How to Convert Video to GIF?


An animated GIF file allows you to showcase several images in sequence. Since videos are composed of numerous frames, it is possible to convert videos to GIF animations.

Step 1. Input Video

Launch Freemore Video to GIF Converter. Click "Input" button (1) to choose a video file from your computer and click "Open" (2) to activate the "Output Options" window.
