.gif speed differences
I'm working on making a .gif animation in Gimp 2.6, and it seems to work just fine in the preview playback. However, when I export it to .gif and view it, the .gif moves as if each frame is supposed to be displayed for 100ms. Why is this happening?

When I export it as an animation to .gif, I do not check the box that says "use delay entered above for all frames, but the delay still says 100ms. I select "don't care" for frame disposal and use that for all frames. Is there an incorrect setting here?

The correct framerates are as follows:
1000ms x1 frame
10ms x13 frames
50ms x4 frames
1400ms x1 frame
500ms x6 frames
5000ms x1 frame

Side note: I'd rather not have to send someone the file, since I'm assuming it falls under the property of my employer. I can provide screenshots of the settings as requested, though.

RE: .gif speed differences
I'm no expert on animations but the delay is specified in the layer name.

see about half way down

You need something like layerX(1000ms)

Since you already have 30-ish layers prepared you can rename manually. Starting from scratch, bound to be short-cuts.

I did this one by duplicating layers before drawing.
