mng - Multiple-image Network Graphics (MNG) format
MNG (Multiple-image Network Graphics) is the animation extension of the
popular PNG image-format. PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is an
extensible file format for the lossless, portable, well-compressed
storage of raster images.
MNG has advanced animation features which make it very useful as a full
replacement for GIF animations. These features allow animations that
are impossible with GIF or result in much smaller files as GIF.
As MNG builds on the same structure as PNG, it is robust, extensible
and free of patents. It retains the same clever file integrity checks
as in PNG.
MNG also embraces the lossy JPEG image-format in a sub-format named
JNG, which allows for alpha-transparency and color-correction on highly
compressed (photographic) images.
