Using the UnFREEZ program for creating GIF animations, I am finding the need for a faster frame

change, it seems not to change much when you get to the smaller numbers near zero, and it isn't fast enough for the needed effect.


This is a pretty good little program, and is easy to use, can anyone recommend something similar but a little faster ?

Hi, I use Microsoft Gif Animator to change the time between frames. I create GIF's using GIMP (open source image manipulation software) and then with MGA I adjust the time between frames. The time can be changed in steps of 10ms. (If this is not precise enough, I recommend GIMP, although overkill. Speaking of GIMP, I recommend it anyway, it is a good program). Just open the GIF, select the frames for which you want to set the delay and set it, it's all pretty self explanatory.

MGA used to come preinstalled with Windows, OR was available for free from Micros0ft site. I found a downloadlink for you here. It is CNET. Most people on here can testify CNET executables are malware-free.

Removed link to the freeware Beneton program.
Link scanner said site was OK, but Windows Defender indicated some form of browser hijack.

Did you select all the frames when you set the delay time? Did you save afterwards?

Try opening the GIFS with Firefox/internet explorer instead of with windows image viewer.

In UnFREEz I see the box for Info for select Frame, but it is greyed out, . . I never used it before, . . regarding MS-A, I don't see a selection option ?

I am not familiar with the procedure for opening GIFS with FF/IE ? I mean the saved GIF is on the Desktop, and I click it to run the Animation ?

You can select all by clicking one one frame and then press Ctrl+A, but you already found how this works:)

If you want to open a GIF now you just double click it and it opens in shiny Windows Image Viewer, like your JPEGs. Windows Image Viewer has only one speed to play GIFs, so you need to open it in a program that is able to play it at the correct speed (say a web browser). To do this, right click the GIF file, select 'Open With' -> 'Choose Program' and select your favourite web browser.

You could also open the file in Firefox OR IE by clicking 'File' in the menu bar at the top of the screen, select open and browse to the location of your GIF.

OK, I see how it opens with Firefox, I did not know that Windows Image Viewer was set at one speed only, but now the question is if I place it in an email, how will it appear to the recipient ?

It's nice to see people still busy with animated GIFs.

If they view their mail online it views fine, depending on their attachment settings. Regarding offline mail clients, outlook 2003 has support for animated GIFS but outlook 2007 has not. Also, GIYF

I made some graphic adjustments to the pictures to make them appear a bit more like the speedup version, and is about all I can do with this at this time.

I will look into to your suggested references, Thanks much.
