gif2apng - convert animated GIF to animated PNG files
gif2apng <INPUT *.gif> [<OUTPUT *.png>] [options]
Progrmam converts animated GIF into animated PNG format. Wu64 quantization is
used for true-color files. Transparency is handled either using a threshold,
or composed over chosen background color.
The Animated Portable Network Graphics (APNG) file format is an extension to the
Portable Network Graphics (PNG) specification. It allows for animated PNG
files that work similarly to animated GIF files, while retaining backward
compatibility with non-animated PNG files and adding support for 8-bit
transparency and 24-bit images.
- Keep original palette from GIF and do not optimize it for
