After saving your preferences you will see a list of most recent .loop files. If this is your first time opening Loopscicle, the list will be empty.
From this page you can check for and download new Loopscicle Updates, open files on disk, start a new project or go back and edit preferences.
When you're ready, click start new project.
To get started lets add source files to the project. source files are represented by a small thumbnail or a folder of thumbnails
and make up the source material used to create animation tracks for display.
(i) Drag source file(s) / folder into the source window.
(ii) Click add to project and from the dropdown menu choose any source you'd like to add.
(iii) Search existing GIFs or STICKERS available on GIPHY.com using the search field.
(iv) Create source files with built in tools like screen recording (that's how we made these gifs), webcam capture or use the plugin based image generator to create rich text, meme-text, shapes, gradients, vignettes, pixel-to-ascii, noise and more.
Drag the thumbnail(s) or folder from the source window onto the timeline or work area to create a track with the selected source.
If this is the first track in the scene you will be prompted to choose to match output render size and frame rate with the new track
Under the palette control you have the option of changing the scene palette. Adjust transparency, dithering, number of colors, load a palette from an existing image or find the best adaptive colors. With color specific remap, ignore and add.
Choose the filetype you'd like to output
[gif, webm, avi, stills]
Each filetype has unique export settings. Settings will often determine quality and filesize of the output.
Choose your output method
[watermarked / unmarked]
To export unmarked files you must purchase a duration-based license available for purchase in-app. This purchase allows indefinite exportings of all file types and for all Loopscicle projects for the duration of the subscription.
watermarked exporting is always FREE to use.
