The first step in understanding television display is getting to know raster images, on the computer screen and on the television screen. RASTER IMAGES VERSUS VECTOR IMAGES Raster images are pixel-based, resolution dependent graphics. In contrast to vector images, raster images can't be resized according to a lossless algorithm. Vector images are based on paths and lines interpolated between given points — mathematical formulas that scale. Raster images can be very large in file size, at least in comparison to the more economical size of vector images, which simply contain enough information to determine how an image should be drawn.

PICT utilizes QuickTime codecs to assist in the compression of color and grayscale images, although it uses a generally lossless compression scheme. BMPs are the native uncompressed graphic image format for PCs. In general, they produce large file sizes on par with PICTs. GIF: Since the early days of the Internet, GIFs have been the favored file format for images transmitted in situations with limited bandwidth. Because they use only a select number of colors from a total of 256 possible choices (8-bit), GIFs are easily optimized for small file sizes.

Even if your sound design calls for a low-budget feel, it's better to get a high-quality recording and adjust it later.
