combinated gif, it's possible?

Post by jgespi »

Hello, I pass by here with a concern ...

Is it possible manipulate loop into an animated gif? Typically the gif plays continuously from beginning to end, with loop option, but is it possible that you can enter events so that they can achieve inner loops in animation? I refer the attached diagram to see if I can explain my point ...

Image

The idea would be this ... for example, from a gif animated, getting that a group of them plays a given number of times, and then continue playing the remaining frames and then return to beginning, to repeat the cycle mentioned ... it would be a way to optimize file space, eliminating redundant entire sequences, something like combinated gifs into a single gif

Thanks for any help ^^

Nope.

GIF has loop for the whole GIF. It is all or nothing.

Most other animation formats don't even have that, just one continuious sequence.

The only thing you can do, is to prepare a sequence of looped images and insert it into the animated GIF.

They must have the same delay to be merged.

The MNG format allows multiple loops and nested loops.

Some information (or pointers) to how to do that with MNG would be good.
