Set delay between frames separately?
Hello, what I want is to set the frames separately and not globally, as it is provided when saving the GIF image.

So, is there any tool to set the delay between the frames but separately?
e.g. I have two frames, let's say f1 and f2, what I want is a delay 10 secs (10k ms) between the f1 and f2, and then a delay 10 ms between f2 and f1....

It this possible?
Thx in advance

If my memory is good you just have to specify the delay in milliseconds in the layer description. Google for examples and/o the proper syntax (unless someone who knows better posts it here)

RE: Set delay between frames separately?
Technically you don't set the delay between frames, but rather you set how long each frame is displayed before moving on to the next frame. Ofnuts', your memory seems to be just fine. In Gimp each frame is its own layer and you set the frame's duration as part of the layer's name. What you want (if I'm reading it right) is to name the first layer "f1 (10000ms)" and then name the second layer "f2 (10ms)".

Also note that Gimp will play the frames in order from the bottom up as they are displayed in the layer dialog. The name is ignored, so they don't actually have to be "Frame 1", "Frame 2", etc. This means you can change the order of an animation you're working on by simply dragging and dropping the layers without having to rename them.
