Talana animated gif.
« on: August 26, 2012, 05:50:12 am »

Anyone have a complete animated .gif for Talana?  I found one on Samatra.net but it is incomplete.  Is there a way to generate one from the game?

Thanks in advance.

In uqm\content\comm\syreen I am seeing the .png files and it looks like they are called from the .ani file.

Any suggestions on how to stitch it together?

I am assuming that the .ani file is not anything standard and is proprietary to uqm.

Looks like the last two numbers in the lines of the .ani files are offsets.  They are negative, so 0 0 is going to be the top left corner.

doc/devel/aniformat in the source tree contains the description of the .ani file format.
The animations consists of mostly independently moving parts.
How these frames are cycled is determined by the code, in src/uqm/comm/<race>/<race>c.c. Search for AlienAmbientArray.

You may find that there are actually a few unused frames (such as mouths for the Spathi).

There's a few gifs in PoNaF if you know where to look.

Here's the only Talana I found.
