Take all 24 gifs into adobe premiere all lined out. Then export your sequence through media. The drop-down menu choose animated gif. The click export. That should do it. You can actually do the same through animate but this way you will get less jagged. Give it a shot and let me know if it works for you.

Hi Kevin

"GIF Stands for "Graphics Interchange Format." GIF is an image file format commonly used for images on the web and sprites in software programs. Unlike the JPEG image format, GIFs uses lossless compression that does not degrade the quality of the image. However, GIFs store image data using indexed color, meaning a standard GIF image can include a maximum of 256 colors."

From https://techterms.com/definition/gif

This is also true for Animated GIFs.

There is no Animated PNG format!

What you can do is to export to HTML5 Canvas, set Publish Settings > Image Settings Format to PNG and the Quality high 24/32 bit. It's no Animated GIF but you get the quality you are after.

This is not true. Animated PNG does exist and it's mostly used for Apple stickers.

I have tried to find a way to export an animated PNG directly from Adobe though and it seems you need a third party converter or plugin, as this is not possible directly out of Adobe. If anyone has found a solution in the meantime, I would love to hear from you!

He doesn't want an animated GIF. He wants an animated PNG, so your solution is incorrect. It's a bit pitiful that Adobe Animate doesn't provide an animated PNG export option. Come on Adobe, pull your finger out!!!!
