.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 http://www.gimp.org/tutorials/Simple_Animations/ 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.
