    Re: How do you make a gif image.

    all the tips above are very good! i'm using same techniques to create those, but there is another way [but you'll need a lot of software to do this one]:

    cut the part of your anime clip you want to make animation from [with adobe premiere or with windows movie maker], then import it in macromedia flash, there you can resize it and manipulating the clip you just imported, the you can export it as a gif animation!

    often animation like this can be very big in kb's or even im Mb's, but if you want short animation of small size [small in width and height] then it is also a good way to create one!

    instead of macromedia flash you can use corel r.a.v.e. > bit different interface [and a bit easier for beginners in flash animation], and there are many of programs that are used for video cuting and manipulation

    i would recommend using flash professional 8 (just download the 30day trial version lol XD)
    anyways, with f8 you can easily make animation images like this

    P.S. i didnt make this XD

    But flash is a very hard programme to get your head around, well so i am told.

    You can small animations with programs such as GIMP 2.2 which i made some of the my userbars with *points to the bottim pic in her sig*. Or you can use Photoshop CS2/ elements (please don't point and laugh at sazzy but its easy to create gifs in that programme). There are tutorials you can find to make animations i don't think they are that hard to find.
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    flash may be a hard program to understand at first, but its truely better at animation than gimp and photoshop, the animations are smoother and its less of a hassle to make animated gifs (once you know the basics of flash) and making a 4-10 layer text animation (without tweening) image in photoshop would take about a minute (for me), while in flash you can give it a text a whole new effect, in about a couple more minutes, also it will make it look smoother.

    Re: How do you make a gif image.

    Ok, well here is the revival of the old "How do make Gifs" thread. Enjoy!

    Requirements for this tutorial:
    1) Adobe ImageReady
    2) Virtual Dub
    3) Internet Explorer 5+
    4) A minor knowledge of the windows interface
    5) Avatars are 100 pixels wide and 51200 bytes max

    Seting up:
    1) Make a folder in which you will do all your work in.
    2) Make a folder called DONE in which you will save your completed Gifs to
    3) I made a separate folder for each character I do and a misc folder each with its own DONE folder for compiled Gifs


    Capturing your screenshots: (Virtual Dub)
    1) Open the episode you want
    2) Press control+g or Edit--->Go to.
    3) Use Jump frame at time: XX:XX:XX

    First XX are minutes, second XX are seconds, XX are fractional seconds (dont worry about this one)
    5) Go to the first frame of the scene you want to capture and press the MARK IN button.
    (At the bottom of the screen the last set of buttons to the right, a black left and right arrow)
    6) Go to the last frame of your scene and press the MARK OUT button kinds looks like _>
    7) File -----> Save image sequence
    8) Choose the location of the folder you made before.
    9) Set number of digits to 3, just to be safe (the number of digits wont affect anything but if you only choose 1 digit and your animation numbers in double digits you will get problems later on)
    10) Name the files and push OK
    11) Wait for it to save your screnshots (the little window in the middle of the window will disappear when its done.


    ImageReady:
    1) Open ImageReady
    2) File -----> Import ------> Folder as frames
    3) Choose the folder you saved your screenshots to
    4) It will load all the pics in order as frames
    5) Image ------> Image size
    6) Change width to 100, most likely its on 640
    7) If you save it as it is now the file will be the right dimensions and you will have an animated gif but it will most likely be too big, you might also want to do some more editing.
    8) At the bottom of the screen there is a wide window that has all the frames in separate thumbs.
    9) Delete frames to decrease file size
    10) If you select a frame and select the new frame button under the thumbs it will make a new frame and in it will be the same pic as the one you had selected before (usefull for loops)
    11) Also use the rectangular marquee to select the area you want to show if you want to show a certain part.
    12) Image ------> Crop.
    13) Cropping and deleting frames (click image then trash can) really makes your gif smaller
    14) If you did that and its still too big, make your width smaller, try not to go under 75 then it gets too small and hard to see.
    15) Crop BEFORE sizing down to 100
    16) When your done go to File ------> Save Optimized Image As
    17) Save it in your DONE folder.
    Useful Tip

    Custom Actions:

    This is one of my favorite features about ImageReady. You can basically have the program "remember" what you do, sort of like teaching it how to do things. I use this to have it "remember" how I did my borders so I can just click the play button and it will do it automatically for me, its very useful and saves you a lot of time:

    Locate the window that has "Layers" tab in it

    1) Click on the "Actions" tab, to the right of the "History" tab.

    2) Click the "Create new action" button. It looks just like the new layer button.

    3) Name it, when you press enter you will see a red dot (recording)

    4) Just about anything you do will be recorded, make a border and hit the stop button. (to the right of the red dot and the left of the "Create new action" button.

    5) Thats all there is to it! Now when you click the play button, it will imitate exactly what you recorded, performing each step in sequential order. click the ">" and it will drop down all the actions it does. You can alter each action to adjust it.

    I made an action for "1 Pixel Black Border" "2 Pixel Black Border" "1 Pixel Foreground color" and so on. This REALLY saves you alot of time. I also made one for the Auto levels/contrast feature. I selected layers and did it like 50 times, doing the process to layer 1, clicking the layer above it and doing the same process again, untill I hit a large number of layers. Now instead of doing Auto levels/contrast to every layer I just click play on this bad boy and usually the whole animation gets done in a second, a miracle action

    open the video file in the bs player and then repeadetly press screen capture shorcut keys [i am not sure, but i think it is ctrl+p or shift+p, just right click on screen and there will be command with shortcut keys on the right side], then go to bsplayer folder take those pics and line it up in adobe image ready, and save it!
