Have you tried UnFREEz
I don't know if it'll handle 300 images, but it's free, so there's nothing to lose by trying.
It'll allow you to drag the whole lot, into the program, and create the animation.
Here's a quick how to:Note:
Make a copy of your images to work with.
That way, you don't risk damaging the originals.
Make sure all of your images are the same size.
Make sure all of your images are in the .gif format, named the same, and in a consecutive order.
Something like; animation_000.gif, animation_001.gif, animation_002.gif, animation_003.gif, etc.
If they're not, use this tutorial to batch convert, and rename:Batch Renaming Using Irfanview
In Step 1 of the tutorial, when in the Batch conversion
dialog box, instead of using the "Batch rename" option, select the "Batch conversion - Rename result files" option.NOTE:
The following steps can be found, in more detail, in the tutorial, Resizing An Animated Gif
Follow this link, and go to post #2.
Open the file containing the converted, and renamed images.
Grab the bottom of the window, and drag it up.
This is to make room for UnFREEz
, to be placed underneath it.
, and drag it under the window containing your images.
Click the first image (animation_000)
to highlight it.
Hold the Shift
key, and click the last image.
This will highlight all of the images.
Grab (left click, and hold the mouse button down)
, and drag it into the open window of UnFREEz
, then release the mouse button.
All of your images have been loaded into UnFREEz
Put a check next to the Loop animation
box if you want your animation to keep replaying, over and over.
Set the Frame delay (1, will give you a frame delay of 1/100 of a second, so an entry of 100, equals 1 second)
Click the Make Animated GIF
Another window will open, in which you will be able to name, and pick a place to save your animation.
Don't close UnFREEz
until you have the speed of the animation set the way you want it.
It'll save you having to reload the images again, if your not satisfied with the first result.
While all the images are loaded into UnFREEz
, I'd suggest making several animations, at different Frame Delays.
That way, you can compare the different speeds, side-by-side, to decide on which one looks the best.
That's all there is to it.
Sounds a lot harder, than what it really is.
Just read the UnFREEz
tutorial, and watch the video,
If you have any questions about any of these steps, just ask..
