Hi,

We are trying to replicate a gif image to adobe dynamic server. It's get replicated successfully but when we requesting the image using dynamic media url it's giving a static image (like jpeg) instead of animated image & the format is same(gif).

Is there any parameter we need to add while requesting this image as in case of transparent image we do "fmt=png-alpha" . Is any parameter we need to pass or gif is not supported by dynamic media. i have tried it with "gif-alpha" but unfortunately it doesn't worked. We are using 6.2

Hello Karan,

You need to create the property "dam:dmStatic (boolean)" in the "metadata/ folder" of the asset and set it to true.

Screen Capture attached

This is needs to be done explicitly, since GIFs are considered image content and will otherwise be delivered through /is/image.

After creating the value, change "/is/image" to "is/content"

Thanks,

We are facing a similar problem:

  • Out of the box  for gif images AEM is creating .png rendition and without animation
  • With Dynamic media also the renditions are loosing animation

I am trying your solution but not sure where to find "is/image" property.

Could you please help..

Hello Nirbhays,

Which AEM version are you using?

When you invoke your AEM instance, what run mode you have configured (dynamicmedia or dynamicmedia_scene7)?

Thanks,

Hi Nirbhays,

I will be setting up an AEM 6.4.2 instance with DMS7 configuration (runmode=dynamicmedia_scene7) at my end and will do some research on this.

I will get back to you on this.

Thanks,

Hi Nirbhay,

As I already mentioned, once you have uploaded your Animated GIF image on your AEM instance, you need to create the property "dam:dmStatic (boolean)" in the "metadata node" of the image. (just like the Screen Capture on the post)

You need to use the /crx/de (CRXDE Lite) to access the "metadata node"

Dynamic Renditions will be created with "/is/image" path, once dam:Static property is created, you may replace it with "is/content" to serve the image with Animation.

In case, you are still facing issue, please open a ticket on https://daycare.day.com/home.html or send an email to s7support@adobe.com

@VikramGaur is it still the case for AEM 6.5.8? adding that "dam:dmstatic" for syncing animated gifs to Dynamic Media on the image metadata? 

 

can you point me to any documentation?

Hi Shashi, For AEM 6.5.8, you need to add "dam:dmstatic" properties on the Image's metadata, for animated gifs to Dynamic Media.
There is no documentation for this, but on the post, you will surely find, step by step instructions.
