What is AVIF

AVIF is an acronym that stands for "AV1 Image File Format" and represents one way to store both still images and animated images compressed with AV1 in HEIF file format. AVIF offers extended color space capabilities (Wide Color Gamut, WCG) and features such as graininess, color undersampling, and HDR (High Dynamic Range). HDR is a technology that enables uniform brightness and solid colors and contrasts in images. HDR can be easily achieved with AVIF since it can go beyond the usual 8-bit color depth of standard dynamic range (SDR) images (up to 12-bit and higher color depths are possible). The metadata can be used to share not only HDR information but also information concerning the color gamut. The ability to create animation sequences similar to GIF animations (Animated GIFs) is also available (support for multi-layer images for image elements and sequences).
