    Smoother saving

    Hey everybody.
    So a while back, someone posted a tutorial on how to make your animations
    not gif raped. The only thing was, the end result was in an avi file. So
    what I'm going to do today is show you how to make a non-raped gif. Notice,
    I said, "non raped GIF" Yes, so that means that you can make a gif
    image from your pivots without it getting raped.
    so, tl;dr, I will show you how to make non-raped gifs.

    First you will need two things:
    1. GIMP. Photoshop might work also, I'm not sure though as I don't have it.
    Download GIMP for free here.
    2. Pivot 3. Yeah, for this tutorial you will need it. But don't worry, you
    won't use it to animate, unless you already do. Download it Here


    Okay, so make your animation. If you use pivot 2 or 3, it doesn't matter.
    Anyway, I would only recomend doing this on animations that have complicated
    backgrounds or effects. If your animation is simple, just save it normaly,
    because gif wont rape those.


    Now you see mine? this little ball of fun is made up of like, 20 or 30 stks.

    Now i made a simple animation with it, and saved the normal way, its way raped:

    Now using my method, it should come out more like this:


    so how to do it?
    Lets get started
    yeah, so open up your animation in pivot 3. then go to file>save, and save it
    as "seperate images". Then a little window comes up. Use these settings:


    Now open Gimp up. Go to File>Open. Open up the first image that you have made. It should be some kind of name plus 0 plus .jpg.
    lol so it should be like lolk0.jpg
    So open that up and it will be the first frame in your ani.
    Now up in the corner of the window, go to file>Open as Layers. Open the rest of your frames from here. So there will be lolk1.jpg, lolk2.jpg and so on.
    so open all of those.
    Now go to file>save as and save it as nonraped.gif and click save.
    then when a little window comes up use this:

    Now click export, then just click ok or whatever.
    now you have a non raped gif!!!!


    Thar it is.
    If you have any questions just ask.
    thanks for reading

    People were complaining about the fact that the animation was too slow. Well they just need to type "66" when The GIMP is asking them how many miliseconds they want between frames.
    Sorry about bad english, but I guess you got it.

    pivot has a not-so-good way of saving gifs.
    Gimp has a very good way, so that way, they don't get raped.
