I'd like to know how to add sound to a gif, . . . (very simple animations)

What are the basics, for beginners ?

Do I need to go out and buy anything ?

I want to make the character in the animation, talk, give it a voice, . .

Not only add music, but give it a personal vocabulary, (speech) !

I have a tape recorder with mic, . . I have Blank CD's, . I think they record sound ?

Is it possible for me to get this done, . like in the next couple hours ?

You cannot add sounds to a .gif image. You would either have to make a video, an HTML document, or use Flash to make an .swf animation.

In the next couple of hours? Not likley.

First of all the file format .gif is defined by Webopedia as: graphics interchange format, a bit-mapped graphics file format. GIF supports color and various resolutions. It also includes data compression, but because it is limited to 256 colors, it is more effective for scanned images such as illustrations rather than color photos.

.gif does not support any sound type file formatting. There may be software that synchronizes file types but I have no idea what that software might be. Choosing another file format is your best bet. One that comes to mind is flash. But .gif won't allow sound in it's native format.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

Thanks Much, for your replies,

OK, I passed on the next couple of hrs, or even day or days, . .

I soon after found the gif. defin. and saw that this does not happen, . .

I can see I to need to study this, just thinking there might be someone who knows of a

software that will be worth a million to me and I can get it for free just be as happy as a

bunny in the brambles!

So, I'll boil this down to at least some optional choices, . .

I am curious though, . . if you do attach a personalized sound to the animation, . .

is that done by a software that records, if so what does it record on and from where, ?

I mean does that entail a microphone on my end or do I need to record on a CD first ?
