Export to gif from InDesign - feature request
PLEASE ALLOW EXPORT TO GIF FOR INDESIGN ANIMATIONS.
I can't work out why this feature exists if we can't export it. I design google ads, web banners, EDMs etc in multiple formats with fast turnaround, in IND. But can't export a gif despite animations teasing me with all the cool things it could do.
The best I can do is duplicate a page, flash something or duplicate 18 steps and export as jpg then stack & animate as frames in Photoshop (or create from scratch in Photoshop and use the comet tool, but that can be annoying to try to match perfectly or marry in with the other InDesign formats if designing an EDM) either option adds SO MUCH TIME.
I'm aware of two dodgy ways to do this, one using an extension that isn't Adobe verified and costs more than my adobe suite COMBINED, which is already expensive. The other is to screen record it but that's tedious too, having to perfectly crop the screen recording isn't a great solution for high volume designs or multiple revisions.
I got so excited with the new update toting new format compatibility, alas, this wasn't gif.
