Best Gif Quality in Flash

[size=24]Best Gif Quality in Flash[/size]


Intro

Hello Folks, I have decided to share with you all how to obtain the greatest animated gif quality from flash.

Here we go.


Step 1- Make the Animation



Get your animation ready. Make sure not to use any Movie Clips with self contained animation for it will be lost in the conversion to an animated gif.

If you plan to use this here at the LL, make the screen size 150 X 150 if you have a premium account or 100 X 100 if you have a regular account.
For the CC you will need 90 X 90.


Step 2- Publish Settings



Now that you have your animation you need to go to Publish Settings under File.



Now uncheck all of the boxes except for gif. This will not effect you if you usually preview your movies by the Test Movie feature. If you do use Publish to preview your movies, simply recheck the .swf box after this tutorial.

Now click the only remaining Gif tab at the top of the box. Now make sure you have all of these statistics...



Dimensions- Match Movie
Playback #1- Animated
Playback #2- Loop continuously
Options #1- Optimize
Options #2- Smooth
Transparent- Opaque (Will auto set to 128 colors most likely)
Dither- None
Palette Type- Adaptive
Max Colors- 99999


Step 3- Publish



Go to File then Publish.



There you have it. Good work

Haha sorry for macroly expanding the borders. A special thanks to Absinthe for the screen shots and to Aubergine for teaching me how to do it.

I usually just export it as a bmp, and then open it all in adobe imageready and make it a .gif. Now this will save me a lot of time, thanks.

When I export, it seems to mess up any gradients or Flash 8 filters I put in, the image doesn't look right.

But at least it can export at correct frame rates.

It's not amazingly advanced for a flash export, but it does it's best.
