Out of curiosity, what tool do you use to assemble the frames into an animated gif?
Aexion's avatar
I use VirtualDub for assembling the frames and Infarview for lowering the color depth.
I already wrote a journal about the whole process, here is the link:

Also, try APNG, since it allows you to use the full color range!(its on the journal too!)
BTW, incredible animation!!

VirtualDub? I use it to save as AVI, where is the command to save as gif?
Aexion's avatar
It's on the export section, in the file tab. (File/Export/Animated Gif)

Thanks! How could I have missed it?!!
Aexion's avatar
Sometimes happens (I also didn't find it at first!..) :)

:D
Mmmh, and now how to export with the original color palette? It seems it exports only with 256 colors...
Aexion's avatar
For more than 256 colors, only APNG! Gif uses only 256 colors and you have to lower the color depth of the frames (use IrfanView with Floyd Steinberg dithering enabled before building the animation!).
APNG is not restricted to that, since it is PNG, but few browsers can handle it (Firefox, Opera and Chrome, as far as I know).
I use both for my animations.. here are two examples of how they end:
Gif Animated (Floyd Steinberg),

APNG, full color, but only few browsers:

APNG is not handled by VirtualDub, so I have used APNG anime maker: [link]

Hope that helps! :)

Pretty cool! Looks like a Bryce background.

Bryce 360º environments are great and they fits perfectly for my utterly evil needs!!
El-Flaco44's avatar
I totally agree! :) I too prefer the more evil environment renderings. Again, good work!
