This is a helpful tool for people who would like to play 2D animations onto surfaces as well as binding audio to frame events or playing it in sync alongside it like a video.
In order to use this module, you will most likely need to have a basic understanding of dictionaries, instances, and events
This API is designed to be lightweight and to be fairly easy to use for basic scripters as the GIF object has properties and events like other objects. The most difficult part about using this API is correctly setting the dimensional values for the image. One of the simplest ways is to get the resolution of the spritesheet decal (as uploaded on roblox) and divide the resolution by the row or column count along the axis.
This API comes with an example linked in the library, making it easier to understand. The module also offers step by step instructions on how to import and play these GIFs / videos in games. This module works on both the client and server side, however the client version will have better performance.
My reasoning for releasing this API is so that newer scripters will be able to use animated images without having to write their own players and the player will also automatically sync with audios and other clients since it is based on the time since the animation was played and supports timeposition (Goto) and frame changing (Jump).
