows… test it, then test it, then test it again!! Testing should cover the following: Functionality - make sure the project does what it is supposed to Usability - check that the navigation works and is easy to use Accuracy - verify that the content is factually and legally correct Testing Next >
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology 9 A) Functionality B) Usability C) Accuracy D) Costing Which feature is NOT covered in a testing schedule? Question
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology All equipment (software and hardware) is working properly Everything plays properly and in the correct order Giving a trial demonstration of your presentation to a friend or colleague is very important in making sure that: Content will be understood fully by the audience Estimated running time is accurate Demonstrating Multimedia Next >
Multimedia Production 2 Information Technology When developed properly, presentations can be exciting, interesting and informative multimedia displays. Movies Good presentations, enlivened by animation and sound, are recognized to enhance the experience of the audience.
