Frame rotation

You can set the output rotation with the setRotation(int) method. This will apply a clockwise rotation to the input GIF frames. Accepted values are 0, 90, 180, 270:

        .setRotation(rotation) // 0, 90, 180, 270
        // ...

Time interpolation

We offer APIs to change the timestamp of each GIF frame. You can pass a TimeInterpolator to the compressor builder to be able to receive the frame timestamp as input, and return a new one as output.

        // ...

As an example, this is the implementation of the default interpolator, called DefaultTimeInterpolator, that will just return the input time unchanged:

public long interpolate(long time) {
    // Receive input time in microseconds and return a possibly different one.
    return time;

It should be obvious that returning invalid times can make the process crash at any point, or at least the compression operation fail.

Video speed

We also offer a special time interpolator called SpeedTimeInterpolator that accepts a float parameter and will modify the video speed.

  • A speed factor equal to 1 will leave speed unchanged
  • A speed factor < 1 will slow the GIF down
  • A speed factor > 1 will accelerate the GIF

This interpolator can be set using setTimeInterpolator(TimeInterpolator), or, as a shorthand, using setSpeed(float):

        .setSpeed(0.5F) // 0.5x
        .setSpeed(1F) // Unchanged
        .setSpeed(2F) // Twice as fast
        // ...
