We'd love to hear any feedback you have, please post it here!

Option to auto-set gif frame rate to comp frame rate

Developer

This one is on the list! Thanks for the suggestion.

Developer

This is implemented in the latest version!

I suggest you are awesome for making my life easier.

Progess bar or % while processing, so I worry less when exporting a particularly heavy gif a few hours before the due date of a tournament round :)

Seconding the progress bar suggestion!

Is a 'save as' option possible?  Just so you can choose the name and location of the output.

It is definitely on the to-do list!

One more vote here for a Mac version. I have no idea what goes into making something like this happen but I really hope it's possible.

All I need to do is buy a Mac. At this point, it would take 200% of what I've earned from GIFsquid to get the cheapest mac that could run After Effects. I am always keeping my eyes peeled for used hardware.

Well I will keep my fingers crossed that you find something. If I win the lottery I'll donate the cost of a Mac to you.

tutorial on how to install Mac or PC and what to do if run into any problems. GifSquid is not working for me, even after going to Edit-Templates-load, etc. I  get a warning sign saying 20 items won't load because each had the same name as one already loaded. I can't find anything else online that shows/talks about installing.

Hi Skorman, I'm sorry to hear you're having issues. First things first, GIFsquid is for Windows only.  It sounds like you got a warning after installing the output module templates, which is normal. Additionally, that is only needed for GIFsquid 0.6, new versions don't render to PNG anymore.

I came across this today and wanted to suggest a feature if it wasn't already.

It would be nice to have a feature to export multiple versions at different quality settings at once. I've used the technique explained in this video [Time code 11:12] in the past making a script with different export settings and running them all.

I love it! This was actually one of the first "potential features" I wrote down during early development. I'll probably revisit that list sometime soon!

I would love an option to create transparent gifs. (AVI is being rendered w/o alpha channel so transperent BG is just black)
