GAP-2.6 for Gimp 2.6-Windows by photocomix-resources GAP-2.6 for Gimp 2.6-Windows by photocomix-resources
EDIT 13 sept 2009

This is a NEW build, fix some issue with the GAP master Videoencoder

And should support more languages then just english

Contain also some additional library to extend auduio support (as default very limited ) to all most commune audio format

some more extra animation script

more clear and detailed instruction for install and use


(Old work..but this work better when is time to finalize the animation as video...)

This is the last release of GAP ( the Gimp Animation Package )
compiled for Windows by JamesH
Actually the installer went MIA , this contain my back up copy

Install is simple how double click on the installer, but there are some extra goodies included:

1) To start the best introductory tutorial for GAP written by Scott Bicknell (AC7ZZ) a copy of the official Doc

2)A selection from my collection of animation scripts of various authors,most hard to found because never added to the official gimp plugin registry.
Now sorted in 3 group: Animated FX, Animated Logos and
Utils (some of this Utils are very useful when working with many layers)
Scripts are from Fenceposte, Saulgoode, LIMN, Gadget Wizard AKA Scott Mosteller ,Insanity Prevail

3) a plugin to create animated cursor

Do you have a Linux version for GIMP 2.6?

does anyone know a way to fix an error im getting using this program with gimp? i keep receiving "Calling error for procedure 'gimp-drawable-has-alpha':
Procedure 'gimp-drawable-has-alpha' has been called with an invalid ID for argument 'drawable'. Most likely a plug-in is trying to work on a layer that doesn't exist any longer." but i know i'm doing everything else correctly?

Anyone knows if it works with Gimp 2.10? I'm trying to use it but it won't split the videos to frames. Help please
Json1224 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2018
While it still works, many of the indicators have disappeared in the split videos into frames ui, mainly the checkboxes and arrows which is a pain in the ass. I recommend using GIMP 2.8 first to get used to the UI before moving to GIMP 2.10
as updates for GAP aren't coming anything soon, or, in the worst case, ever. 
SuperTbear Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2018
Json1224 you can see the indicators if you change the theme to "system"  go to : edit>preference>theme  and make the change there.

I couldn't get the frames to wok with Gimp 2.10, so now I'm using a VLC to get the frames and it's working ok --->

Is there a mirror ? I cant reach the file.
sunnybunny1199 Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
do you need this to make an animation, or does it just like.. help with it, but you can still make an animation without it? ^^;
Json1224 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2018
I'm 6 months late but better late than never rite?
GAP is not compulsory for GIMP to make .gif animations, however it does help. For my purpose, I use it to turn .mp4 into frames then export to .gif as I'm lazy and can't draw

Is there an actual version for this magnificient piece of software GIMP-GAP? That would be marvelous. And even more spectacular if there was a Windows version of it.
SPIRITRAY76 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2017  Hobbyist Artist

Every thing has been down loaded to the computer and I double click on the GImp Gap icon and I get - failed: unknown file type. And I got it from Deviant too

There is a possibility that it is missing icons or files. Search online for programs that will restore your files.

I have been clicking on the [link] to download the Gimp Animation Package but keep getting the following error message. I have checked the 3 suggestions provided and all seems well at my end. Any suggestions? I've been hoping to be able to create GIF files.

Good, because it seems to have the latest update (2.8.16 from June 13th, 2016 as time of writing), which seems surprisingly hard to track...
Ah, warning, the download is 74 MB, so apparently it is Gimp + GAP, not only GAP. Not what I want, at least.
Looks like 2.8.16 is the version of Gimp, not sure yet there is a 2.8 version of GAP.… advises to use 2.6 on a 2.8 install.

This is awesome ^^ Really helpful! My only problem is getting the audio support to work. I can't seem to figure it out. Is it a plugin? A script? what? Also, I get a reaction when it's in the plugin file, it says it cannot find the files within the folder, yet I have them plain as day. Considering animating is easier with sound within the program, I would really like some help on the matter. I just don't know how to get the audio support to work and I can find nothing on it online....

Thanks for this! I'm going to try it =)
(just for the people confused about the download - it's the green download button at the top right, below your user name and the add to favorites button)
