This file format is used to transmit image data. It contains a set of images that can be linked to form an animation. It is used to store non-compressed bitmap images in 24-bit color created using MTV ray tracer.
This format is used for storing several types of bitmaps, including animations. MNG allows you to store lossy and lossless images with compression. This format provides you with more options than GIF for saving animated files while keeping the original image size.
