Make an Animated .GIF with Paint.NET

Recommended Posts

@topezia: you might have wanted to make each images last long on that GIF.

Yep! I've already set a frame delay of 35 and thought if I slowered it more it will slow down the turkey's wink, too :wink:

and, by the way:

Happy Thanksgiving! :wink:

I was trying to make a long animation and just checked how first 2 frames worked, and... gasp! Why there is that change in texture? May be cause I used line/curves tool with "fill with" at various setttings instead of solid color? :cry:

The GIF format only supports 256 colors(?). The change you see from frame to frame is the format compression process attempting to reduce the number of colors across the entire image (all frames).

Thank you,

I see, so there is no solution for that! (sigh!)

Ciao,

My first animated X-mas card! It costed me blood swear :wink: and tears, so please be merciful :) but comments and advices are most welcome, unfortunately the original file size (forgot to resize!) was huge (10,2 mb) and I had to use a program to resize it so I was not able to stop the animation with the final text (unloop?) as it was in the original (shame on me!)

I made this for a friend. (Put the image of his awful pooch in it :lol:) What I found difficult was the wings animation, should I have to duplicate always the original layer with the wings (setted in this case for the dog's wings at zoom 1 with rotate layer) and then reset all and add the following zoom or proceed with the modified layers (i.e. layer 1 zoom 1 layer 2 zoom 0.95 layer 3 zoom 1.11..and add new zoom on that? (It sounds confused I know, hope you can understand what I am trying to say) and also anyone has any suggestion for a more realistic breath? Thanks a lot for your help!

Has anyone used animated gifs to do a quick and easy slide show? My friend wants a slideshow of her CD covers -- easy enough to switch photos, but what about a slow crossfade?

Just point me at the URL if this has been discussed before -- I just found Paint.NET and think the program, and especially the user community, is great!

Ain't this a little tim and space on HD consuming? If you want something gooad astick figure just doin something, it will take many gifs right?

Technically, yes; but GIFs are very small. And, once you've got the animation put together, you can delete all of the frames (be careful, though; it means you'll never be able to edit the animation again!)

It would take a LONG time and a LOT of frames. But it could be done. :-) There are much better ways to do it, though. If it's online, I'd use a JavaScript. If it's not, I'd use MS Powerpoint. Much quicker, much less work. :-) And a lot easier on the hard drive.

Nice Tut , Hard Tut

=======================

I like it that you posted an program like Unfreez :)

its not really an tut but its an introducing to the world of animation.

i like it but dont use it often since for an animation of 3 seconds you need 70 frames .

im glad this is Sticky'd.

I Hope you will make lots of tuts!

Thanks, David, I thought that may be the case! My concern is that some browsers turn off javascript. . . by the way, do you know of a free, compact slideshow javascript?
