I've created a small animated gif (34 kb) and given it a background layer (I red here you need that) but after using the 'add image' button to get it into the scribe I can't see it.
The animation shows in the timeline and seems to play but it's not visible. Have I imported it incorrectly? Or is there something I'm missing?
Here it is Mike. I did check that all frames were at least 0.1 sec
Thanks Mike... tried the new scribe and it worked fine. My scribe had black paper so I changed that to white and now the gif works fine. Not sure why that makes a difference and a shame seeing as my scribe design looks nicer on black by far.
Thanks for your updates.
When you import a GIF into VideoScribe it has an automatic blend mode which matches the background.
Depending on how your GIF is created you may get the issue you have.
You can change this mode via the properties option (see attached Video).
I have also attached the scribe with the GIF showing on a black background.
No problems Steve, glad to help.
We do have an Instant Answer about GIF's which is helpful when creating GIF's to use in VideoScribe.
I have the same problem, when i try to import my GIF the import button says "Import SVG, GIF, BMP or ZIP"
clicking it will enable me to open up the folder with my image files, but the supported files only has svg, png, jpg, jpe, jpeg, zip as supported files.
So I tried uploading my GIF file on imgur
and used the other option, which is downloading a GIF from the web. But whenever i add this GIF on my existing or a new project, it only gives me the four points of a square smushed together, dragging it bigger will not do anything cause they will get smushed back together, clicking properties to edit animation will not do anything. But you can still add other images, you cant save and you cant exit tho.
this is the gif loaded into videoscribe. Its not transparent, it has a white bg.
I have the same problem
Yes, the ability to import GIFs has been temporarily disabled in the latest release but will be put back in the next version of VS3.
You can download the version 2.3.7 installer files from here if you would like to use the GIF feature.
