    Demo to gif?

    Hi.

    How can I make a gif out of a demo? When I convert the demo to avi and try to open it in Adobe ImageReady, I get the message that some part of Quicktime is missing. Tried to convert the avi to mpeg and WinMpeg tells me that it can't do that, because there's no audiostream.
    I've seen some gifs that were created from demo movies, so there must be a way.
    Any ideas?

    I use DumpFrames, to capture the Frames, and VirtualDub to Merge the Frames to an AVI, or Jasc Animation Shop to Merge them to a Gif

        if you can convert the avi to an mov file then you cand just open it with imageready and select the portion you want to make into a gif and then save optimized as

            that's the most excellent tip i've heard in months.

            thanks again.

              Actually just hitting F9 at regular intervals works fine for making animated GIFs as well. It's a good idea to keep the framerate low for those things anyway, especially if you plan to use it was an avatar/signature on a forum.

                so F9 would indicate the end of the Gif animation?

                  I meant pressing F9 in-game.
                  F9: Take screenshot.
                  (IIRC anyway)

                    Oooohhh, gotcha.
                    that's gotta be hard to get fluid animation out of though, right?

                      Try this:

                      slomo 0.1 // Slow Motion
                      togglescreenshotmode // Removes the HUD
                      shot // Takes a Screenshot ( It's usally bound to f9, so keep pressing it )
                      togglescreenshotmode // Gets the HUD Back
                      slomo 1 // Stops the Slow Motion

                        After getting each frame, you could use UnFREEz to build your gif. It's a cheesy little program, but it's always gotten the job done for me. (as long as DumpFrames will dump each frame as a gif)


                        EDIT:
                        Oh wait...is 'dumpframes' a command in the Unreal engine? If so, you'd have to convert each screenshot to a gif. :bulb:

                          Not really; you don't need many FPS to get a fluid impression. Especially if you do what eviL<3 said and use slow motion it's probably the easiest method.

                            I'll try it, but DumpFrames Dumps Frames as .BMP's, 'cause that's all EPIC could license :sour:
