Animated GIF files

P: n/a
Is it possible using Image or Bitmap to build and save an animated GIF file?
I am not have a problem saving the GIF file just getting the frames added to
it.

I did find ImageAnimator but it only seems to deal with showing the GIF and
not saving it.

Thanks,
John

I would personally go get a tool like Ulead's GIFAnimator.

Not wanting to offer my opinion of ulead anything at this point. The
problem is not that I can not create animated gifs, I have several tools for
doing that. The problem is I need to create the animated gif at run time in
my code. I can build all the pages but I am having trouble putting them
together, any other suggestions?

Regards,
John

Hi John,

Can you show me how did you create your animated gif file in memory?
I think if you can succeed create your animated gif in memory as a image
class
instance, you can use its save method to write to disk.

Hello Jeffrey,

Maybe I mis-stated, the problem is I can not create an animated GIF in
memory. I can create several GIF files, save them and then use another
application to build the animated GIF. What I need is a way to add to the
first GIF in memory.

As for code it's something like this:

for(int i=0; i<5; i++)
{
Image image = new Bitmap(100,100);
Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(image);
g.DrawString(i.ToString(), etc...
image.Save(i.ToString()+".gif", ImageFormat.Gif);
}

Regards,
John

Hi John,

It seems of that creating animated gif file is not supported in GDI+.
May be you can create an animated tiff file as a workaround, you can refer
to the
sample below:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...us/gdicpp/GDIP
lus/usingGDIPlus/usingimageencodersanddecoders/creatingandsavingamultiplefra
meimage.asp

I recommand you use some image tool to generate your animated gif files.
If you want to create it yourself, the link below may be help:
http://www.msg.net/utility/whirlgif/

Btw: May be you should post this post in the GDI newsgroup, because it
mainly related to GDI.

Hope this helps

Hello Jeffrey,

I'm in the wrong group again, yi gads... guess I need to be more careful :)

Well the good news is the Multi Image Tiff works fine, the bad news is I
have only found one program that can display it past the first page.

The other good news is the one program that does display it can save as a
Animated Gif (saves a step) so it's a little easier now, the bad news is it
does not allow me to create on the fly.

If Explorer could display it then it would not be a problem but Explorer
wants to use QuickJunk to display it and it only displays the first page.
Stange because the Windows Fax and Image viewer can display Animated Gif and
seems to like the first page of the Tif you would think it would display it.

Well thanks anyway, leaned something new and I now know how to get the list
of filenames that can be decode, wow!

Oh well I guess I will move this topic the the correct group.

Regards,
John

Hi John,

I am glad the information I provided does make sense.
Do you mean that you only can find one program that can display the tiff
dynamic?
Also, this tool can change this animated tiff into animated gif?
What do you mean that the tool can not make animated gif on the fly?

If you still have any question, please feel free to tell us, I am glad to
work with you.

Best regards,
Jeffrey Tan

P: n/a
Hello Jeffrey,

Yes I have only found one program that will display an animated tiff
correctly (paint shop pro 8's animation program). All the other progams on
my computer only display the first page of the animated tiff.

I still do not have a way of making an animated gif from my program.
Currently I use PSP8 to open the animated tiff and then save it as an
animated gif. I can not expect the people using my program to do this.

Regards,
John

Hi John,

I am glad the information I provided does make sense.
Do you mean that you only can find one program that can display the tiff
dynamic?
Also, this tool can change this animated tiff into animated gif?
What do you mean that the tool can not make animated gif on the fly?

If you still have any question, please feel free to tell us, I am glad to
work with you.

Best regards,
Jeffrey Tan

Hi John,

The GDI+ does not support the animated gif encode, so I think
there is no way for the .Net Framework to convert the animated tiff file
to gif file.
The only way is convert on your self using the gif specification document.
I am sorry I did not fimiliar with the gif format, so I suggest you go to
the
GDI group to ask how to conver the using the gif specification.

Btw: I have one thought may be help:
You can use the programming interface of PaintShop pro 8.0, I think its
will
provide you the function of converting tiff to giff.(May be even creating
the animated gif
file through PSP8.0's SDK).
Then you can release your product packing the PSP SDK.
Also, may be getting the PSP programming SDK needs offerring some money for
the licence.

You can consult in the GDI group or PSP technical support for the details

Hope this help you
