GIF rendering bug ?

Post by Lychee » Thu Nov 02, 2017 10:40 am

I have a problem with rendering GIF images.
I have an animation of shapes with simple colors (white with black outlines on original background).
But when I make a rendering and whatever GIF option I choose, I don't have my white color that is replaced by the background color.
Before it didn't do this to me, is this a bug?
I specify that I am on Moho 12.3 on PC.

1.Original Colors:

GIF animation render:

Best regards.

Try rendering a frame and clicking "Sample GIF Colors" before exporting.
IF that doesn't work, maybe this tutorial can help you:

I had done exactly as your tutorial shows, but it refuses to work properly.
I made a sample of colors on vector shapes for 4 colors but in rendering the program ignores the white.
Maybe this bug is due to my machine or the file itself, but could someone make a render of it for me to be fixed. Thanks in advance.

So here is the file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wlla71ia4pmag ... .moho?dl=0

Víctor, I think you need to update the "location" in your user profile...

That is weird. I'm not close to the computer now, but will check the file later.

Ok, I checked it. Moho is not considering the white color right now. I don't totally understand the reason, but maybe it's too similar to the background color,
Anyway,if you make the white square twice as bigger as its now and then sample the colors, it will work fine.
Also, it works better with the dithering option disabled.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

Thanks for the tip Victor, visibly it was a problem peculiar to my file.
But it's a pity not to know the real cause of this bug.

Okay, then everyone is in the off topic, it's my turn.

WHAT??? VICTOR + CARTOON SALOON???
Disney can tremble!!! :lol:

GIF format did not support alpha transparency, therefore replace transparent background in your file by white color

Never fear, you have to select transparency in the gif options....
:idea: Look again , there are lots of options, amount of colours, dithering, transparency. :D

I don't think 'any' gifs do , Art boutique, it's a limitation of the format , not Moho.

You might have to think of another delivery format.
