Some answers have nice animations, for example. I have been looking round meta to get guidance on how to post animations and not found any. Is there a post on how to do this?
Thanks to Szabolcs we now have a nice tutorial. The bit that fooled me for a while is the need to have the full definition of the gif i.e (from below).
Export["~/Desktop/animation.gif", frames, "GIF", AnimationRepetitions -> Infinity, "AnimationDurations" -> 1/20]
I tried without the
AnimationRepetitions-> Infinity and just got two shows.
Further, a minor point but again had me fooled, is to use the image inserter on the toolbar. This puts a complicated reference e.g.
as a placeholder for the video and an even more complicated reference e.g.
at the end of the post. Thanks for all your help. I guess we can't automate this onto the SE Uploader...
