    Animated GIF export issue

    Zjuka Level 1

      Odd new issue surfaced today - frame animation plays fine when played from timeline but all layers are exported stacked on top of each other for the duration of the whole animation.

      I'm able to see that because the layers have transparency.


      About animation - 8 frames with in endless loop, imported into a timeline via 'Make Frames from Layers' command in a fly-out menu in the Timeliine window.

      Tweens for animation are off, 01.sec delay for all frames


      I was able to export animated GIF before, wondering if this issue is tied to the latest update.

      Anyone else is experiencing this weird issue?


      -thank you

          Care to provide screenshots? How do you check the GIFs?

            Thank you for your reply!



            I check exported GIFs in various browsers and XnView viewer.

            It's definitely not a preview  issue - i have 32Gb of RAM and Nvidia Quadro 4000 GPU on my system.


            I believe the issue is with transparency, because i'm able to export GIFs with solid background just fine

            GIF export dialogue window has 'Transparency' checkbox, so it looks like it should be possible to export an animated GIF with transparent background, but for some reason i'm getting all frames at the same time






            thank you

              Well, you have disabled transparency dithering, have you not? GIF can only have one level of transparency. Everything else must be faked using colors or dithering.
