Recently I've embarked on a graphic campaign and am developing some motion graphics for business and for entertainment, and would like to know about the following, . .

I am under the impression that giff's and videos can be opened to see the individual frames that comprise the construction ?

Is that true ?

Well, yes, but you may be restricted by your programs.

GIMP (freeware) will open all the frames of a gif for you.

Irfanview will allow you to extract all frames, rather than put them up sequentially.

Video editing programs allow you to load the video and work through the frames individually;
however, I have a 'bought' program (RoxioEMC9) and have not tried any freeware video editors,
so suggestions might be useful.

Hi Pete,
The reason I'm asking is because, a week or so ago, While having a gif, open I swear I clicked something, being busy having the lights not up, and a growing need to wear glasses while working, and
and up pops what looks like a folder full of the frames of the gif.

Hey Maybe I'm over worked ! :thumbsup:

"While having a gif open" - explain. What program opened your gif.

If you painstakingly create your animations, picture by picture, does it not
follow that you will have a folder full of them somewhere.

Or you may have clicked on some command or other, e.g. "most recently used directory"
which would display your individual pictures.

Who knows! If you don't know what you were doing, I'm sure I don't!

Pete,
I posed my question curious to know if that was possible, I recall the time you stated to me that there were seventeen frames, in one of my gifs, I never did ask you, . . how you knew that, . . and yes I suppose it was accidental, creating these graphics gets me sleepy behind the wheel at times, I just keep going and can't let it alone till I reach a miles stone.

Load your gif into Irfanview - click on Image / Information. :thumbsup:

I overlooked the obvious;

Just right click on your gif, select Properties / Summary and you should see the frame count.

Yes. . . It was earlier today, when accidentally leaving on the playing program I discovered it tends to close after a time, and leaves behind a lot of strange occurrences, one of which is file data on the desk top have not figured out exactly what takes place, . strange huh .

In further explanation,
I may step out for a cup of coffee and forget and take a little longer away than I thought I would, and when I return, . . all kinds of things are staring at me from my desk top.

Hardly normal behaviour. Time for a clean install? Perhaps the usual scans first?
