Re: [ferret_users] how to make animated video


PyFerret saves PNG images instead of GIF, even if you specify GIF as the format.  PNG format does not support animation that was present in GIF format.
At this time I would recommend creating and saving each image of the animation, and then use another program (such as ImageMagick or iMovie) to put the images together to create the animation file.
Search the Ferret archives about this topic as I think there was already quite some discussion in the last year (maybe two) about this topic (saving animations).

Dear Ferret Users,

I want to make an animation(video) in ferret/Pyferret, but I am not able to save as in one file, I tried the following syntax: 

GO setup_movie
GO title ! makes frame_0.gif with a title
REPEAT/L=1:12 GO main_movie `L`
Please let me know If you have any idea about making animation/video in a ferret.
