Quick gifs

In the last post I showed an animated gif of the of the post source run through sent.

This gif was super easy to make manually, I ran sent on the post source file, then I ran my screenshot tool from dmenu on each slide. I stepped through each slide manually.

For a long presentation, or if I might do this more often I would probably automate this in some way.

I was left with a directory of files call 1.png, 2.png, for each of the slides. I used the convert tool from imagemagick to turn these into an animated gif.

$ convert -delay 100 -loop 0 *.png sent.gif

Animated gifs can be played with the animated tool from imagemagick to see how the delay is working.
