When I'm exporting a list of images to a gif in Mathematica 9 I've encountered the problem that the colors are not obtained.

The images where made using Show, ParametricPlot3D and Hue as a constant plus some function depending on the two parameters. When I look at the list of images the colors are correct, but when I export it to a gif using Export["path\\filename.gif", list_of_images], it's the brightness that changes instead of the hue. This problem has not been there with former gifs. I've moved to windows 10 recently.

There's a lot of code so I made some random toy example that gives the same problem:

animation = Table[Show[ParametricPlot3D[{Cos[u]*(Sin[R] + Sin[v]), 
  Sin[u]*(Sin[R] + Sin[v]), Cos[v]}, {u, 0, 2*Pi}, {v, 0, 2*Pi}, 
 ColorFunction -> 
  Function[{x, y, z, u, v}, Hue[0.3 - u*Sin[R], 1, 1, 1]], 
 Mesh -> None, Axes -> None], ImageSize -> {400, 400}, 
Boxed -> False], {R, 0, Pi, Pi/20}];

Export["example.gif", animation, AnimationRepetitions -> Infinity, "DisplayDurations" -> .05];

Can someone see where the problem is?

    $\begingroup$ I tried it out on my machine - well I have Mathematica 10.4. It worked. Can you post a link to what results you get and possible what you are expecting. Here is what I am getting after running your code : drive.google.com/open?id=0BwHd5YdfBGISSjRGb0R3b1dHY2c $\endgroup$ – Vahagn Tumanyan Aug 6 '16 at 13:24

    $\begingroup$ @FidRewe Why run an image on a video player? I suggest running gifs on IrfanView. $\endgroup$ – Feyre Aug 6 '16 at 15:21

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the issue it raises is not really a Mathematica issue but an OS and external utility issue. $\endgroup$ – m_goldberg Aug 6 '16 at 22:33
