Since I see a lot of people starting to make animated gif's, including me, I guess this can be a thread to show your gif off as well as share any tips to make your animations come out better.

Thanks ya'll maryluvs_smile.gif

Chi, it's really not that hard. It just takes time to do it. I'm sureafter you start, once you get the hang of it, it would be nothing to do them.

Here is a tutorial I swiped from another board. I use ImageReady but you can also use JASC Animation Shop. It all works just as good.

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


Tools:

-JASC Animation Shop
-Snag It 7


FIRST:
-Open up your MEDIA PLAYER (I use WINDOWS Media Player) and turn your VIDEO ACCELERATION to NONE:

** TOOLS>>OPTIONS>>PERFORMANCE TAB>>Go down to VIDEO ACCELERATION and pull the thing to NONE


SECOND:
Then Open up SNAGIT 7 - http://www.techsmith.com and follow THESE directions:

* Click the CAPTURE TAB >> GO to CAPTURE SETTINGS>> THEN:

-MODE >> VIDEO>> then INPUT>> FIXED REGION>> then click the "..." and for WIDTH put in 365 and for HEIGHT put in 250

- Next go to OUTPUT >> FILE >> PREVIEW WINDOW >> then click the "..." and under VIDEO OPTIONS >> check AUTO CONFIGURE... under FILE NAME >> click ASK FOR FILE NAME >> and under OUTPUT just pick what folder u want the AVI file to be in >>> under FILTER >> Click NONE ...Under OPTIONS make sure the microphone IS NOT selected.

Then Click SAVE PROFILE!



Now to the ANIMATION...

-After you set up the two programs, follow these directions:

1. Open up your MEDIA PLAYER (I suggest WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER) and select the movie you want to have as your AVI.

2. Now Open up SnagIT 7 to capture the portion(s) of the video you want in the animation

...now I do this because opening a MPEG is in Animation SHOP is RIDICULOUS when u just want a few frames...so capping the parts u want to an AVI file(which u can also open in animation shop) makes this shit very EASY and less time consuming...especially if u have a slow ass old PC ...

3. After you capped all of your clips, u just go right ahead and open them up in the Animation Shop and just start CUTTING and Pasting the frames as u want them to play in the .GIF.

4. Now after u get through cutting and pasting, go to ANIMATION>> RESIZE>> and resize it to about 150 or whatever you see fit for your own tastes... RESIZE >> click PIXEL SIZE>> and type in the width you want (the height is automatically accounted for).

5. Now u wanna go to EDIT>> SELECT ALL to select all of the frames >>then you wanna go to ANIMATION >> CULL ANIMATION>> and type in 5 ( you do this so the Animation will NOT be so HUGE once u save it.

6. Now go to ANIMATION >> FRAME PROPERTIES >> and you want slow down the animation a little bit so that it is NOT going too fast...I suggest u play with the numbers to see how fast or slow u want it to go.

7. Now to check to see how the Animation will play, go to VIEW>> then ANIMATION.

8. After you are satisfied with the Animation, go to FILE>> SAVE AS and you will save the file type as a .GIF... and MAKE SURE you save it to the HIGHEST QUALITY POSSIBLE...(that's why I CULL the animation so it's not too big, but u still have the best QUALITY possible.)

LOL yeah.

I cannot get AVI's to open up in IR like I can Quicktime files. I didn't know I was going to have to do all of that.

And thanks for the gif maryluvs_thumbup.gif
