These materials include virtually every digital item used in the 100+ flute workshops led by Clint and Vera over the last 15 years. A complete catalog is provided with the FDR package.

Formats

Various formats are used, depending on the type of content.

Documents

Text material is provided in Adobe PDF (Portable Document Format). These can be displayed and printed on a wide variety of devices and computer systems.

Fonts

Digital fonts - in particular the Finger Diagram Fonts used for scoring music with finger diagrams - are provided in TTF (TrueType) format.

Images

Digital images are provided in JPG and PNG format.

Audio

Digital audio tracks are provided in high-quality (low-compression) MP3 format. The bit rate is typically over 190Kbps, which provides very high quality sound and a reasonable file size.

Video

We provide digital video in MP4 and WMV formats. Customized versions of the FluteCast videos (suitable for use in workshops) are provided in both WMV format and several versions of MP4 format with different screen resolutions - letting you use the best version appropriate to your display settings.

Use of the FDR

There is a wide range of licensing and copyright restrictions on the digital items in the FDR - from Public Domain to Restricted Use. You may use all the content for your own personal use, and you may show it in non-public educational settings such as flute circles and music workshops, consistent with the doctrines of Fair Use or Fair Dealing that apply. However, you may not distribute the digital content in the FDR package to any other person, by any means.
