Animated Image 2.4 - AGIF & APNG

461 posts in this topic

There are countless issues with the animated gif filetype plugin..

Original made many years ago: affbutton.gif

 

Tried to make it square: affbutton_square_01.gif

 

Updated:

Issues

  • Lack of transparency support
  • Quality severely damaged by this plugin
  • Importing creates a layer for each frame, but moving the image in the layer ( ie to center in resized canvas ) creates a duplicate of the frame so you have to go back and remove others ( I also tried without removing in case it was a mask, but transparency still escaped the saved file even if I tried apng or agif instead of gif )
  • Lack of options during save phase ( It should have gif options, ie transparency PLUS current 2 options )

 

I tried another which doesn't downgrade quality but has the same issue with transparency... Am trying out masking in paint.net with another addon, hopefully it won't show up as an extra frame or so......

 

Any solutions? Am going to try the alternative suggested by midora shortly.

Either something is wrong with my Windows installation, or something is wrong with the current version of Paint.NET... but the plugin doesn't seem to work anymore.

Don't keep us waiting... :smile:... in what way does it not work? Is there an error or something?

ICON1.APNG

ICON2.APNG

EDIT: Assuming it's a problem with the newest version of Paint.NET, and the plugin needs to be updated... then while you're at it, I suppose having an actual "Desired Framerate" box (and an animated preview) wouldn't hurt either.

And the problem happened again, this time when I tried to open a .PSD

It seems that the problem only occurs whenever I try to open a Plug-In filetype, but I can still save in those filetypes just fine.

System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type 'PaintDotNet.Threading.PrivateThreadPool' from assembly 'PaintDotNet.Core, Version=4.12.6099.39434, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'.

   at PaintDotNet.Data.PhotoshopFileType.PsdLoad.Load(Stream input)

   at PaintDotNet.FileType.Load(Stream input) in D:\src\pdn\src\Data\FileType.cs:line 496

   at PaintDotNet.Functional.Func.Eval[T1,TRet](Func`2 f, T1 arg1) in D:\src\pdn\src\Base\Functional\Func.cs:line 158

As it stands, I still have no idea if it's just a problem on my end (messed up installations), or if it's a problem with the newest version of Paint.NET.

This plugin is good, but I it has missed two important things.  First one - AGIF not supporting transparency. And second - during saving I cannot select 24 bit or 8bit GIF image I want to save. It defaults to 8bit, even if the source is 24bit. 
See example source file in attachment.

Oh dear .... I really made a dog's dinner of that post :mrred:.  I edited the duplicated one and forgot to check the other.  Many thanks to those who look after mesmileys-verwirrte-906519.gif
