The FLIC File Format

Original Documentation

The Flic file format was one of the first graphic animation formats on the PC.
It was developed by <> and used by the Autodesk Animator. It provides relatively
fast animation in 320x200 resolution modes. The FLI use delta updating for
faster animation. The single block information and prefix blocks are missing for
the FLI files, see the FLT format for a discussion.
