Classical tools are, for all main platforms available, imagemagick or, faster, graphicsmagick. Both are callable via shell from LC on all desktop platforms.

They easily convert frames from a lot of different image formats to gif (also, for example, multi-page PDFs!). Transparency is one of a bunch of options available for such conversions.

And gifs play easily in LC, even in 'highly experimental' HTML standalones, see for example
(which is essentially Richmond's move-method).
