Creating an animation

Creating an animation with Giftedmotion is a simple and straight forward process. First you need the frames, the animation is suppose to consist of. A frame is a single, still image. GiftedMotion can open the following graphics formats: PNG, JPG, BMP and GIF.

To load frames, bring up the "Open" dialog from the "File" menu or from the toolbar. You'll be presented with a file open dialog. Select multiple files by holding either the CTRL or SHIFT key, then click the "Open" button. Alternatively, click the "Open" button, after choosing a directory containing images. The sequence editor should start, displaying all the images, you selected. Make changes as desired to the individual frames.

Preview the animation, using the button in the toolbar. Once you are satisfied, check the export settings and finally save the new animation.
