Posted by curaga on Feb. 29 2008,12:24I discovered how Mtpaint has way more features than it looks like.
Gif animation features however need Gifsicle, but then it produces *excellent* output.
I created the following image using only Mtpaint and Gifsicle:
It's a 3-minute video, with gently swirling stars. And it's 352kb in size!
25 FPS (= really good quality) and yet so small size.
How does it look like?
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Feb. 29 2008,14:23Looks good here on Firefox, but is there any reason for the .jpg extension?

Posted by curaga on Feb. 29 2008,15:54The .jpg is because of tinypic.com. Dunno why they change it.
Posted by JohnJS on Feb. 29 2008,21:39Does the tar.gz Gifsicle from Mpaint have to be "converted" to DSL tar.gz?
(see page 201 of DSL book).
If it does, will it appear in "Testing" soon?.
Posted by curaga on Mar. 01 2008,09:16Ah. I only found out it was needed some days ago.
Yes, it would need to be compiled. I can do that soon.
Posted by curaga on Mar. 01 2008,10:08Done, and sent to Robert.
Posted by JohnJS on Mar. 02 2008,14:31Many thanks curaga,
Downloaded Gifsicle from Testing. It works just fine.
