Is there a way to register a hook with evas to be called whenever the canvas is updated? For the purposes of animated GIF making only, one could register something to take a screenshot on every frame.

But then the issue is timing. I suppose you could store alongside each captured screenshot the number of milliseconds that had elapsed from the time of the last screenshot finishing to the time of the hook being run.

Then it's just a simple matter of cropping a bunch of images and using one of the numerous animated GIF creation tools along with the timing data.
