  Hello Jamie,

If you have an O2 it should be easy :

Open MediaConvert and then convert your qt movie as a collection of
images, choose GIF format. You should have all your frames saved as a
gif image. Then use gif-merge (search for it on Internet) and then
simply run this command with your set of images, you can also set a
transparent color for your gif animation. Good luck.



1. Convert GIF anim to IFF anim

Try using the built-in virtual memory of PPaint.
