I am always on the look out for bits of video footage I think would make a great animated GIF experiment. I found and made these:
How-to on creating the GIF:
- Found the footage on YouTube.
- Downloaded the video (mp4) to my computer with the Firefox Add-on FlashGot.
- Viewed the downloaded video in VLC media player to find the segment I wanted to use in the animated GIF.
- Noted the time sequence, in seconds, from start to stop, in the video and inputted them, and the video into HandBrake.
- Activated the extraction tool within HandBrake to create a short video (mp4) which was opened in Adobe Photoshop CC.
- Exported the clip into a .gif format with a loop using the "Save-As" procedure.
- Used the following webpage as a guide: Create frame animations.
- Also, used the webpages found from the following search phrase: What is the best Animated GIF settings in Photoshop.
