    Gif Settings?

    A lot of people use different gif settings. I know some people have frame delay to 5, some 6 or 7. I use 6. And we already know the resize settings so don' t need to talk about. What i really wanna know is what does merge, crop, and palette mean? What does each on of them do. Some people take off merge and leave pallete and leave crop on, some people only leave crop on. What are the best settings and why? These are all questions i have been thinking about when i save a gif. Also if you have any questions about beta 3 gif settings, you can post them here. I see different settings on each tutorial. So someone please explain what are these.

    • Merge: Merges frames together, which means that any frames that you want repeated over again, it will merge them into one frame. if you want a pause in your animation, click this off[/*:m:1jhf0ooj]
    • Crop: not sure what this exactly does, but leave it on.[/*:m:1jhf0ooj]
    • Palette: click this to use the original colors in your animation. if you don't use this, specific colors chosen may be different in final form.[/*:m:1jhf0ooj]


    I think the best settings are:
    Merge: Off
    Crop: On
    Palette: Off

    Why?: Because these have been the settings for a long time and it works well.

    I really don't think there is a best, but I would go with 6.
