Only problem that i face in GIMP is i can't find any way to enter custom time interval between frames.

For example if i need 100 millisecond time interval between frame 1 & 2 & 200 millisecond time between frame 2 & 3 then i will have to repeat frame 2 twice because the time interval is constant for every frame (there is only one value that we can select.)

yes you can - rename the layer to whatever but at the end put (150ms) or whatever so i could have

Layer 1 (150ms)
Layer 2 (4535ms)
etc.

Ashish: all you have to do is duplicate however much.


For example.

duplicate layers 1 and 2 three times and duplicate 4 and 5 ten times

Graphics editors use frames to create animation.


Indeed. Layers are the same thing as frames when making a gif.

options of styling are much limited to suit indexed colors.


How do I fix it?

@ Shahrier - yes duplicating is what i do at present in my animations when i want different time intervals.

@ - Dark - there's no solution that i know because .gif's only handle indexed colors so the images shud be kept simpler.

Wow, surprised that there are so many GIMP users. :cheer: I have a newly launched forum dedicated to this powerful program over at GimpForums.com. Personally, I use GIMP mainly for my web design needs. Looks like I'll have to create some tutorials, including tutorials about animation in GIMP.

Some programs won't let them work on it, so always have two copies of something. It produce one a "work-on" copy in the GIMP, this is called a .xcf file, name it the same only put something like "workon" at the end so they don't get confused.
