    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.

    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. 😛
    This is the program i used to convert the .gif avatar on the left from an .avi to a gif.

    Why do you want to turn a movie into a picture?(That explains alot. 😆 )


    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!


    Won’t let me upload .avis though, atleast not from what I can tell

    OK, it took me 20 mins to get all this done in paint, but here ya are, the ultimate guide to doing what Strongest wants!
    Just follow the step by step guide, and if you have any problems, feel free to throw a large brick at this post.
    1. Open Movies12.exe

    2. Go to the Menu bar. Under Tools, click on AVI to GIF converter.

    3. In the new window that pops up, click on ‘Open AVI’, then open the avi file that you want to convert.

    4. Don’t worry if the size doesn’t match the window frame; It doesn’t affect the Gif. Then click on Convert and watch it change. Then save it!

    I truly hope this works for you. I’ve been wondering what you’ve been doing wrong all day and wanted to help.
    Cya! 😀
