    Choppy Saving?

    This is really weird..... whenever I save something as a .gif file, it's really choppy and slow. Any way I can change this?

    I've done 1-6, and it's all the same.

    do 6 or 7. SOmetimes it shows the framerate different on your comp when you save it as a gif. Upload it on the internet, and see how fast it is then. Remember, 6 or 7. 6 puts the FPS at around 17, and 7 puts it at around 12

    1. Save at frame rate 6.
    2. Resize by 1/2 or 1/3 or 1/4. Anything smaller is almost worthless unless you're using it as an emoticon or avatar.

    If they fail, you could just be lacking smoothness in general animation?

    Or you could be viewing the gif by windows picture and fax viewer? that always makes everything look slow.

    use pivot host or imageshack if you want it to look like it does in pivot.

    like i said the windows picture and fax viewer slows it all down.

    BNothing will work. Just trust that it'll be normal in imageshack, that's what I do.
