We're using ImageMagick 6.3.0-1 Beta and the annotations where three different colors as expected. Which version of ImageMagick are you using?

You will need to create unique temporary files to avoid that type of issue. Its also a scripting problem not an IM problem. Typically you add the process ID to the filename EG $$
that that isn't always guranteed either.

Just remember to ensure the script cleans up the files, even when 'killed'.

Alturnativally pipe the frames to the animation command..

Code: Select all

exec("sh -c \"( $convert .... miff:-; $convert .... miff:-;  $convert .... miff:-; ) | $convert -delay 30 -dispose Background page +0+0  miff:-  -loop 0 test.gif"); 
See IM Examples on MIFF format...

The sh -c was to allow you to group the comamnds in shell parenthesis, then pipe all those commands output into the final command.

( cmd; cmd; cmd; ) | cmd

It may not be needed as the exec may pass the string to a shell for you. I don't know.
