GIF Animation

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a way to include a short animated GIF in my presentations, such as a "cartoon-like" bird flying across the screen.

Is there a way to do that in P2E 5.6?

Thanks for any help!

Peter :)

Hello Peter,

Unfortunately you can not include animated gif in PTE.

But please, post your gif and I will try to suggest or if you wish make myself an animation with it during the week-end.

Thanks for your generous offer "THEDOM".

Fortunately, I know how to make short animations using multi-frame pictures, but they are so time consuming that I wanted to have a short-cut with GIFs.

I'm just curious, how come it's so easy to have animated GIFs in messages here ( :blink::rolleyes::unsure: ) and not in P2E?

The copyright issue with GIF images has been going on mostly during the last century! :lol:

But, it seems to be over since 15 years!

"... As of June 20, 2004, the GIF/LZW-related patents mentioned in this text have expired."

Go here, if you want to read the whole text: http://www.cloanto.com/users/mcb/19950127giflzw.html

Nowadays, programmers have made leaps and bounds in other tools, such as PNG (which didn't exist during the "Compuserve era of GIFs" imaging.

So, my question is still valid: Is there a way to include GIF images in P2E?

Yes, but not animated GIF images.
