Scrolling and Wraps layer animation Script for GIMP

Post#1 by tim » 14 Feb 2017, 22:53

This script will simply scroll your active/selected layer while wrapping the layer.
So that you can quickly create a horizontal scrolling animation with multiple layers or single layer.

1) Make sure you have the layer you wish to create scrolling animation with selected. And make sure this layer is at least as wide as the image's width (can be wider than image's width).
2) Run script. Enter Scroll x amount.
3) Script will create new image with your animation frames layers.
4) You can rename the animation frames of new image using help of Rename layers script for animated gifs animation Script.
5) Export as animated .gif and you're done.

In this example, we rotated the barbers pole horizontally, animated just the pole inner tube with a layer on top to cover the rest of image, then after animation is created, we rotated whole image back to vertical.

That sounds nifty, Tin. I will try that as soon as I can get back to my computer.
