Do you have GAP (Gimp Animation Package) installed? Because if you don't, you ain't gonna see a video menu entry. Install it (if you downloaded Gimp from sourceforge, there is a download link for GAP there as well), and re-start Gimp and you should see the Video entry, right there next to Script-Fu.

A bit more information would be helpful. What is the exact error message? Does it do it when you try to start the move path, or after you have set up your move path and click okay? Is it perhaps telling you that you don't have the amount of frames needed? I have run into that error a time or two when I miscalculated how many frames I had.

those are the 2 errors...then when i try it again, it says "move path cannot execute more than 1 video function on the same frame at the same time. Locking Image_id:1"
all im really trying to do is speed up the motion of an image, and once it reaches the end, make it play backwards...like running forward, then running backwards and then forwards again in a loop then reversal loop.
Im also trying to do things like the spiderman sig on the first page of this thread....if you could please take me under your gimp teaching wings, i would be much obliged...

You should first open your file, then probably save it back out under a different name, since it might be getting confused by the fact that you have given it a "video frame" name, i.e. with the _000001.xcf. It isn't a video frame, it is the full video!
Name it something like "video.xcf", and put it in a folder all by itself.
Now do Video>Split Image to Frames. This will generate 51 separate .xcf files in that folder, each one will be a different frame of video. It should make a new image called frame_000001.xcf with JUST the very first frame of the animation.
Now, in that frame, do Video>Frames to Image, and change the timing value to 15 (the timing value is in an input box at the top of the dialog). This will generate a new multi layer image with the timings changed. Save that one out as an .xcf with whatever filename you want.
Now, from that same multi-Layer Image, Do File>Save a Copy and save as .gif. Check the box for animation. In the new dialog that comes up, you can probably get away with just clicking Okay, but if you want to be fussy, change the mode from "I don't Care" to "Replace."

If you can help me to solve that problem...
I saw your image... it looks like the yellow square is transitioning out of the image before it reaches the end. I'm not sure about what to do, but I understand the issue.
pixkid@macmini~$ open -a Gimp.app bash: you want fries with that pixkid@macmini~$ echo No thank you, I am on a diet. bash: you make me feel unloved with your excuses pixkid@macmini~$ echo What? Are you insinuating that I do not eat your food? When did shells ever execute commands relevant to cooking? bash: shells duh ever think of seafood pixkid@macmini~$ echo No fair, stop searching puns, you have Lynx and Google to use! bash: ugh you humans are so annoying bash: logout [Process completed]

Say I have sprites, like these
And I want to use the 3 in the top right, labelled sideways. Say I want the infantry marching across the screen like the box. The problem is, your tutorial shows what to do when you want to move a single image, not four images in succession.
Is there a tutorial to show me that or can you tell me here?
Thanks for the help

[EDITED] I uploaded my bad moving box, but it doesn't seem. Would somebody explain or give me a link, how to upload images in this forum?
[EDITED again] Ooops, I did it again. Now I have a moving box, maybe because I hade white background to the second image, and first time it was transparent I think it would be better to mention in the tut that it must be white background.
But now I have black moving box, even the screen around the background is black and the background is white. Why?
Another problem: When I open the video>path, the source image/layer shows as Untitled of course and not a .png as on the illustration, because you don't say anywhere to save something as .png image. It is disturbing, it took time to check if I did something wrong. No, I didn't untill there. But I did somewhere else, because I have no colors.
ps. Would somebody explain or give me a link, how to upload images in this forum? (To push the upload was not enough)
