I want to add GIFs


I know there’s a way to make clips, but I think it’s gonna be so much easier to just add in a GIF and automatically be a clip. it’s painful even to separate just 3 frames of a GIF because you need to change it from a tiff to a png or jpg. This was possible in the beta, but so far in the alpha it never made it.

We will definitely be adding this to the alpha! We love this feature too, and think it is a necessity.

I’m not sure when exactly, but it is on our feature list!



How do you make clips? Is there a way to import video or gif format into alpha so that it is inserted as frames? This is my main issue with wick and I would like to not have to pay for Adobe Animate.

You make clips by selecting the thing you want to make into a clip and then on the inspector, press the clip button to make it into a clip. I can’t help with the second thing because I don’t usually work with those things.

We plan on adding GIF import during the next update (1.16). There are a few things we need to figure out first before adding it in!

As far as clips, the “Make Clip” button in the inspector will allow you to make clips, with their own separate timelines as @DylanExists mentioned!



I noticed the program has been updated to 1.16, but I’m unsure how to import gifs. Has it been implemented yet?

I’m assuming it hasn’t been implemented.



Hey @Zucanki! We plan on adding in this feature toward the end of this release cycle. We’ve actually attempted to focus on several bugs that were making Wick Editor difficult to use.
