    Well, give animated gifs a try again.


    New feature: Autosizing of animated gifs
    Fixes: Errors, crashes .etc. , fixed


    So , lets see


    here is a gif i found
    [​IMG]


    The gif effect now autosizes it to fit whatever target you are using

    and here is what it looks like on my matrix

    Another example, here is original gif
    [​IMG]
    the autosized gif

    and what it looks like on my matrix


    [​IMG]


    and same effect on my megatree
    [​IMG]




    and one more, this shows how a large animated gif is sized down correctly

    Now, what still doesnt work. This has never worked right. Some gif's are optimized. When this happens they shift some frames and provide a offset_left and offset_top.
    I still dont have these working correctly.


    Here is an example, notice the jitter that is not there in the original gif.
