I got 'chu fam! As long as you can record a video - you can make a gif.
Here is what I do, which I recommend to you (all):
Step 1: Record whatever it is you want to show
Step 2 : Edit as needed
Step 3: Export as a video file. What you give is what you get, keep in mind it’s all going to get compressed depending on the settings you’ve made ahead of time.
STEP 4: CONVERT FILE TO .GIF
That’s it! The more CPU you have the better. The Catch being it is Windows only.
(Step 5: Donate to to the person who made this no frills, open source program. It’s stupid simple to use, and it just works. It’s honestly refreshing. I love this thing. )
