Question: Assembling GIF animations using gimp

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi. I am trying to make an animation with words sliding across the screen, shooting out towards you, etc...

I know how to put together several images and save them as an animation but I need to know how to better assemble this animation procedure. How should I go about making a 30 or 40 framed GIF? Would I need to slowly move the word from left to right and save each frame as I go along? I am looking to use these for web design and can use other programs besides gimp. Thank you

Do you have software that can do this? You'll need that first. The concept otherwise is rather easy. You could do extremely complicated photos by using Adobe Photoshop Elements or just use your own. Each picture has to be slightly different. If you were to make an animation of a person raising his arm, you would do the base picture where his arm is next to his body. Next, you insert a partially modified version of the picture where his arm has started to move upward a little. Its a long process but once you get all of the frames lined up, it'll become a beautiful outcome.

I understand the method in doing this but I want to know if there is an easy way to do it. In other words I don't really have the time to alter each picture then save it and repeat. And I have a program I am using which is Gimp
