Preparing Graphics for Mus2

The SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format defines graphics using mathematical formulae. Vector-based graphics can be displayed at any size and resolution without any visual deterioration.

Raster graphics formats such as Bitmap, JPEG and PNG may appear different from their screen appearance when printed. To display and print notation symbols consistently in every medium, Mus2 supports loading graphics in the SVG format only.

When preparing graphics for use in Mus2, you can make use of music fonts installed in your computer. However, to make sure your score can be displayed correctly on computers that don’t have these fonts, you must convert any text objects to regular shapes in your graphics application (for example, in Adobe Illustrator, use the “Create Outlines” command on text layers). For more information, consult the help documentation that came with your graphics software.
