AniTuner Review

Tina de Pierre
Create, edit and convert animated cursor files (.ani) for Windows. Freeware
A review of AniTuner by Tina de Pierre

AniTuner is a utility which allows for the creation, editing and conversion of Windows animated cursor files (ANI) with much ease.

This program also includes several new, improved animated icons which serve as a replacement of Windows' standard cursors which to many, are quite boring.

With AniTuner, you can create animated cursors from animated GIF files or even AVI movie files. You can use it to import images from a variety of different image formats, too. Surprisingly, AniTuner also supports Adobe Flash files (SWF)!

Overall, AniTuner is a very easy-to-use program and the overall design isn't too bad to look at either. It includes a wide ranges of different customizations and goes far and beyond what many freeware applications do in terms of features offered.

AniTuner features and highlights:
  • Open and display any animated cursor stored in ANI files
  • Make animated cursors from GIF (animated), video AVI and bitmap strips
  • Import image files (BMP, JPEG, GIF, PNG, Adobe Photoshop PSD, CUR, ICO) to turn them into static cursors or animated cursors
  • Export frames from animated cursors to several image formats
  • Modify existing animated cursors, and change their color depth or size
  • Animated cursorsconvert animated cursors to animated GIF, AVI, bitmap strips or Adobe Flash SWF movies. On this page, all animated GIF files were generated with AniTuner
  • Edit frames, change their duration, modify them in your favorite image editor and save changes back to the animated cursor
  • Perform operations directly on one or several frames like rotation, flip, reverse, or image merging
