I have N tiff files. In linux I can do convert -delay 0 -loop 0 *.tiff output.gif

In linux, using gm animate *.tif I get a nice smooth rotation at a nice speed. And if I recreate N tiff files to have 2N files the rotation slows but is still good, what one would expect. Basically 180, 360, 720, or 1440 total files making up one revolution.

In powerpoint the animation is horrible.

Is there a way to use convert to make the animated gif display acceptably in windows [powerpoint] ?

Is there a better way to display a simple 800x600 or 1920x1080 animation in Windows?

  • Is it Powerpoint per se, or the extra load of that app plus the video output overloading a PC? Try that PPT on another, faster PC with video card. Jul 19 '19 at 17:07
  • Not sure what qualifies as "horrible" but perhaps try -delay 1? Alternately, you could just export the animation as video and loop it in PowerPoint itself. Jul 20 '19 at 21:30
  • pc has quadro P1000 card, win10, nothing else running; displayed in internet explorer the animated gif does half a rotation then gets slower to where it does 0.5° rotation every 2 seconds; powerpoint not as bad but choppy and slow
