Animated Image To clipboard

Post by sartaros » Thu Jan 23, 2014 9:10 am

Hello!
I do next 2 actions with Windows release of Xnview. Copy Xnview Window with animated Image to clipboard (ctrl+a,ctrl+c).Insert clipboard (ctrl+shift+v).
- The result is disappearance of animation. There is analog of Embarcadero CF_GIF clipboard format?
- >nconvert -clipboard -overwrite -out gif -o Clipboard.gif
means message
Error: This picture cannot be written using this format (D:\Clipboard.gif)
Please, clarify this results.

Best regards

Alex

Where? macrosoft library

Clipboard is just always 24 bpp static image without any fileformat or metadata. WOW.

Try "-colors 256" (but forget animation).

Note that copying GIF animation onto another GIF animation with or without the clipboard would be extremely difficult. I dobt that XN ever will support this.
There is indeed no WinZIP under my rock.
