## save_animated_gif

Used to create a single PNG image.

generativepy.gif.save_animated_gif(filepath, frames, delay, loop=0)

Parameter Type Description
filepath String The path and filename for the output GIF file. It should end in '.gif'.
frames Sequence A sequence of frames.
delay number The delay between frames, in seconds.
loop int Not currently implemented.

save_animated_gif creates an animated GIF from a sequence of frames.

frames is a sequence of frames, such as the output from the movie.make_frames() function.

The delay is the required delay between frames, in seconds. It is the inverse of the GIF framerate. For example, a value of 0.2 will give 5 frames per second.
