Video or Sequence Supported Formats

Hi, I have been playing around with Facer Creator free edition for a while now. I think I am doing pretty well learning and creating faces. One issue I can figure out is how to add a sequence. The problem I have is the format of the video or sequence. I can seem to find out what Facer supports as far as what formats of video it supports. i.e. JPEG, MP3…ect. Any help out there. Thanks, Scott.

OK, so I am able to download a Couple of GIF to my watch face creater OS and apply them to the watch face but no sequence of the GIF shows up. Just the black background.

As far as I know, gif is the only supported format. You should keep them small, and I think there is a 25 frame limit.
If they show up black, then maybe there is an issue with the gifs you are using.

@scttwd Exactly as @ThaMattie has said . You import the Gifs ( Add ) to a Sequence Layer.
I my experience 4 max sequences is sensible. Take care of Memory overload . You can build a Sequence Adding an image at a time . I preferer to use EZGIF or Borrow them .

I will post a couple of examples when I get on my Laptop in a minute.

The Free Bluey runs the sequences Randomly on Wake . This is the easiest way ( On Wake ) To Trigger Sequences as the Timing them ( On Sync ) is difficult to simulate on Creator for some reason .
The Second example has a Timed Sequence every 90 minutes . Check out the Turn Up Layer . Ha Ha . It is all a bit scrappy at the moment I am sure some one like Mattie can help make it a bit Neater .

Note the Special devices for getting Sequences Off Stage as we can not use the Opacity Tag on Sequences ??

Here is another . You might want to look at the work off My friend Gizmo @icrltd4 he has used a few Animations on his Faces .

Any images can be used, up to a maximum of 25, or make your own gifs, editing them to 25 frames each using this site - ezgif.com
