    Anyone know of any software? I really don’t want to use videomach to split it into .bmp or .jpg, then have to convert each file. Thanks in advance.

    It may not be the best thing to use, but Jasc Animation Shop will work. I’ve used it before for the same thing. You can get the 11Mb free trial at
    http://www.jasc.com/trialreg.asp?pid=003. By the way, you don’t have to register if you don’t want to. Just clicking continue will allow you to download.

    I already have Animation shop, but I guess I was un aware of all its functions. Thanks Alex. I’ll have to play around with that for a bit.

    GIMP does what you want. Its free and it does what you want. I needed some jpg’s turned into a .gif too, and a friend told me to use that. Should work, im assuming…


    Oh, wait, lol, i think GIMP was for alpha chanells because i dont have money for anything else lol. Might wanan check it out anyway.

    EDIT: Just checked out the site and yes, read this (its on the about gimp page)

    File formats supported include gif, jpg, png, xpm, tiff, tga, mpeg, ps, pdf, pcx, bmp, and many others.

    So yes, it can save as gif!

    Well… the Gimp technically should be able to do this, but its animation capabilities are severely limited. For example, your list of Jpegs should be sequential, numbered with four digits, or you can forget importing them at once.

    I’d like to throw another one in the mix: Animator 9. Never tried it, but if Thomas Foote puts it on his website, it has to do something right.

    I’ve had that problem, too, and I search for it on Google i think and came up with a program called movies12. It is extremely easy to use. All you do is select the avi or gif file, then save it as a different avi or gif, then it converts it by itself. The actual program lets you do tons of stuff with gifs, too. :-P
    This is the program i used to convert the .gif avatar on the left from an .avi to a gif.

    Animated .gifs. I wanted to still use SMA for the most part. I guess I will just have to quit being lazy and use videomach to split into .jpgs, then convert each to .gif. Just looking for a shortcut.

    OK, did you read my earlier post at all?
    I don’t have the same avatar anymore, so maybe thats why or somethin.
    Oh well here it is again. Movies12 is THE EASIEST, FREEEST(if thats a word) way to do it. Go to this link. Download movies12. open movies12. click on one of the menu options at the top. Go to avi-gif converter(or something to that effect). CONVERT!
