It's still in beta but It worked with almost all animation file I've tested.
You just have to drag and drop the SEQ file on the program and it should create the corresponding GIF file.
Available on my website in the Atari Section: http://onorisoft.info/
Atari Falcon 030 14MB // Atari Mega STe 4MB + SD2SCSI 1GB + Pico PSU + Gotek HxC // Atari STe 2MB
The intensity of each color ranges from 0 to 7, where 7 is the maximal brightness a color can have.
Two bytes are required to describe a single color entry, for example:
07 34 (hex) denotes a color with the values 7 red, 3 green and 4 blue.
I noticed that seq2gif.exe is converting SEQ color values like this: (value x 32) + (value x 2).
In the above example the color becomes EE 66 88 (hex).
Since GIF color values ranging from 0 to 255 or 00 to FF (hex), the converted images don't take full advantage of the GIF color space. The converted images are too dark and what was once white on the Atari is now a light gray EE EE EE (hex) in the GIF version.
My proposal is to convert Atari colors like this: round(value x 255 / 7).
With this method the color becomes FF 6D 92 (hex) and the brightest color would be FF FF FF (hex).
Maybe you can consider this in your next update.
