What causes "weird" gifs on this site?
Do you know what causes animations on GrabCAD to be "weird". I made a gif of a ring changing colors (Lovely Ring). The gif looks fine, but the mini preview is sort of a disaster.
I've seen similar problems on movement animations, and always assumed it was GrabCAD trying to keep the content centered in the frame.
Looking at great animations from Trinityscsp (https://grabcad.com/trinityscsp/projects) I notice his tiled background, and thought maybe that was a fix so the site would center on the entire image.
As a test I added the white border to my gif, but that obviously did not work.
My gif is saved out of Photoshop if that helps with trouble shooting.
I'll attach the gif to this question and see if it is "weird" here as well.
Give me some good answers, and I promise to hit the "It Worked" button... Unlike some other members ;)
I thought it was a problem of the browser. I tried on different browsers on different computers but still the same results. It is definitely some bug in the GrabCAD viewer. If you notify them you should be to get some solution. I noticed the issue on trinityscsp models too.
I've noticed that on some pages recently as well. It seems to fix itself sometimes, other times it requires a page refresh.
The gif issue is really weird though because it only seems to happen with output from Photoshop. I have not done much testing, but so far Photoscape is exporting animated gifs that don't make GrabCAD go crazy.
