How to make GIFs of your IRrlicht games?

Postby REDDemon » Thu Apr 06, 2017 7:50 am

I noticed there are lot of online tools with pletora of options for converting videos into GIFs, though is there any free and reliable video capturing tool? These days where social are so trending I think it is cool if everyone could posts GIFs of their irrlicht games.

Since the app is yours, output each frame yourself, guaranteeing no dropped frames unlike recording programs. screenshot() and save as PNG.

Then convert them to gif using imagemagick or program of your choice, and animate + optimize using gifsicle.

probably easiest is to just capture it with gyazo, there may be dropped frames but gifs are usually somewhat lower framerate anyway so you'd want to drop them anyway or they'd run awfully on lower power machines.
Maybe gyazo even has an API for proper integration, who knows... well actually I do, it's right here: https://gyazo.com/api


Or you could output the frames manually and write a gif using them, but that sounds like more work than it's worth.
