APNG file extension - Animated portable network graphics file
What is apng file? How to open apng files?
File type specification:
Animated portable network graphics (APNG) is an extension of the PNG format, adding support for animated images.
It is intended to be a replacement for simple animated images that have traditionally used the GIF format, while adding support for 24-bit images and 8-bit transparency. APNG is a simpler alternative to MNG, providing a spec suitable for the most common usage of animated images on the Internet. APNG is backwards-compatible with PNG; any PNG decoder should be able to ignore the APNG-specific chunks and display a single image.
