AVI conversion questions.....

(Cujo31) #1

Anyone know how to convert a avi file from blender into say a animated “gif” file that can be used on a webpage. I have tried using the AVI by embedding it in the HTML and it is just a pain to work with.

thanks for the help in advance.

You can’t use AVIs. You need individual images.

You will need to save the images as a sequence, probably TARGA with an alpha channel. Convert the images to GIFs. There are some freeware programs available that will make the animated GIFs.

search in google for VIRTUAL DUB

With this program you can make image sequences in alle formats. of course gifs.

There are alot of free anigif tools out, which can either use a jpg or tga sequence as input or a avi file or something.

Just try searching on google.com or download.com,

Hey Hadj thanks I appreciate the link. I have saved my file as both AVI raw and AVI JPG and keep getting errors when I try to open it in this program. Am I missing something?

Have you used this program before? Any tips for me???

Thanks a LOT!

Hi Cujo,

I havent had any problems with "avi edit", I just opened both types of AVIs to make sure,

I`m not much help in solving the problem your having, sorry, but

have you played with this file:


you can push the surface of a mesh plane around with an object
ie: a boat cutting a “V” wave as it`s moving through the water.

(I`m sorry to who ever wrote the script, that I forgot your name"Sorry"
if anyone can give us some information on the person that wrote the
scipt, i sure would be greatful, Thanks)

This is illegal. I am going to be a media designer and I will make money out of the programs I use. I really don´t want to take the first step into a financial grave. So I rather stick to an old and legal version of Corel photo paint 8, til Photoshop 6 gets cheaper.

Anyways, I don´t like cracked versions. You never know what´s in it and it is really great for hiding a trojan horse.

And one word for Adobe. From my point of view they really deserve the money (If I think of all the layer functions in Photoshop :o ). So I will try to save the money ( approximately ten months without spending something unnecessary). They did excellent jobs with Acrobat distiller, Photoshop and the PDF format. PDF is a revolution for print.

If I were you, I´d rather edit your link to a “censored”, although I appreciate your help. But I owe a lot to the quality work of Adobe, so try not to damage them.

Did I sound offended? No offense taken, be sure.

And I´ll ignore this slavery response of yours

By the way, I can´t edit your posts. only the forum gods can do that…and they did.
