How can I embed an animation from a website?

Recommended Posts

Any clues. I can just about login to Science Forum and have a reasonable knowledge of Word processing and Excel ( enough knowledge to make a Table in Word and change a cell value in Excel).

 

So, my knowledge of using code is very limited.

 

I would really like to present something like this in a post as an animation:

This is Adobe Flash,

you would need to convert it to Anim GIF..

But voice would be lost.

Thank you for that heads up. Is it difficult to do given my limited computer knowledge?

 

Not really. Everybody can learn everything. It's just a matter of willingness.

 

You would need some screen-capture application in video mode,

and being able to save directly in anim-gif.

VirtualDub worked for me on WinXP, but have problems with Win7 (can't capture anymore).

Maybe it's gfx driver issue, and you will have more luck.

I just tried loading static image-sequence from disk and wrote anim-gif without problem.

Thank you. I take it that I need to use a disk with the animation on it. Is there any way to take an animation off a website and then embed it into a post for education purposes?

That was brilliant! Please give me instructions, preferably in bullet points. Wonderful and can be tweaked. Both worked on my computer perfectly. Well done. Please share your method.

I am using the media bbcode on this forum

[media]
http://highered.mheducation.com/sites/dl/free/0072495855/291136/transmission_across_synapse.swf
[/media]

you can also just use the url

http://highered.mheducation.com/sites/dl/free/0072495855/291136/transmission_across_synapse.swf

the html equivalent is

<embed src="http://highered.mheducation.com/sites/dl/free/0072495855/291136/transmission_across_synapse.swf" play="true" loop="true" quality="best" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" pluginspace="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash">
