Types of multimedia

There are two types of multimedia that you can integrate directly into pages: images (including animates GIFs) and short video. For longer videos, you can embed videos from youtube. Other multimedia (coordinates, surface data, audio) can be integrated into a 3D scene and presented that way. Some multimedia can be uploaded and then made available as a link (e.g. PDF documents).

Copyright and licensing

Finding multimedia on Proteopedia

Multimedia is stored in the Image: namespace (even if it is not an image). To search, use the search box on the left, click on search, and when you get to the search results, go to the page bottom to uncheck all namespaces except from "Image", and search again. An example search result using the search term "hemoglobin" is here. The full list of uploaded files is at Special:Imagelist.

Uploading multimedia

When you are logged in, you will find a "Upload file" item in the toolbox on the left side panel. You can also reference Video Guide 5. Please take the time to document where the media originated, who authored it, and what the license is. Before uploading coordinates, please add this information directly into the PDB file at the top, using a REMARK line. This way, when the coordinates are used in a 3D scene, viewers can discover where the coordinates originated.

Integrating images and video into a page

For help on formatting the image within the page, see Wiki markup: Images or for even more detail, Wikipedia:Extended image syntax. Embedding videos is described in the Proteopedia:Cookbook in the section called Embedded Youtube and Embedded Vimeo.

Making animations from a 3D scene

Below each 3D scene, any person viewing a page can click on Export Animated Image to make an animated GIF of the scene. You can upload these to Proteopedia and use them in your page. This is especially nice for comparing two structures side by side, one shown in the animated GIF and one in the interactive 3D window.

Mechanisms to integrate multimedia into 3D scenes

You can

  • load coordinates that were previously uploaded
  • load surfaces that were created in jmol and saved in .jvxl format
  • load electrostatic potential
  • load images and use as background

Help on the advanced uses of Jmol for 3D scenes is available at Help:Jmol.
