Preview animated GIF

Post by NotNull » Tue Apr 14, 2020 6:55 pm

Just curious:
When previewing an animated gif in Everything's preview pane on a *normal* Windows machine, does it "animate"?

My systems are tweaked too much to ansswer that reliably and I'm too lazy to test it on a clean machine :)
(Just want to know it; either result is fine with me)

Thanks for testing, ovg!

OK, that's enough for me. Thanks for helping me getting this out of my system :)

Everything shows just a static image,the same way as if you try to preview a gif in the preview pane in explorer
I didn't like that so I made an autohotkey script that places a window EXACTLY where the preview appear and at exactly the same size(it's so perfectly over it that it can make you think everything can play gif files :lol: )

:thumbsup:

And also: Screencapture or it didn't happen! :D ( I do believe you, of course; just interested)

No image previews *at all* in Explorer here (that's how I configured it).
FWIW: Everything uses it's own routines for previewing images (and not the default image preview handlers).

Can you share your script? It is interesting (at least for me). :oops:

@vsub: I just realized that creating a screen capture might be a lot of work. Posting the script instead would be fine too

4. Gif animation is not supported yet. I doubt I would add native gif support, ...

It's not a lot of work,it take me 20 seconds
I made the script with some requirements(because I wanted it to work that way)and have few problems but it does work(still work in progress)

PS.In Explorer=>View=>Preview Pane to display the preview in explorer and see that the gifs are also not running there

No animation in Explorer and therefore none in Everything of course.
Animation ok in Total Commander with Imaging plugin or IrfanView.
