It hasn't been long since the last update to Gif Animator, but here we are with a new monster update. This update offers various UI tweaks and enhancements, some performance improvements, the odd new tool and quite a few bug fixes.
The next update to the Gif Animator is fast approaching, and it's quite a big one - there's a very long list of both bug fixes and new features. In fact, I'm pretty pleased with the way the product is evolving, although there's still much to do. Several of the enhancements in the forthcoming updates deal with resizing animations and images and cropping images, and this post will briefly cover these new tools.
GIF images have both their strong sides and their downsides. Whilst not supporting any form of alpha transparency, they do offer turning one colour entry per frame into a fully transparent pixel. While our GIF animator fully supports this, it isn't the most user friendly of experiences. One of the improvements to be found in the next build is an improved transparency selection tool.
The version 0.0.3.0 update for Cyotek's Gif Animator has been released complete with several new features for working with animations.
Although we haven't really drawn attention to it by providing samples or SDK documentation, all of Cyotek's products are extensible in various ways. As long as you can code in a .NET language and can work with the API each product provides that is.
Cyotek's Gif Animator is no exception. The currently released version supports the same level of "standard" add-ins that other products include, and the development version now includes a new experimental image effects plugin system too.
