How to make animated gifs in max/msp?

Hello all.
My goal is to create animated .gif images from movie files on my computer. I am aware of alternatives for creating animated gifs, but I would like to make myself a Max setup for making them. I need to be able to specify the start and enpoints.

I have tried using jit.qt.record and I always receive the error “jit.qt.record: bad codec specified” even though gif is on the list of supported codecs for the object. I have also sending a exportmovie message to the jit.matrix object.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I’m trying to figure this out as well.

I’ve got a simple patch that exports frames from the webcam, I’m guessing an external app is needed to compile them into an animated gif. I’d suggest a combination of automator and graphic converter.

Is there someone who figured it out already?

Use pyext to automate some shell script that takes the jpegs of your image sequence and spurts out a gif.
