It would be nice if we had an option to record an animated gif, something similar to Gifferly.
@rkrom first of all thanks for greenshot. I use it every day. I've started hacking something for recording animated gifs.
Basically I'm running a timer inside the MainForm which saves a file every x seconds. Then merge the files into an animated gif once the timer is stopped.
My question: I'm new to contributing, what would be the chances of seeing this in the real greenshot? My understanding is that the Timer needs to be on the MainForm.

I'd appreciate a hint what you'd do/prefer.
