Problem with effect "slide"

Postby skolozhabskiy » Sat Oct 06, 2012 11:01 pm

Good evening,

At me a problem with effect "slide" (I use a direction "left") since a second animation frame.
Problem - when have been animation I seen show by a background of a second (new) picture instead in order that gradually disappeared the old frame and showing the new frame.
This effect normally works only for the first frame. I use animation from four pictures.
Starting with the second picture have been I seen effect with a background of the following image.
How to solve a problem?

Thanks for the help.

I'm not sure how to reproduce this problem. I tried creating 4-frame animation and was able to slide all of the frames just fine. Could you send us some sample images/screenshots to illustrate the problem? You can also write directly to support here: http://www.blumentals.net/support/wizard.php

Hi,


Thanks for the answer.
After reboot of the laptop the problem has disappeared.
But, I have a question - the final file turns out very big to 1 Mb.
How to optimise it, to decrease the size of a file?

To make the file smaller you would have to either make its dimensions smaller by resizing or reduce frame count by making animation shorter or less smooth. The default optimizations are already performed automatically when you saved the animation.

Thanks for the answer

There is one more problem:

If I saved a file of animation with a transparent background that it becomes opaque.
For example, when I open it in a photoshop that a background - white! Why?

The background should not change from transparent to white. Are you sure that is what's happening? If that is the case, please send me the frames so that we can try to reproduce this problem and fix it.

Thanks for the answer.

You can reproduce a problem so:

1. To take two any images in a format png with a transparent background!
2. To create in program Easy GIF Animator any animation.
3. To save animation as gif file.
4. To open this gif a file in a photoshop cs4 : File-> Import-> Fraims video to layers-> in Load dialog (in name file *. *) and get gif file.
5. The animation file has changed the background with transparent to the opaque.

I just created an animation from 2 PNG files with transparent background and the resulting GIF was transparent. I don't have Photoshop so I don't know if it would display them as white but both Windows preview and Web browser display the transparency correctly.

Thanks for the answer, but it are very bad. A problem very important. In a photoshop it is possible to reduce considerably the size of a file without change of sizes of images.
