present .gif and .png are the only supported formats. If you look at
gif2eps and png2eps in the system/scripts directory you will see that
we use the Ntepbm utilities (see http://netpbm.sourceforge.net/doc/) giftopnm, pngtppnm, etc. to convert to eps format for hard copy output. |
It would be very easy to support .jpegs as there is a jpegtopnm program. Also there is a anytopnm which we should probably use. The documentation says "anytopnm converts the input image, which may be in any of dozens of graphics formats" but never says what these formats are.
For movie formats you could at present enter a link to an html page and from there have students access the movie.
