I'm not sure, but there is probably no solution. I think .agif doesn't support transparency

.gif does support transparency. Binary though. I think it would be great to dither transparency though that can be made as a plugin or filter.

@DoubleD .agif does support transparency.  Have you watched this tutorial?  Just uncheck the background layer and Save As:

@DoubleD

Are you saving the file as AGIF or GIF?

Saving as GIF supports transparency as long as all your layers are transparent.

Here's an example I made a few years ago

CPFPatrol.gif.9b954cb38b0cb97ecdd1857126e05509.gif

 

All my frames have transparent backgrounds. I save using AGIF - GIF Animation and Images (*.gif, agif) with a .gif extension

I tried creating a GIF with your transition codes to no avail. Can you reduce your gif to 4 or 5 layers and show us what you are seeing?

No worries @DoubleD I had a feeling it was something like that.  Glad you are back on track :)

Hmmmm  I tried it using your gif and it worked fine with no crash.  How did you rotate the duplicated layer?  I used Layers > Rotate / Zoom.

So did I. It must be something specific to my system. Only the guru's of Paint can decipher the crash report. 

As my example works for the first 3 layers, it is strange it fails when I add the fourth.

Out of curiosity, not that I'll understand - why does the .agif plugin show unchecked layers ?

 

For some reason - that I do not know - this plugin recognizes the layers, whether they are checked or not!   As you will have seen, by using Andrew's agif, one had to delete his layers with the crosses, even though they were unchecked, in order to get the wheel only 😁

You've just had a compliment, was reading this and wifey asked, is Cheryl Baker on Paint.NET 😉

 

I had to Google her (haven't lived in the UK since I was 5) and I must say I am very flattered - thank you @welshblue's wifey 👍

Just checking of I'm using this correctly

I'm Spelling a word out letter by letter
layer 1 has an image and I use //UseAsBackground
 

layer 2 I add the H //400ms

layer 3 is actually a duplicate of layer 2 and I add  an e with //400ms

layer 4 is actually a duplicate of layer 3 and I add  an l with //400ms

layer 5 is actually a duplicate of layer 4 and I add  an l with //400ms

layer 6 is actually a duplicate of layer 5 and I add  an o with //400ms

 

I then go back and add a few images in between to 

if I want to add more, like a image of a dog I must duplicate layer6 so I don't loose my text

 

so layers are

H

He

Hel

hell

hello

 

To add images  I duplicate the hello layer

 

Is this the best way or is there a better way?

Hi @DoubleD :)

 

Layer 1 should be:  //Background.

 

If the layers after the background are all going to be at:  //40ms, you need only to name the first one with that speed. If you add a different speed to something that you later add, again, only name the first layer at the new speed).

 

If you want the Dog to be constant in the Gif, put the dog on the last layer and name it this:  //foreground.

 

I hope that helps.

 

Here is a simple tutorial for you to see the layers line up:

Good to know you only need the speed set once - I was gong nuts adding speed to all the layers

The dog will be moving around too do I'll have to repeat that Hello layer  bunch - I suppose I could duplicate the background and the hello layers, merge the layers  down and then set a new //Background and add the dog there

Do I have an old plug in my txt doc has

 

Commands to define how the layer content will be used:
  UseAsBackground;
    Set this background for all following frames up to the next background command.
	UseAsBackground=false; means that the following frames do not use a background
  UseAsForeground;
    Set this foreground for all preciding frames up to a previous background command.
	UseAsForeground=false; means that the preciding frames do not use a foreground
  UseAsNote;
    Ignore layer. The layer may be used to draw help lines.
  UseAsDefault;
    Set the image in the layer as default image. Used if the viwer does not support
	animations. Has no effect in GIFs, will be handled like UseAsNote.
  UseAsSprite=NAME,ORIGINX,ORIGINY;
