GIF question
« on: October 31, 2010, 11:14:43 am »
While looking for a new GIF for my to use as my avatar, I found one that I'd like to alter.  How do I want to alter it?  Well, the character is saying something, and I'd like to put words in the GIF to make it look like the character is saying what I've typed in.  Does anybody know how I can do this?

Capture it frame-by-frame and edit in the words with something like MS Paint and put it together with something like Microsoft Animator or whatever it is called.

Unless my eyes are wack, it looks like there's only two frames.

How do I capture frames?  And my current avatar isn't the one I was talking about... it's this one.

I think there's a trial version of Jast GIF Animator or something that could easily do that.  You'll open it, and it will have each frame as a separate image down at the bottom. You just add the text to which frame you want and save it as a GIF.

Hmm... not sure I wanna trust a trial version; they tend to disappoint me.

Is that a program I can download, or a website, or something else...?

The trial version, last time I used it, was fully featured for 30 days.

Not that I can recall.  I used it awhile ago.

I think any version after 5.0 should suffice. O:
