Hmm....unless I'm mistaken, I believe that .gif's are not 3d. They're simply pictures displayed in frames much like a movie that create a motion-like apperance.

For "moving" them, do you mean saving them then viewing them later on (like emailing them to others and letting them view it)? If that's the case, then you'd (or whomever is viewing it) would have to open it up in something that would "play" the .gif. Internet Explorer will play a .gif, along with Windows picture and fax viewer and Adobe Image Ready. Microsoft (windows) paint will not let a .gif play.

Hope it helps!

Where do you want to move them from, and where do you want to move them to?
Please give more detail. :thumbsup:
And actually Steve, gifs can be both animated and 3-d. ;)
And gifs, if I'm correct are the only file format that supports animations.

:thumbsup: I guess that I'm just used to Adobe Image Ready....using .jpg's to make animation then saving as a .gif to allow the animation to be viewed later. I made my sig (below) a long time ago, and used .jpg's, and then had them show at different times to create an animation like effect. I guess I need to polish up on my 3D stuff :inlove: Being a photographer, everything is 2D to me...... :flowers:

Sorry for the confusion :trumpet:

Hey it's ok. :thumbsup: You didn't do anything.
I am just trying to help too.
Truthfully, you know more about graphics than I.
{Nice sig! A bit of re-sizing and it would would work here.}

Part of your job description will now entail keeping me inline. Good luck with that........you'll need it! LOL!!! Kidding!!! :thumbsup:

Thanks for the compliment on the sig, too. It was the first sig I ever made. Originally, I had it so that stars "twinkled" in the background, but had to do away with those because of size restraints on another forum. Like the bonehead that I am, I neglected to save the original as a copy, and saved over it with with smaller version :flowers: Oh well, lesson learned.

John S, is any of this info helping you? If you answered Scarletts' questions, I'm sure you'd get better answers :trumpet:

To my understanding a photo that is a GIFS is like this :thumbsup: , It will more. If you try to copy it on another photo you will loose the movemont. If you try to edit them the movement is gone. Will thet help. thanks

Ok, lemme see if I can explain this, bear with me please.....

A gif consists of mulitple pictures (jpg's) that are stacked in layers and faded in and out to show an action or motion. There is a time delay between the frames (making a "frame rate") that can be adjusted to lengthen or shorten how long each individual frame is shown. You can also adjust the opacity (how "see through") it is, which will show or hide the next layer.

I've made a real quick .gif to demonstrate. I simply made the word "motion", with each letter being it's own layer. I put a small delay between the frames of .2 seconds to help space them out, and made it blink at the end.

Posted Image

In the program I use (Adobe Image Ready), it shows the frame, time delay and other things that you can adjust. I'll put a screen shot below of the .gif I made in Image Ready. In frame 1, the "M" appears for .2 seconds, then in frame 2 the "O" appears for .2 seconds, frame 3 shows "T" for .2 seconds so forth and so on. It's just a matter of showing and hiding different layers (jpg's) at different times, showing other layers (different jpg's) for different times, and having them placed so that it looks the way you want it to. I believe that you need a program to work with layers to create a .gif. I could be wrong, as I'm limited to using Image Ready.

Posted Image

Is this good, or would you like me to explain about layers (different pictures) and layer opacity (visability of a pictutre or layer) more?
