IFF - Animation formats

Hi Everyone,

Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction of more documentation in regards to Saving IFF animations.

The Brilliance Manual for example says this:

Brilliance can save your animation as either an 0p-5, 0p-8 WORD, or 0p-8 LONG formatted file. Op-5 is supported by many older Amiga software packages. Unless you need compatibility with older Amiga software. we recommend that you save your animation files in one of the Op-8 formats.

I don't for example understand the difference between WORD and LONG formats (advantages/disavantages).

Many thanks in advance

By the way I'm working on some experimental animations using Brilliance II and Lightwave. This animation is 100 frames, 320x256, 32 colours, also documenting the process for anyone interested (will be on my Patreon site)

Thanks Minuous

So Anim-8 is "Anim method 8 is designed for maximum playback speed and acceptable packing rates"
...
Appendix for Anim8
Joe Porkka 10-jan-92

Anim method 8 is designed for maximum playback speed and acceptable packing rates (packing usually not as good as method 5, but more efficient than methods 1 -- 4). In addition, it is easier to convert existing Anim5 code to support Anim8 than Anim7.
