how about .gif files? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a simple and stupid question, it would be nice to have the final cliplet saved in .gif file, when I convert from whatever .wmv or .mp4 in a gif file the final result is less than poor.

    tx for this superb work you are doing

  • Photoshop has the best video->gif covert that I have found. 

    Note gif is not going to maintain all of the color fidelity of the video formats.  You only get 256 colors in a frame with gif vs. 16million colors for video formats.

  • I have used the software and it is very handy and easy to work with.  I do agree that it would be help a lot for an output as a .gif file.  A .gif is much more usable than a WMV or MPEG4.  After I played with my video on Cliplets I took it to my account on Cinegif.com and converted it to an animated gif to use on my email.  Worked great.

  • if the goal of cliplets is neat little little animations then gif is the ideal target output; not heavy movie files.
