PROGRAMS USING THE FILES

  - Personal Paint from version 7.0

MAIN APPLICATION

 - Mainly in conjunction with PPaint's SaveAnimGIf.pprx and 
LoadAnimGif.pprx. But other PPaint rexx scripts can potentially utilize its 
results.

INSTALLATION

  - Copy  'MakeAnnotAnimbrush.pprx' to PPaint:Rexx
  
DESCRIPTION

SHORT: 
ANIMBRUSH PICKUP FROM AN ANIMATION THAT ANNOTATES THE 
ANIMBRUSH SO THAT THE TIME DELAY SETTINGS (and copyright annotation) 
ARE AVAILABLE ON THE ANIMBRUSH FOR USE IN SAVING TO ANIMATED GIFS 
(and other potential applications)
LONG:
When Cloanto added Rexx scripts to PPaint7 that provided the ability to save 
to and load from animated gif format (SaveAnimGif.pprx and  LoadAnimGif.pprx)
it used the approach of saving from an animbrush (since animated gifs are
small). Because the animbrush did not contain information about frame timing,
the user who used varying timing in the source animation had to note this timing
and manually insert it into the settings window presented. In the latest version
(1.4) of SaveAnimGif.pprx, the capacity to automatically apply timing from an
animation that is present, is provided, doing the required conversion from the
1/60" timing units of PPaint animation frames to the 1/100" timing units of
animated gifs. But this approach requires you  do it immediately after picking
up an animbrush while the animation is still present, and it still inserts a
step in which you have to remember where the animbrush pickup started from, how
many you picked up, etc. The ideal situation would be that the animbrush gets
annotated in terms of time delays WHEN IT IS CREATED. This PPaint Rexx script
does that. It is nothing more than a rectangular  animbrush pickup that just
happens to annotate the animbrush with the timing of the frames, so that when
you run SaveAnimGif.pprx on that animbrush, all the  timing information shows up
in the subsequent settings window and the source animation needs not be present.
In addition to the basic action of adding annotations that SaveAnimGif.pprx can
read,  I provided the option of saving the timing in the 1/60" units of PPaint
since they could be useful too when moving an animbrush back into an animation,
for example. Mimicing the animated gif animation, I replaced  'LOOP' loop
'DELAY'  delay1 delay2 delay3 etc. with 'PP7PARAM' param 'DELAY' delay1 delay2
delay3 etc.
where param is a value for some useful parameter  in another
PPaint script.
This also prevents SaveAnimGif from loading 1/60" timing units
by mistake. (untested--I hope it works)

USAGE:
Usage is straightforward. The animbrush is the same as any regular 
animbrush, except that it is annotated with timing information that is 
extractable by Save/LoadAnimGif.pprx. and other potential scripts.
In practice you will create a small animation for saving as an animated gif, on
a page larger than the animated gif (I do it on a large 800x600 screeen so that 
the animation appears the same size as it would on a web page on SVGA), and then
when it runs fine, use MakeAnnotAnimBrush.pprx to pick it up. Once picked up I
can save the annotated animbrush or immediately run SaveAnimGif.pprx and create
the animated gif. If the checkbox is on, the SaveAnimGif script will be run
immediately after pickup. This is convenient for those who want to get the
PPaint animated gif quickly  without stopping.

NOTES
 The latest update (1.4) of SaveAnimGif.pprx and LoadAnimGif.pprx can be 
found in the BIZ/CLOANTO section of Aminet.
