    Gif rape is when the gif has different colors than the original pivot file.
    It also sometimes effects the placement of things, but on a miniscule level.

    Gif rape is a term used to describe the poor quality of the gif compared to the piv file. Although it mainly happens to detailed animations.

    Example;
    http://pivotup.com/files/2j16ol9k.piv

    As you can see the piv file is very detailed. However, if you save it as a gif using pivots saving method you get this;


    As you can see, the colours and detail have all disappeared in the gif.

    As for 'Rust Break' or 'Rust free', those are terms used by animators who have not animated in some time, and aren't animating up to their usual standards. Although most people around here tend to call them 'Lazy' instead.

    I hope that helped.
