Gif timer adder

World's simplest gif tool

This online utility lets you add a timer to an animated GIF. You can draw a digital clock with GIF's running time anywhere on the frame. The clock can have any resolution (from 20ms to 1sec) and you can change the digit font, size, color, and background color. You can also switch to a countdown timer mode that will run the timer in reverse. Created by GIF experts from team Browserling.

Gif timer adder tool What is a gif timer adder?
This browser-based program draws a digital timer on a GIF animation. It displays the running time of a GIF in seconds or milliseconds. You can choose between two timer modes. The first is the "Frame Delay Timer" mode. This mode simply prints the current time of each frame that's calculated from the original frame delay values (each frame in a GIF has an associated delay that indicates how long a frame should be displayed on the screen). This mode does not change the number of frames of the original GIF. The disadvantage of this timer mode is that if a frame is displayed on the screen for a longer time, then smaller resolution timer values will be skipped. For example, if a GIF has a frame delay of 0.1s (100ms) and the timer accuracy is 50ms, then the first frame will be timestamped at 0.00s and the second at 0.10s. The timer value 0.05s (50ms) will be skipped because there is no frame at 0.05s that could display it. This problem is easily solved with the second – "Uniform Timer" mode. If there is no suitable frame for a timer value, it injects an additional frame in the GIF with this timer value. This mode increases the number of frames in the GIF and achieves accurate timing for any timer interval. The timer precision can be 20ms, 50ms, 100ms, 200ms, 500ms, or 1 second. Additionally, there's an option to enable a countdown timer. In this mode, the timestamps are added in reverse order. The first frame shows the entire running time of a GIF and each subsequent frame decreases this value towards 0.00s. The timer text and format can be set via the format-string parameters "%t" and "%f". These parameters are substituted with the timer value and the current frame number value. You can also mix these parameters with regular text. For example, the string "time: %t sec(s), frame: %f" will give the result "time: 1 sec(s), frame: 4". If you don't use the "%t" and "%f" parameters, then you can simply overlay any text over the GIF. The position of the timer can be set in the options or adjusted directly in the preview field by moving the timer rectangle with the mouse. You can also change the timer font, the size of timer digits, the line-height (in case you use a multi-line timer), and choose a color for the timer and its background. When the timer is added, you can examine individual GIF frames via the "Frozen Timer Mode" option or see the entire animation with a timer on all frames via the "Running Timer Mode" option. You can also find more information about the GIF video in the information section, and you can download the GIF with a timer under the output preview field. Gifabulous!

Add a Digital Timer to a GIF
In this example, we add a seconds counter to a GIF of a blue sand clock. The digital timer shows the elapsed time of the hourglass with an accuracy of 100ms. As the animation is also running at a framerate of 100ms per frame, we use the "Frame Delay Timer" mode that prints the timer at the original speed of the GIF. The timer uses a large, 110-pixel Arial Black font with 40-percent translucent white digits. (Source: Pexels.)

Countdown to Flower Bloom
In this example, we are counting down to the blooming of a cactus flower. We set up a timer with 20ms precision and put it at the bottom of the animation. The original frame delay is 150ms and to get a timer update every 20ms, we switch to the "Uniform Timer" mode. In this mode, the program draws additional frames with a timer every 20ms, increasing the total number of frames to 294. We decorate the timer with three-dot Unicode symbols on the sides and choose the Courier New font of 50px. We use green color for the timer display and a 60% transparent black background for the timer box. (Source: Pexels.)

Add a Frame Counter
In this example, we draw both the frame number and frame time on an animation of a seal laying on the shore. We enter the timer format as a string "frame: %f\ntime: %tsec", where "%f" denotes the current frame number, "%t" denotes the time, "\n" denotes a newline. We use a timer with a precision of one second, which is drawn on all 36 frames. The timer font is Monospace, it has a size of 24 pixels, its color is black, and it's displayed on a transparent background. (Source: Pexels.)
