File Converter: Animanatee converter

Animanatee files (Animation00-Animation99.anm) can be turned into .avi files either internally (Start/Save As/Export AVI) or externally through a small command-line executable that takes the Animationxx.anm file as input and outputs an Animationxx.avi file. This .avi file can be uploaded to eg YouTube without any issues.

Animanatee produces an uncompressed AVI file. Open it with Microsoft GIF Animator and save as .gif. Alternatively use "SUPER".

Convert .anm files to .avi from windows

Changelog

  • Preview is now loaded one frame at a time, to reduce memory usage (this was effectively cutting the maximum animation size in half).
