APNG support?

I think APNG suppot woudl be very cool.
Would it be hard to write a simple Python script that creates an APNG file from a set of PNG files? That would be really killer.

Just as important, I was wondering what programs support APNG. It works fine in my Firefox 3, but I also need it in some presentation software (Powerpoint, OpenOffice Impress). Anybody know how that is going?

OK, this works.

But might it be a possible goal for Matplotlib to be able

to assemble these PNGs into an APNG?

Until then, this can be done with a FireFox 3 extension:

Use it and they will come. :wink:

FireFox and Opera currently support APNG.
It is hard to imagine that OpenOffice will not soon support it.
It is hard to imagine that MSOffice will soon support it.

What is really needed is PDF support.

Comment:
depending on your presentation needs,
you might be able to use S5 and FireFox.

Note that there is an reST writer to S5,
which is convenient and cool.
That would allow you to use APNGs in your presentations.
