animated GIFs and alpha channel

Hello list,

I have some animated GIFs that display with transparency in a browser
or in Graphicconverter, but refuse to show any alpha in jitter.

I tried converting with Quicktime to animated or no compression, both
with highest quality and color settings, as well as PNG-sequence, but
non of these have an alpha channel in jitter. Only a PNG saved from
Graphicconverter shows up with correct alpha, but I can only export a
single frame.

Anyone knows how I could (batch-)convert files like this to use them
with jitter? Possibly free and on OS X?

thanks, g.

… apparently an application called jitter can do this. D’oh! Didn’t
realize only the outer whites were really 255 255 255 …

Hi Georg,

If you’d like some more sprite rips (several hundred) in GIF form and
as Quicktime movies with alpha, see here:

it took me a long time batch processing them in After Effects but it
was worth it. :)
