Re: Guide to Transparent Animation
I really don't recommend iaza, the images expire after thirty days. Definitely not a reliable host at all.
Microsoft GIF animator lets you make your animations transparent. Its free and distorts the colors very, VERY slightly, but good for anyone that wants to make a quick and/or transparent animation. I still recommend GraphicsGale overall, though. Easy animating...a lot easier. You can work with a canvas that won't stretch out if the pasted image is larger than the existing canvas (i.e.: what Paint does, how it enlarges the canvas like that). Also you can look at each frame on a pixel-level so you can better see any inconsistencies.
But I digress.
