APNG Support idea

Post by Solovei95 »

I suggest to add support APNG support.
1. -dispose and -delay must works in PNG
2. ImageMagick should be contain apngasm, apngdis, apng2gif, gif2apng and apngopt (Sourceforge).

I wish there was an ani2apng that converted animated cursors to animated png since there are so many .ani files already out there that only work on webpages when visiting with IE. Something like ani2apng would let Firefox and Opera see the same animated cursors. Webkit browsers would be more likely to get apng support before .ani support in the future too.

Have you tried using MNG instead of APNG. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MNG. IM supports MNG. It is also a PNG format for animation.

Unfortunately there is no browser support anymore for MNG.

Glenn,

Thanks for the update on MNG. I had no idea regarding that, though I have never used it.

I think he was going by the support listed in the wiki article you linked to. Specifically there is no native support for MNG without plugins in any browsers except Konqueror, while all Presto and Gecko based browsers support APNG, which degrades gracefully to show the first frame as a normal PNG in all other browsers.

APNG is now supported by Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Safari iOS and soon Opera (coming in v46). Once Edge supports APNG, that'll be every major browser.

It'd be great if ImageMagick would support creation of APNG and conversion of GIF to APNG.

APNG is the default format for Apple's message stickers. ImageMagick should support it.
