Do you like ASCII codes? Well, I can’t when it appears in my text to spoil my reading. ASCII animation can be fun though! I remember when I saw the first ASCII animation online, I was amazed. If you would like to have fun with ASCII animated images, ASCII Animator is a GUI tool that can do that job for you as long as you have a GIF image/animation in hand.
ASCII Animator is unique, funny and free software to convert GIF image/animation to an ASCII art GIF image/animation.
ASCII Animator extracts a GIF image into frames, then converts each frame to an ASCII art, and encodes the ASCII art into a new animated ASCII art GIF image. The conversion can be accomplished in 4 steps:
ASCII Animator needs Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or later; therefore, if you don’t like that, you cannot use this program. This software uses ~ 5 MB of RAM when idle but the usage of RAM may vary depending on the output format (colored GIF output takes more). Take a look at one sample conversion:
I unreservedly recommend this software to anyone who wants to enjoy ASCII images, ‘specially the animated ones. Just chill!
