APNG is shit outside of a handful of very specific circumstances, and tries to make a format for still images into a video format. Just like use lossless video. What you should be upset over is new formats that are better than webp and need exposure not being supported, like FLIF or maybe HEIF.

Here's some of my tests. The original image is 7.07mb uncompressed.

PNG with -9 compression gives me a file that is 371kb in half a second. Using zoplfipng gives 326kb in just under a minute.

FLIF gives me a file that is 159k in just under 5 seconds.

Webp is better than PNG, but not as good as FLIF. It gives a file of 214kb in 1 second when using lossless compression. If I crank up the compression level to max it gets to 203kb in 13.3 seconds.

I would compare HEIF with this, but I can't get it to compile correctly. That or the poor documentation prevents me from using the binary that might be the writer. If I did do it correctly, then the file I got was about 270kb but was near-instant. Not sure if that's lossless or lossy.

tl;dr: FLIF is much better than PNG or Webp and the GIMP should support it.

special formats for animation aren't needed, full stop. there are video formats which are already out there and more efficient.

you can't do that losslessly and win, as you have to deal with nasty color dithering which compresses badly by full color codecs.

you need to find the sources and use them.

once a video goes through GIF compression, it's wasted.

>once a video goes through GIF compression, it's wasted

I have huge folders of gifs saved from random places. The quality can't be fixed. But I can at least save some disk space.

VP9 compresses better with the tradeoff of encode times being much longer. Still doesn't seem worth bothering with, depending how big they are. Disk space is cheap. Most GIFs are better off re-generated from sources or discarded.

Also what tool are you using? Try using standard ffmpeg instead of any frontends. Also note some browsers don't support all pixel formats. Stick to yuv420p if possible.

>>906138

Have you never used an imageboard? Of course it's valid. Less ugly than historic ways too.

No.906145

>>906141

when I was in a similar situation, I just ran

find ~ -name "*.gif" -delete

if you really want to prolong the suffering, you could encode them into VP9.

you'd better disable color subsampling (should be made so by default, but add -pix_fmt yuv444p just in case) and use CRF mode with rf ≥ 30 (-b:v 0 -crf 30) — increase the value after -crf if you think it could be worsened even more.

crf 30 is a good starting point for normal video, but for palette-dithered inputs it could produce too big files, you need to test that.

This one is an ugly hack.

Anyway, this would work with webm as well.

IIRC, 8chan supports yuv444p.

It's not a typo.

Try 444p, only if that doesn't work for you then go down. color subsampling is very bad for quality.

if you use the original, it should be a lot better.

perhaps that anime didn't use a lot of color gradients to begin with, I dunno. then it could give passable results such as what you got.

But if your animation had only that many colors in the first place? Then yes that is lossless, and in such instances GIF almost always produces smaller files than video formats for animation. The reason that formats like GIF and APNG produce smaller files with animation lies in how they compress their information between frames. Animation formats use transparency layers to literally chop out visual information that doesn't change from one frame to the next. There are very few video codecs that use this technique, probably because it is actually rather computationally expensive for a comparatively high-resolution, high-frame video that people actually want to watch for a significant frame of time. This is why animation formats still retain their own niche and probably will continue to for at least another decade. They use a wholly separate compression technique that works well for simple things characteristic of animation but does not translate well to high-resolution, high-color, and extremely low between-frame similarities characteristic of actual video.

The GIF is the source, so any conversions are subject to the limitations of the GIF format. Namely, 256 colors per frame, and per-frame exposure times limited to multiples of 10 milliseconds (meaning you can only obtain 1/# ms = 100 fps, 50 fps, 25 fps, 20 fps, etc). Thankfully the color isn't an issue because the original video source never had that many colors to begin with. So the color is effectively lossless, while 1/6 of all frames were originally excised from the 60fps source. ./gif2apng source GIF -> animated PNG results in nearly a 50% reduction in file size. ffmpeg -i source -vcodec libx264 -crf 0 -preset placebo x264placebo.mp4 As expected, lossless x264 produces roughly 2x the file size of the GIF. If you're curious, I have done lossless tests between x264, x265, VP8, and VP9 before and x264 always seems to produce the smaller file sizes, so this is about the best you're going to get with a video format. >>906170 I also gave this a try, ffmpeg -i source ffv1 -level 3 -coder 1 -context 1 -g 120 final.mkv Unfortunately I can't post this file, because it's 43.2 MB.

The size increase isn't significant anymore, the version incompatibility can destroy your entire system, and you can't install some thing because the libraries needed aren't the version on your system.

Also everything has to be distributed for each fucking distro.

Would it be so hard? Why does no one do that? Why do they use fucking sandboxes like litteral Java niggers?

Also those kinds of things only matter in things like web browsers, image viewers and media players. And if those use outdated libs then they are just shit.

There are also enough software bugs without libraries being at fault.

You can also have outdated software on Linux and bundling homogeneous stuff too prevents bloat in the core system.

Linux program distribution sucks and I can't see why Flatpak or AppImage is any better than bundling directly.

It takes a lot of effort to keep packages stable and relatively secure (by volunteers usually..), and often they are really old versions as far as end users are concerned. This works out for stuff you're not constantly poking at or working with, but for anything that remotely needs to be up to date it sucks shit. Even worse, every significant distro just HAD to have their own incompatible package format and package manager, so theres a lot of redundant effort. A lot of users simply don't care if some program that isn't essential to the OS operating correctly isn't 100% perfectly stable or secure. Why would an application developer want to wait months to years for their packages to show up in some repos? An appimage is sort of a bandage for the real problem, that non-essential programs can cause so much trouble on modern operating systems.

>bundling humongous stuff like qt or gtk for every package

Deadbeef keeps out the extra GNOME deps for their static build despite using GTK, in total the shared object files for GTK come out to about 2.362 MB. In total Deadbeef is about 17.6MB in size. The size problem pretty much levels out in practice anyway: package maintainers decide to add 3-5 dependecies that are not required regularly. I think most modern users prefer the fact that Deadbeef will run on their computer over the space spent, since disk space is pretty cheap now.

The issue of commonly using one library for everything that needs it is obvious: absolutely shit compatibility because it often simply isn't the same software that the devs were targeting.

but until it died there's hardly any good reason to do the replacement.

Mac just uses EFI instead of the more common BIOS to boot but that shouldn't be an issue at all just like things can be BIOS and UEFI bootable at the same time.

May need some extra time but your machine is compatible and if you aren't using anything super private you wish to hide from the NSA you don't have to buy anything new and 10% more shiny.

No, I've even seen the US government use Windows 10 with special group policies but not OSX.

Agencies use things like some Fedora fork but all that mainstream shit like Win and OSX is botnet and they aren't as stupid as to use the botnet they created themselves.

No.912316

>>912215

I don't have space for dual booting and it's pointless anyway because I actually already know how to use GNU/Linux.

The problem is the (one time) burden of installing it, and the "lottery" with drivers (I have no idea if all ports/built-in devices will work as intended, I have various feedback on the Web for my model) and the simple fact that I will need to set up most stuff from scratch and replace some software and I simply don't have time for that.

And you didn't understand my message, I'm not looking to buy more shit either way. I were saying that when (if) my current laptop finally dies, the next one will be not Apple, and then I will be finally forced to switch. And it's unlikely that I will bother switching OS before that (unless the current generation of macOS becomes unsupported while the next one is total shit)

GIMP should be able to replicate the workflow and capabilities of PS with little issue ideally, while also remaining FOSS. You want a complete competitor to Photoshop in this regard to kneecap that capstone of Adobe. With that out of the way, the whole rotted structure of the company is much more vulnerable to attack; Illustrator, Audition and Premiere can't keep them afloat like Photoshop can and has. Even Lightroom, which is incredibly powerful and well used, is facing increasing pressure from RawTherapee and Darktable; Photoshop remains secure however.

And that *should* change. Getting rid of them wouldn't necessarily mean FOSS-only moves in to fill the void to replace it, but pragmatically it means a bunch of smaller outfits fill in the hole along with FOSS solutions, with no subscription pozz to be seen for miles. If think the status que is fine as it is, you're mad.
