@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. Hence I was thinking to create a new "Destination" called like "Record Last Region as Animated Gif". Alternatively I could try my hand at a "real" Plugin, but then I'd need a way to set the timer?

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

Below is the current code for the timer:

Any news regarding this? GIF making is a great addition to this already great program.

It looks like @janmechtel has already put a number of the pieces together, I know many users would find this addition very useful!

Yes, like you see a video on facebook and want to crop a short sequence and use it in a chat right away.
