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.
