I have made many of animated GIFs, but this one has me at a loss. The GIF is that of a pirate clapping. I waanted to use the GIF as an overlay on Twitch. The pirate has been clipped so the image has a transparent background. After I saved the GIF for Web I noticed that there is a ghosting/trail effect where-in all the layers are showing up as the GIF progresses. See images attached.

Hi @design_deity 

 

How did you import the frames?

Was "New Layers Visible in all frames" turned on when you added your layers? You'll want unchecked if you are adding layers manually to your timeline. Let us know if that works!

@Chris 486, you are a god! Thank you so very much! I couldn't fix my original file, but recreating didn't take long and it works exactly like I had hoped.
