Presenting animated GIFs?

seanglenn's picture

The agency I'm working at has a couple project managers who prefer to proof print outs of animated GIFs that we build. So far, it's been sort of a hassle, spending far too much time on this process (copy merged on each frame, paste into a new document etc).

Does anyone know of a script or action that will do this? Much appreciated.

In Mac OS X you can print every frame of an animated GIF in the Preview app.
ImageReady should also be able create single images from each frame.

I've used both of those features; including using image ready and the Contact Sheet II action to build pages, but what I'm really looking for is an all-up way to present all the frames on one page.

I do not miss the ad agency world.

I remember PRINTING out web sites to fedex to the client, to proof. Ugh!

The heights was a recent national-level design awards out here where the entire entries/judging process for the 'web and interactive' category was based on printouts!

Sticking to non-obsolete applications, Fireworks can do that as well.

Yeah I work in interactive and generally print out all my work to present internally. Honestly it's easier than building it first and then having to go back and change things. And I like that I can make notes right on the print outs.

I haven't found a quick way to make one page spreads of banner gifs. I just memorized the proper key commands and copy pasta all my stuff into photoshop for printing..

I use the image ready multi picture contact sheet function sometimes, but it isn't very pretty.

That's basically the problem that I'm running into. It either takes too much time or looks ugly.
