FUTA - KERRIGAN - QUEEN OF BLADES - MASTURBATION ONCE AGAIN, PICTURE IS A STILL IMAGE TO PREVIEW THE GIF, THE GIF IS THE BLUE LINK BELOW Warning 20MB or so GIF. Any tips to cut down on the filesize is helpful, but I don't think people on this forum really care how big these gif's get? http://a.pomf.se/dzlnjq.gif

I was going to suggest using GIMP - it has an "optimize (for GIF)" filter under the Animation section. But I tried using that on your movie, and it didn't decrease the size any - you're already about as optimized as you can get, techical-wise. You might be able to squeeze more out by reducing framerate or something, but it's not really worth it. Honestly, I think you'd be better off keeping your images smaller. There's really only a third of your image that actually matters. You could add more detail to your pieces (in which case I would recommend using an actual video format - GIF is horribly ill-suited to modern uses, particularly large, detailed images), or cropping it to be smaller.

well im exporting my work in SFM as video AVI, and then i pull the animation into a gif via photoshop Add video frames as layers , and then export as GIF i have a really good 30 second video with kerrigan in it but the file size as a gif would be astronomical. maybe ill use that free video hosting website people are using for it...optimization is killer on these mini projects hehe
