Playback of optimized GIF animations

Post by XnTriq » Sun Jun 24, 2007 9:00 pm

On Yuri Mezentsev's site I found several animated GIFs that are displayed correctly in Firefox and IE, but not in XnView (or I****View): They're heavily optimized. Some (but not all) frames have a local palette.

:) Hello Mr. Librarian !

• I can confirm for the three images. They are badly displayed in XnView.

- They are displayed so fine in Opera 9.21 too.

- I checked in “GifMovieGear”, you are right, some frames have a local palette.
- Indeed, that programme displays the previews very nicely…

• IIRC, such an issue occured already and has been reported, but I can't find out again in which thread…

I suppose you are referring to one of these topics:

:) Hi again…

• Yes, they are the threads I thought to…

• However, in one your link to «fix the bug…» or so is dead, it causes an error message :
“The thread you ask for doesn't exist”.
- Maybe lost when the forum has hung for a long while (or has been hacked) and not recovered ?

Thanks, Clo. The topic is still there, I just had to update the link I posted in “Crash with animated gif image + ico suggestion”.
As Brotondi has pointed out, the threads containing the change logs are apparently sometimes relocated by the mods.

As Clo's protégé I'm following my mentor's example in keeping a collection of “5-legged sheep” and other zoological oddities. :P

I was hoping that Maître Gougelet can find some kind of common characteristic in these animations which would allow him to track the problem down.

confirmed here too.

besides this, there's also a bug when "drawing" a selection on these animated gifs: http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?p=62820#62820

That was fast! The display bug with Runner_3.gif & 5607.gif is fixed in v1.94 beta 1. Thanks, Pierre 8)

The issues with acu100_1.gif, estate100_3.gif & job100_1.gif are still pending, though.

acu100_1.gif and estate100_3.gif are played back correctly in v1.94.
job100_1.gif is the only one left now that's still misbehaving.

:) Hello W. !

• I've that image in two locations, exactly the same 10.6 Kio - stated equal with the compare by contents TC function.
- The one in the root of my Images dir. k:\Images\job100_1.gif works OK,
- The other in a sub-dir of that same folder k:\Images\Tests\job100_1.gif crashes XnView 1.96 ß-1
with the usual Bill's blah blah, error address :
AppName: xnview.exe AppVer: 1.96.0.0 ModName: xnview.exe
ModVer: 1.96.0.0 Offset: 000dba79
- I assume that's related to the new "Read backward" feature (?), I've a lot of such crashes randomly
with any image type set @ any location… :|
