Can you use animated .GIF on PDN?


Recommended Posts

Hey i've been playing with PDN and all the plugins, fonts etc. for about 3 months now. But i was wondering, Can you convert video to animated GIF using PDN? If no does anyone know how to do it then input it into a photo in PDN? I have searched around for a while but have found virtually nothing.

Thanks for any help,

Marc :)

Please read the rules. This thread title is far too generic.

In answer to your question - PdN is not an animation program. You can save the frames using the program, but no, you cannot animate it.

Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.

There's a tutorial here [ link ] that explains how to use UnFreez, another free program, to create an animation out of a string of images. You can use Paint.NET (any graphics program would work, but this is the PDN forum after all :wink:) to create the frames for the animation.

I don't think you understand what an incredibly difficult thing you're asking for. Such a program doesn't exist, to my knowledge- but it can be done manually.

actually i have found a program that does it. and it works great. you just put in the file and select the part of the video you want for the .GIF and then you hit create avatar and you got an animated .GIF out of a video file :P . It's called Video Avatar.

Can you use an animated .GIF in PDN? cuase i was thinking of making a sig with one in my sig. but could i do that?

Wow! I'm amazed. I didn't know such a program existed...what is it called?

You can use an animated GIF as your sig or avatar on this forum, but as I said above, Paint.NET itself can not create an animated GIF. If you try to open one with this program, you'll only see the first frame.
