A metafile is a file containing information that describes or specifies another file.
Some of the function calls are equivalent to vector graphics statements and others identify stored bitmap or literal specifications of which bits to illuminate (raster graphics images).So metafiles can combine both basic graphic information types (raster, vector).
- Computer graphics metafile (CGM)
- Windows metafile (WMF)
- Enhanced metafile (EMF)
- Encapsulated Postscript (page description language) (EPS) - this is an output
format for colour separation used in computer graphics and desktop publishing.
- Portable Document Format (PDF) - platform independent file format for document
distribution (the reader software is free of charge).
