MPEG to Animated GIF?

   Discussion: MPEG to Animated GIF?
Geoff · 16 years, 6 months ago
Anyone out there know a good program for converting a snippet of MPEG to an animated GIF? Google is not my friend in this case....:(
Josh Woodward Back · 16 years, 6 months ago
That sounds like a recipe for a very, very large file. :)
Geoff Back · 16 years, 6 months ago
I'm just talking about a snippet. Like 3 seconds. I used to have a program that would open the MPG, let you set the start point and the end point, and convert that little bit to a GIF. It was shareware too, but damned if I can remember the name.

Which OS btw?

Adobe Imageready does this - creating a layer for each frame :) But you can choose to convert just a selected area of the file or ever nth frame.

Another way would be to use TMPGENC (free version; Win) to save the .mpg as an image sequence. Then you could choose manually the frames to use in your animated GIF.

I know there are tons of software out there because this is what is used to make animated icons.

Quick Time Pro can help (but it must be the paid version)
Along with Paint Shop Pro's animation Shop.
This is what I came up in my search. A bunch of software.

If you are on LiveJournal, there are communites for Paint Shop Pro beginners and Animation Shop.

I know how to change a SWF file into a GIF. There is software for that. :)

That link be broken, yo.

sorry that's the FHDC filter - it gets messed up because of that.

Do a search on MPEG to GIF software and I came up with a bunch of it.

I lurrrves some of mine. Especially my "End of the World" icon. :)

Animated icons ARE evil.

That's why I have them disabled in Firebird.

I haven't seen an animated gif in months.

*breathes a happy sigh*

But mine is so cute.   I'll describe it for Nate and anyone who doesn't allow animated Gifs:

It's Bub (or Bob) from Bubble Bobble, everyone's favourite arcade classic from 1986.  He looks at the post above.. then my post... then the post above..  then my post, and then flails all over with it's hands.   It's really quite fititng.

Whoa, you can disable animated gifs in Firebird? Where do I sign up?
nate... Back · 16 years, 6 months ago
go to about:config

Find image.animation_mode.

Set the value to "none".

And you're good to go!

Can you disable assholes from asking for Freebird at concerts?
Annika Back · 14 years ago
Wow, so like half of my icons don't make any sense to you eh?

Let's you extract frams from an MPEG and save them to gif. It takes a couple of steps, there's a tutorial on the help page of the site
