Default Latale Gif making thread

Okay to start off you are going to need some software first, what you will need is a recording program like Fraps for example, and VirtualDub. that's about all you will really need.

Now assuming you already know how to record the video and you have the recording you just need to start making the Gif. here is how you turn your videos into gif animations.

1.


First off you want to open the video file on virtual dub and play through the video to make sure it looks right for what you need. Now we have to set the recording time frame. we do this by going to the starting point in the Gif and press "Home" and the ending point of the desired Gif and pressing "End"

2.

If everything looks the way you want then it's time to start by cropping the area you want, you do this by going to Video > Filters.



Now we are just going to add a filter that won't do anything simply to be able to crop the video, so click Add and then Brightness/Contrast and then click OK without tampering with the settings.



Now we can finally crop by clicking the "Cropping" Icon.

3.
A new window should pop up, now you can start cropping the video by pulling the corners and sides together to box in the desired area.



Now some advice I would give would be to use the bar at the bottom to run through the video a few times, you want to have enough space for the skill effects. Don't worry too much about particles but make sure they have enough space to at least be seen at their fading point. And when you are finished click OK on both this window and the filters window.

4.

Now you are ready to export! go to file > Export > Animated gif and add the desired name for the file by clicking the "..." icon, and make sure "Infinite loop" is checked! Now to press OK and let the video export!



Note: It may seem slow when played on the windows picture and fax viewer but will be much faster on an image hosting program like photobucket.

Good luck all!

Quick question: How do you make your gifs so fast? Mine seems to play at the pace of a snail.

Remember that for some odd reason they play slowly on the normal windows image viewer, uploade them in photobucket and watch them in full speed.

:( Super slow. The recording is absolutely smooth and perfect, but when it saves the .GIF, very slow. I've tried multiple saves and ImageShack/Photobucket. The .GIF runs slow on my PC as well as to other people. Any ideas? Using Windows 7.

Didn't look into this but does it have something to do with your number of frames per second ? D:

It's default is 60 FPS, and I set it to 60 FPS manually, but when it saves it, it shows a quick box of something around 30 FPS.

Like this. <- click

EDIT:

Tested with a reduced quality setting to see if it affected performance, and it does not:

For this is it better to just use the VirtualDub or use Fraps?

VirtualDub is the program you need to make the gif. Fraps is the video capture so you can get the video of what you want to make a gif of. So you'll be needing both of them.

Well, I've been having the same problem with converting to GIF until I started toying around with some stuff. I think the problem lies with FPS being used by the GIF. Err... what I mean would be to convert FPS to 1/100 seconds, which GIFs use. Or so says Graphics Gale. Either way, that seemed to work for me.

Thus, I'm taking an extra step to convert from AVI to GIF, with Graphics Gale in the middle to convert FPS to 1/100 seconds.

I'll post a sample up in a sec.

Before changing from FPS to 1/100 seconds:

Spoiler!


Zzzzzzz....

After:

Spoiler!


Full speed.
