    DarkPrinnys gif from youtube guide
    (Be warned spellin not to good as are grammer)

    The attachment is the gudie for you to look at at all times

    You will need -

    To make it easyer to understand the hard bit will be in red and easy in blue but other than that its the same
    For the easy way
    Internet connection
    A vid from youtube
    Vixy (to download)
    VLC media player
    The gimp


    The hard way
    All of the above
    Paint (if you dont have this theres something wrong)
    Microsoft gif animator


    There are other ways but ill keep this short and free


    Step one -
    Find a vid

    Step two -
    Download the vid
    Open Vixy and download the vid to a AVI format

    Step three -
    OPen the vid in VLC and get to the section you want the gifisze (Is that a word. if not it belonges to me)Pause at where you want your gif to start and slow VLC down

    Step three -
    Make the window the right size and take a snap shot (the bigger the window the bigger the gif size)
    Now heres where you need fast fingers
    Press space twice (thus unpausein and pausein)
    Take another snap shot
    Do this till your at the end point and you will have a load of screens in what ever folder your VLC saves them in

    Step four -
    Easy mode
    Right click the first frame >>>Open in the gimp
    Now highlight the rest drag and drop into the open gimp window
    Wait for all of them to load up

    Hard mode
    Open the first frame in paint
    Copy into microsoft gif animator
    OPen the next frame in paint
    Copy that into Gif animater
    Do this till all of them are in there


    Step five -
    Easy mode
    Click Save as
    Type in the name with .GIF on the end
    Now another screen will pop up tick the box marked as save as animation then click export
    Now another screen will popup
    Click loop forever if you want it to loop at the end
    Now go to "delay between frames" put in a ammout (7 is good)
    Then click save
    Thats all


    Hard mode
    Highlight click the icon with three squares on it (thius highlightin them all)
    Click the image tab
    Now put in a duration (again 7 is good)
    Save
    and thats it


    End result

    Now I also used paint to edit it thusly

    Hey DarkPrinny, pretty good tut, though I found it easier using Gimp-Gap (if you've ever heard of it).

    I have used it because I have it, but I was trying to say that in my opinion it's easy to use.

    Well GIMP-GAP will open I think about any video format, haven't tested all of them, and can be as big as you want it.

    • i wish there were just 2 products to do this... i used 4

      • convertdirect.com
        • online UI, download YouTube FLV & save to AVI
      • SUPER
        • converts AVI to Animated GIF
        • i chose 320x176, 16:9, 25fps
      • Gimp (not Gimp Gap)
        • cropped image from 320x176 to 320x130
      • MS Gif Animator
        • easy to remove frames
        • easy to se frame timing
        • easy playback preview
    i'll get around to fading the sn in and out, but i spent much time just optimizing the rest and grew tired of how many times i had built this from scratch. i was trying to make this a quick process...

    ideally if i can figure out Gimp Gap... then it would only require
    convertdirect.com as the 2nd program.

    ended up at 1.5mb and about 80 frames

    C&C, please

    Changed:
    [​IMG]

    100% Gimp

    new file (150x95 to crop black boarders)
    imported your file as layers
    saved (during save - animated gif, accept option to crop pic outside of boarders).

    ended up at 1.91MB, 302 frames

    what took so long is that i crashed while uploading... i haven't rebooted for weeks... as usual.

    I tryed usein super to convert it to a gif but the quality is questionable (see the back round on the gif)

    You cant without getin rid of a load of frames

    [​IMG]
    Cut some out
    Got it down to 228 1.08mb
    I could allways get it smaller if you dont mind me earsein a few more frames

    if you scale the animated gif it really messes up the dithering... for kiraownsyourmom's gif, all i really did was crop it.

    now the wario gif is downsized AVI... so the loss of quality was expected.
