Hello there, my name is Sebastian and I'm from Germany. In first place sorry for my bad english. So... I gotta do a homework for a univerisity, where I want to study "Digital Media - Game and Animation". Today is the last day of the two weeks we had for this homework. Tomorrow I have to bring my results there and a committee is going to check my work. As a part of this homework I made a GIF with 45 frames in Photoshop - Motion. But when I want to save (of course "Save for web") Photoshop tells me, that there isn't enough memory capacity... but it is! Please help me!
Kind regards,
Sebasitan

SaveForWeb needs a lot of RAM to handle animation -- the GIF with all frames is too large for it to allocate the buffers it needs.

If you are running 32 bit addressing, try the 64 bit version instead.

How large is the image?

And are you sure it's 45 frames and not 45 seconds with a higher framerate?

Thanks for the Answer :) It's an animated GIF with 45 frames (0,2 sec per frame). Still got the problem on my computer BUT I've watched the football game at a friend, who has Photoshop as well, and it saved it. So the homework is rescued.
