    Exclamation gif animation app similiar to imageready


    hi,

    what do you ppl use for gif animations? i'm looking in a product that does stuff like imageready(able to do tweening and motion and stuff) but is faster and more optimizing methods.

    any comments?

    thanks

    I'm not Mr Graphics, but I tend to use Flash for creating occasional animated gifs (it's an export option) - mainly because it's so easy to use, and there's loads of export options for reducing file size etc. An example of an animated gif created in Flash:

    It was for some sort of naff special offer ad for a company I was working for at the time. 28k, not too bad really.

    dang65> I tried flash. the animations were too large and did not offer advanced optimizing methods of other gif animation apps but it was sooo easy, its tempting.

    pippo> yeah, i tried it. didn't like it.

    what else do u guys use?? is fireworks good? or is it just a pretty interface?

    thanks
