News nybble: Find out how to create animated GIFs on thanks to Richard Ashbery

The Simple Graphics Programming in RISC OS BASIC website set up by Richard Ashbery now includes a useful tutorial for people who want to make animated graphics using RISC OS.

The newly added tutorial doesn’t cover the entire process, but does demonstrate how to produce, from within a graphics program, the individual frames that would be used for the eventual animated GIF. The final part of the process, mentioned but not covered, would then be to use InterGIF to turn those sprites into a single animated GIF. Three additional animated GIFs, generated using parametric equations, can also be found in the animated patterns section.
