Feature Request: Convert to GIF?


#21

I’ve just put up a new build (#706) which fixes this issue. Try it out and let me know how it works for you: http://flyingmeat.com/download/latest/#retrobatch

Hi @ccgus,

Thank you very much! This is working fine now.

Unfortunately, I discovered another problem. I tried to create an animated GIF from a PDF using the Layer and Page Splitter node. The animation also disappeared from the GIF.

It’s the scaling node, it’ll kill off the animation (I’ll have to figure out how to detect that and put up a warning). So if you swap the order of the scale and animated gif nodes, then you’ll be good (and processing will also be faster- smaller images for the gif encoder to optimize!)

Indeed, I swapped the order and the workflow is working fine now. Thanks!
