GIF Creation

Below you find a few different ways to create GIFs.


1. Make GIF from Gameplay Footage


Basically record gameplay footage with a screenrecorder first and then convert that video into GIF or a looping HTML5 video.


2. GIF Makers (Screenrecorders)


Record little GIF either directly from game or from gameplay video.

  • GIFcam (Free, Windows)
  • -> GIF Screenrecorder with basic editing features


3. GIF Makers (Editors)


Glue images together into a GIF.

  • EZGIF (Free, Online)
  • -> Upload and edit existing GIFs (Resize, Cropping, Text, Split, Merge…)

  • GIFmaker (Free, Online)
  • -> Upload pics and merge them together into a GIF

  • Mother Effing Animated GIF (Free, Online)

4. VINE for quick 6 sec videos


A Vine is not exactly a GIF but somewhat in the same vein.
