Gifine

Gifine is a tool for recording and stitching together a short gifs or videos. It is a GTK application implemented in MoonScript using lgi.

You can either load a directory of frames, or select a region of your desktop to record. After loading some frames, you can scroll through them and trim out what isn't necessary. When you've finalized the video you can export to gif or mp4.

It requires a few external commands to be present to function:

In order to select a record area you need one of the following:

Most of these things should be able to be installed from your package manager

The recorded frames recorded aren't automatically cleaned up. You can find them in your /tmp dir if you want to reload a session. Use the load directory button on the initial screen.
