Using GIF files and playing video clips?

Postby TheEmperorOfLulz on Fri Jan 20, 2012 6:42 pm

Hey there lövers,

I've recently started on a new project, and i need it to have a lot of animations. I was wondering; is there a way to draw animations in .gif format, or will i have to use the kind of animation shown in example.love?

Question 2: If i wanted to play cutscenes, is there a way to play them using the LÖVE framework, or will i just have to do without cutscenes or maybe use an external library for doing it?

Thanks:)

There is no support for .gif animations or video files. Sorry.

If you really want to, you can technically build your animation as a .gif and then extract the frames and make a sprite sheet. You could then animate the sheet using AnAL or another animation library.

As thelinx said there is unfortunately no video support. It's one of the many constantly requested things that's probably not going to happen anytime soon.
