Performance wise, it is preferable to create a Glyph Group with multiple glyphs, and use the glyphs from the group, rather than creating glyphs from individual image files.

Dynamic Glyph created from GroupID 1 is reserved for the Default Glyphs Group.

Dynamic Glyph created from GroupID 0 (or a null dynamic glyph) refers to rendering without using an actual graphical resource, meaning simple lines, simple points, etc.
