What is GIFSyncr?

GIFSyncr is a small program I made, which will let you sync any GIF up to any music of your choice.

What are the requirements for this program/this program doesn't work at all?

You need .NET Framework 4.5 (you probably already have this one) and ImageMagick (when installing, make sure to select "Add application directory to your system path")

How do I use GIFSyncr?

To use GIFSyncr, you must first set or tap BPM (read more below) and then drag the GIF you want to use into the right (source) panel

Importing GIFs

How do I set or tap the BPM?

If you know the BPM of your song, you can enter it into the BPM field

If you don't know your song's BPM, click on the "Tap BPM" button. Then you must click a button to the beat of your music until it turns grey, after which you can exit the BPM tapper

Remember, you might have to click the "Update" button after changing the BPM

Can I drag GIF-s directly from the web into this program?

Yes, you can! Though, it doesn't always work, in case of problems you should download a GIF and then drag the downloaded file into the program

How do I speed up/slow down my GIFs?

Just use the speed slider, note that there's a limit on how fast GIFs are, going against that limit might make your GIF out of sync

How do I save a GIF?

Foxes are small-to-medium-sized, omnivorous mammals belonging to several genera of the family Canidae. Foxes have a flattened skull, upright triangular ears, a pointed, slightly upturned snout, and a long bushy tail. It doesn't even matter what I will write here, nobody will notice, they'll just look at the GIF below.

Saving GIFs

How do I zoom?

Click on the GIF, then either press CTRL and + or -, or hold CTRL down and use your scrollwheel

I got an error

The program has a few bugs, this is just a small experimental thing, so as long as the program is usable, I don't mind a small bug here or there

Huh, the panels act kind of like web browsers

The built-in image viewers display animated GIFs at wrong speeds, I used webbrowser-like things as a workaround

Linux version?

This should work quite well under Wine, once you've installed the Windows version of ImageMagick, but I haven't tried it yet

You made this in .NET, you suck

I agree

How do you pronounce GIF?
