Hi all, for the past 7 months I've been working non stop on a new app that lets you sync GIFs to music. It plays any GIF at any tempo. It's like Traktor for GIFs.

You can play with it in your browser and download it for Windows / Linux / OSX here:

Thanks for checking it out!

Sounds great! Does the computer version have dual screen support?

You can connect to an external display and it will mirror to a projector or TV or whatever. But are you talking about something different?

Yea he means a mode where you have playback window and the ui in seperate screens

OK so for the iPad, not yet. You can make the controls invisible so when you project they don't show but you can still control it. That being said, dual screen support is coming very soon smile so you'll have the UI on the iPad and playback on the projector.

For the Mac, you can use the keyboard to control it so it's not really necessary. I might do dual screen support eventually but for now you can hit 0 to hide the control UI and just play with the keyboard.

Yeah, you got it, ui on the other screen and playback on other one. This is pretty crucial for my vjing needs, i don't ever want audience to see the ui. If you have tempo and other stuff in the ui, it would be great to see it. Also, seeing what gif is next in line on the other screen etc stuff like that.

I'm gonna start working on it next week, it should be easy to do but who knows  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Awesome!
Totally looks promising on iPad.

Some other features that i think might be cool:
Layers and mixing them, layer mirroring, stop button to stop playback on button down, continue on release. And then of course color controls and layer blending.
You probably knew all this and i don't even know if you want any feedback, just my 3 cents.

Keep up the good work, i'll be watching this thread!

Also, let me know if you need help in testing or whatever.

Oh hey also the OSX version is out now!

OK @KeFF external display support for iPad is coming to the app store eventually:

Linux in the works? This would be perfect on a raspberry pi!

This is a great idea. Any chance you could reduce loading times? Maybe cache them in a different format, something? Thanks for the free app.
