When I first wrote this tutorial I used Arbor ImageMagick. This method worked at Arbor and all the others. Today 09/22/2006 the only Imagemagick that this method still works with is Net4TV ImageMagick
Correction Mr.C and the Magick Team have this problem fixed. 01/18/2007 is the first I learned of it. Thank You!
The above animated yellow rose image is the end result example from this Tutorial. It is a 2 frame animation = budspark1.gif
Thanks to Nancy Quale for her help working with me on this tutorial. Together uncovering one more bit of "Magick", one wonder at a time.
I took a rose image and an animated star.
I Composite the star over the rose in the south east corner.
Then I Output changing extension from jpg to gif.
Set the Delay at 22
Here is that image. It is 8 frames. 94 k
ImageMagick numbers the frames starting with 0.
As you can see from this "Frame Map ".
I go to Input and paste the ImageMagick
Temporary URL in the slot
I Scroll down & in the text area box labeled
I Type in.
This means I am selecting only frames 4 and 5 out
of the 8 frames of the animation to loop together
I scroll up to the top of the page.
Click the view button to enter the studio.
Once inside the studio
I output right away.
Result is this 2 frame animation.
