User Reviews

  • Good, but need some serious optimization, tough. I was able to squeeze a 60% speed increase by using unsafe bitmaps and doing some dumb checking, but more could be done.

  • It's ok, but need some tweakings. The binaries work, but it seems that the button "extract frames to bitmap" do not work. The Help Button open a 'ExceptionForm' window. Then, i couldnt build GifComponents under VS2008. (many errors, first one is Error 1 Cryptographic failure while signing assembly 'C:\C#\gifcomponents\GifComponents\obj\x86\Debug\GifComponents.dll' -- 'Error reading key file 'c:\C#\Simon.snk' -- The system cannot find the file specified. ' GifComponents )
