(This function is part of SDL_image, a separate library from SDL.)


Load a GIF animation directly.

Header File

Defined in <SDL3_image/SDL_image.h>


IMG_Animation * IMG_LoadGIFAnimation_IO(SDL_IOStream *src);

Function Parameters

SDL_IOStream * src an SDL_IOStream that data will be read from.

Return Value

(IMG_Animation *) Returns a new IMG_Animation, or NULL on error.


If you know you definitely have a GIF image, you can call this function, which will skip SDL_image's file format detection routines. Generally it's better to use the abstract interfaces; also, there is only an SDL_IOStream interface available here.


This function is available since SDL_image 3.0.0.
