If someone could just tell me where to find the info I need, they don't need to tell me themself. I want to make animated gifs of the special crossbow attacks, like i've seen on Wikipedia for the normal special attacks (not sure if they ever got moved to here.) But I don't have a clue where to start. Help...? Vimescarrot 18:37, 28 August 2006 (UTC)

Try searching for Microsoft gif Animator. It's simple and free. After that it's just a matter of getting all the frames you need. I have no idea how to do that. Maybe theres a program that can record something and turn it into a gif?

I have recently discovered that you can use "VieletCam" (there is a free version) to --not only record video footage -- but also can be used to make .gif animations. It is pretty self-explantory after you explore the program a bit. Also, I suppose you could search the Help file (found in File>>Help, on the taskbar of the program) to get specific details on how to create .gif images.

I think I found what you were talking about, but it's called ViewletCam and can be found here. The only problem is, unless we want a big watermark on our gifs, it costs $150. -- Couchpotato99 (talk) (contribs) 06:47, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

-- I haven't noticed a watermark on my videos/gifs. Could you post a .gif that you made so I can try to see what you are talking about?
