Add text to an animation (a gif)
#1
Another look at a question that often comes up.
Adding text to an animation is often a beginners problem.

For three or four layers, text can be added, duplicated and merged layer-by-layer. More that that and there are scripts to automate the process. This demo uses one of those interleave-layers-0.4.py which you can get at ofnuts sourceforge page
https://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-to...s/scripts/

This demo shows
. Ofnuts sourceforge page for the plugin.
. Change the color mode from Indexed to RGB
. Unoptimizing the gif (if required) to make all layers canvas size.
. Adding text and set the text layer to canvas size
. Apply the interleave-layers-0.4.py plug-in
. Optimize the new animation.
