Does anyone know about or where to find out about dynamically creating and saving gifs with PHP ?

Here's the deal, I have a flash interface and I want to pass vector information to the server to be turned into a gif and saved so that another page can use that image right away.

Beware of licence issues generating gif's dynamically. PHP does have an entire library but they don't recommend using it for the reason mentioned above.

Maybe look at devshed.com and do a search there
