Multimedia scene description

A scene description is a language describing animations, interactivity, 2D and 3D shapes, audio and video relationship in a presentation. GPAC supports a variety of scene description languages:

  • MPEG-4 BIFS, in its binary form, text form and XML form
  • Web3D VRML97 and X3D
  • SVG 1.2 Tiny profile
  • MPEG-4 ASeR
  • A subset of SWF (Adobe Flash)

MP4Box supports encoding of BIGS and LASeR, as well as various conversions operations. A detailed list of supported operations is provided here.

Rendering is supported in GPAC through the Compositor filter, used for playback of such scenes in Osmo4/MP4Client.

For MPEG-4 Systems scene coding and media packaging, GPAC relies on standard MPEG-4 descriptions but defines its own extensions for media multiplexing, as well as for some BIFS commands. You may alos have a look at the tips and tricks page.
