Animation support in NCONVERT

Post by DOS386 » Sun Aug 24, 2008 11:41 pm

(no docs, find-out-yourself, as of NC 5.00)

No animations can be created, neither AGIF ( use GIFSICLE, thread: http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?t=3722 download: http://freefile.kristopherw.us/uploads/ ... fs150k.zip ) nor APNG (no solution exists except coding my own ??? )

Both AGIF and APNG can be decomposed

Code: Select all

NC -xall -out bmp ANIMOLD.GIF

Code: Select all

NC -xall -out bmp ANIMNEW.PNG
but following problems can occur:

- very "sensitive" to commandline bugs ( http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?t=15674 )

- if AGIF uses differential frames ("optimized"), only differential frames are extracted. Should extract full frames IMHO (maybe optionally differential, add switch)

- from APNG got full frames, but maybe that's what the APNG contained ... very few APNG's around, testing not too deep :?:
There is indeed no WinZIP under my rock.
