I'm guessing this is the case actually, no, that's not the case. Animated GIFs are optimized in exactly this way...each frame only contains the parts of the image that actually changed from the previous frame. Wikipedia doesn't go deep into detail, but does mention it here: Some economy of data is possible where a frame need only rewrite a ...


You can create animations in illustrator. Its a bit slow, and the tools aren't really meant for that (but nothing a few scripts can not fix), Here is an example of something i did as test a few weeks ago, it took about 15-20 minutes to make. Image 1: A quick thing I made for fun when I drew a picture for a post on engineering.SE Here us the process I ...


Yes, GIF files can be optimized in that way. This reduces the size of the individual frames, and thus the overall file size. Your image manipulation application might offer this; for example the Animation Optimize filters for GIMP do that: http://docs.gimp.org/2.8/en/plug-in-optimize.html

Then make a copy of the new layer and merge that with the ...

Programs like this allow you to break up each model into individual parts - separate limbs and ...


You seem to be asking more than one question. It might be easier to assemble an animation strip in Photoshop, since it can take the image borders into account. You can generate output images in Illustrator, but trying to create the entire strip may either prove unwieldly, or impossible if you exceed the artboard/canvas limits. Unless you work faster in ...
