Guys! We need "Favorites" tab here on 80.lv
Cartrdge, the portfolio site for creatives in the video game industry, have just expanded their toolset for game developers by launching their very own GIF player.
GIFs have always been supported on the platform, so what’s changing?
With the launch of the player, Cartrdge GIFs are now embeddable on any website, as well as various social media platforms. They’re also introducing some new tech by converting their GIFs to videos, which drastically reduces file size and increases performance. This means you can embed numerous huge gifs on a web page without worrying about crashing anyone’s browser!
Due to it’s embed capability, the player works on tumblr. This gives you an easy way to get around their 2mb limit. It also works on Facebook and Twitter, and the folks at Cartrdge have made the work flow very easy. Just paste the url of a Cartrdge GIF post, and the GIF will play on either of these platforms. Support will be improved and extended further as feedback comes in.
With this feature, Cartrdge is positioning itself not just as the best portfolio site for the industry, but also as the home for video game GIFs. They support up to 50mb files so that game developers have the flexibility they need to portfolio their work, and with this new feature are extending the reach of that awesome file size. Folks looking to share longer or higher res GIFs can post to Cartrdge, and from there leverage the new player to showcase those GIFs elsewhere on the web. The Cartrdge team builds fantastic portfolio tools for creatives in the industry, and this is one more in the box.
Stay tuned for more from them; we’ve been told there’s another big feature coming in just a couple of weeks!
