how can I import the gif format image?

  • I've tried to import a gif image into C2, but there are not any dynamic effects showing up ... Why?

  • You need to import frames rather than the full image.

    At the bottom of the animation editor the animation frames are laid out. Right-click an empty space and click on Import Frames.

    Thanks a lot, I know import frames must work, but are you sure that can't import the full gif image in C2? [:P]

  • Well you can; doing it this way is how it's done. It's just that you can't import the full frames of a GIF by clicking the "Load an image from a file" button as that seems to only import single frames.

    I have no idea why it's done this way - seems a little unobvious to me - but that just seems to be how it goes.

    thanks for replying me so patiently GeometriX [:P]

  • You can drag and drop a .gif straight from Windows in to the layout and it should create a sprite with the gif animation as frames. To be honest though, GIF is an old 90s format and you should avoid using it! PNG is much better.
