Hi again,


I got a lot of response to my previous question, thanks to you all. 

Most of you advised me to use convert (instead of the gimp) to create
animated gifs. The problem this gave is that it turned my 10 test gifs of
< 3 KB into a an animation of several MB's (compression did not seem to
work). With gimp this was not the case (only a limited number of frames
tested of course), that's why I tried using gimp.

I also tried to convert to .mpg with convert, but then quality was not as
it should be (I need very high contrast).

BTW this images have only 5-6 colours at max., with a lot of difference
between the different colours (i.e. white back, black parallel lines with
small travelling red/green/blue/yellow squares).

Any ideas ?
