Is there a tool to create a
gif animation from a set of
I tried the
convert command from the ImageMagick suite, but this doesn't always succeed. Also, I have several issues with this:
- I can't tell what the progress is.
- No matter what I try, the
-delayflag doesn't change the frame rate of the gif animation.
convertdetermines the frame order based upon the alphabetical order of the files names. This means that
name500.pngwill be placed right after
name50.pngand not after
name450.pngI can fix this by adding 0's but this is annoying.
convertafter sorting the files. Probably, something like this works
files=$(ls name*png | sort -n -tname -k1); convert $files animation.gif
-monitorparameter that tracks the process
convert -delay 200 -loop 0 *.jpg output.gif.
