    Smile Pictures to Gif/Video?

    Hi there.
    My Question is the following:
    Is there a possibilty in pys60 to create an animated gif (I know you can't display those, but perhaps create ?) or Video out of Pictures?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Basically the answer is no for both cases. You can find an (unofficial) explanation for not being able to create GIF images here.

    Hmph, since that thread contained a lot from me and ended in void, I feel like I should answer here something. My answer would be yes for both cases

    At least Web Browser was able to show animated GIF - once. If PyS60 would be using same routines (MMF?), then the result should be same. However I don't have any animated GIFs available and unfortunately don't know whether PyS60 uses MMF or not... Someone might test and report whether first round was visible or not?

    You can create animated GIF using PyS60, if you really want to. The only way I know right now is to open a new file in binary format and start filling it bit/byte at a time in correct GIF format. Lots of work, but possible. If you really really want to create animated GIFs in PyS60. Just wondering where would you get GIFs in the first place. Open JPG/PNG and convert it pixel by pixel into animated GIF format would be... an interesting challenge.

    Cheers,
