An Animated GIF Renderer
The online tool I am releasing today is another one of the projects I did a while ago (December 2013 in this case). The difference here is that someone asked me to build it for them. The tool allows you to stich a number of still images into an animated gif.
Having an online version of the tool on a server that I own seems like a good idea (so I can keep it up to date) - so I am releasing it on this site for you to use.
A description of the options and known issues can be found below. If you just want to skip all that and play around with it for yourself, please follow this link:
A description of all the options available can be found below:
|Repeats||The number of repeats. -1 = no repeat, 0 = repeat forever.|
|Default Delay||The default delay each still image should be given when first dragged into the tool. Remember to set this before you drag all your images in to save time!|
|Frames per second||An alternative method of setting the default delay. Simply enter the number of frame you want to show per second.|
|Workers*||The number of threads to use to render the animated gif. For optimum performace enter the number of cpu cores you have. This will speed up the rendering process for large gifs.|
|Quality*||The quality of the resultant gif. In the code this is referred to as the pixel sample interval. I don't really understand this setting myself - if you do, please leave a comment below and I will update both this post and the tool itself.|
A '*' indicates an advanced setting.
The 'x' button to remove an image is buggy.- Fixed! A new image removal system has been implemented to fix this bug. The size of the rendered gif i snot updated when images are removed- Fixed! The maximum image dimensions are now recalculated when an image is removed.
