AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition


Just extract anywhere on your harddrive where you want it installed.


To run the program just double-click its icon.

Once the program is running select the file you want to convert as "Source",
the file you want to write to as "Destination" and then select the type of
file (picture, sound, animation, or movie) as well as the destination file
format and then click the "Convert" button.

The currently supported destination formats are:
 Type = picture: bmp, gif, ilbm, jpeg, png, tiff
 Type = sound: 8svx, aiff, wav
 Type = animation or movie: anim, cdxl, gifanim

The source format can be anything for which a suitable datatype of the
proper type is available; it doesn't have to be limited to one of the
destination formats listed above.

Source code:

The source code of the program is included under a BSD license.


1.1 (13.1.2015) by Fredrik Wikstrom
 - First released version.

1.2 (13.7.2023) changes by Mike Steed
 - Added the ability to convert animation and movie formats, in support of the
   new GIFANIM v. 54 datatype (ANIM and CDXL formats are supported too,
   but those datatypes are currently unable to save files).
 - Now sets the source type automatically based on the selected source file.
 - Error messages now appear in a requester, rather than in a console window.
 - Now copies the annotation data (if any) from the source to the destination
   during a conversion, if the datatypes involved support this (the GIFANIM
   datatype does).
