reduce frames
I have a really big gif with way more frames than it needs. How can I cut the frames in half or more?

edit: to clarify. Like removing every other frame.

1) make all layers invisible (shift click the eye icon on any layer)
2) click every other eye icon to make that layer visible
3) Right click any layer and select "Merge visible layers". This will merge all visible layers in one layer that you can then remove.

Of course this makes you animation twice as fast... but for this I wrote a script that sets a new delay on all frames (requries python)

Thank you very much! I was just considering writing my own script. lol
