Re: [The-Game-Design-Enthusiast] decompose animated gifs into its frames

Got it! So here's a way to do it that won't expire on both Linux and Windows.
Install ImageMagick and use the command:

montage -tile x1 -coalesce animation.gif filmstrip.png

This will take the frames from animation.gif and lay them out side by
side all on one row and store the output as filmstrip.png
