ScreenToGif would be even better, if it was not for its unwieldy Net Framework 4.6.1 addiction
(2.5 GB of available hard disk space required).

For me, I'll stick with leaner, self-contained GifCam instead, thank you.

The editor for this program just gets better and better. I've really enjoyed seeing it's progress over time.

Works OK for me. Unpacked, installed, ran it. Tried it with a few pictures -- it converted them to AVI video. Please note that the best results are obtained with pictures of moderate sizes, e.g. 640x480 pixels (most digital cameras will produce much larger pictures, which may cause the codec or this software to malfunction -- in my case it did not cope very well with 5 megapixel pictures). I used another portable freeware to convert all pictures to 640x480 (this was Irfan View, also known as I_VIEW). Hope it will work for you too. Excellent small program.

I had the same problem as Local...installing it normally it works, but try to move it to another directory and no go...is this app really portable (using v1.05)?

Ben on 2008-03-14 16:16

Very strange...it seems to not run if an Explorer Window for the program folder is open...create a shortcut, place it somewhere else, close the open program folder, then run the shortcut, and all's well...?

Few minor bugs were fixed and the installer was improved.

Improvements since v2.1:

Gif optimization options are all selected by default.

Piv files are loaded faster since the timeline frames are re-drawn faster.

There are 2 new buttons to move the current figure in front or behind the other figures. This is useful when there are multiple figures with different colours.

Piv and Stk files can now be opened by dragging them over the pivot.exe icon or double clicking on them. See below for how to associate the files with pivot.
