What is a GRASP file?

A GRASP file is an animation created by GRASP (Graphical System for Presentation), an MS-DOS program used in the 1980s and 90s to create and play back animations. It stores an animation in the GRASP format that may include low-resolution images, shapes, and text.

More Information

Doug Wolfgram developed GRASP in the early 1980s. Then, John Bridges assumed primary software development in the early 1990s and succeeded it in 2002 with AfterGRASP.

When GRASP was prominent in the 1980s and 90s, users often inserted GRASP animations into presentations, games, and tutorials. However, GRASP is now an obscure format no longer developed.
