I have wrapped some FFmpeg commandline code into a handy little tool, that allow you to render GIF files directly from inside nuke.

Require FFmpeg 2.6 or later.

Hi Asin!
Did you ever figure out what was causing the
cant find __gif_palette.p ng error?
Im having the same problem

I'm very new to this. I have esentially the same question as Asin, I'm unsure of where to put the hagbarth folder as well as gifwriter.
I added everything to my .nuke file, but on opening nuke it gave an error that gifwriter_ui couldn't be found. I added gifwriter_ui to a folder I named python and added a path to it in the init so I could open Nuke without the error. But the graphic for the gizmo doesn't show and when trying to render, I get an error

GifWriter.Write1: unable to open file

I haven't been able to resolve this. Please Help.

After adding nuke.pluginAddP ath('./hagbarth /python') I was able to get the plugin to load in linux but when I try to render I get an eror:

RuntimeError: No module named 'thread'

It doesn't look like your pyhon is referencing somethign called thread, do you know what this is all about?
