Speed of gif is very fast

Post by Markmilleru2 » 2018-10-14T08:47:19-07:00

Hi all, I am a Linux user in which I have used the "convert" command to get a list of images from a .mov file and converting those images into a .gif.

While the process works, whenever I used the ImageMagick application to open the .gif files, the speed that it is playing the .gif is very fast, and there is a need for me to click on the "speed" button followed by the "slower" option on secondmic so as to match the speed with the .mov. My question would be wow can I check or ensure that the .gif animation is playing at its 'supposed' speed/ framerate? (Using either the Faster/ Slower speed does not seems to assure me that I am converting my .gif animation correctly..)

add -delay XX before reading the input image in the command that creates the animation

Code: Select all

convert -delay 50 image1 image2 ... imageN -loop 0 animation.gif
See
