Making Image Transparent While Keeping Image Animated?

Recommended Posts

I would like to know how to take an animated image that has a solid background color behind it and make that bg transparent while keeping the animated image animated. In other words, it seems as if when you take an image in PDN and make the background transparent, the image remains in only one frame of the animation upon saving it. I hope that makes sense.

Here's an example....

I'd like someone, if they could please, to show me how to take this image:


And make the background transparent. As you can see, the image is animated so I'd like to keep it animated while taking the white out of the background of the image.

Any help and instruction on this is greatly appreciated. Thank you. :D

You can take the background out, but it's impossible to make it animated with Paint.NET. It is not an animation program. You can edit and save the first frame, but that's about it.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.
