Life is too short for crappy GIFs
A two-pass, high quality video-to-animated-GIF converter script that harnesses
ffmpeg to do the dirty work.
Works on both Linux and macOS.
Setup and usage
- Copy the version you prefer (Python 2.x or Bash) to your computer, and make it executable. For example:
$ chmod a+x giffify.py
- Make sure you have installed
ffmpegand you have it on your
PATH. Easiest way is to use a package manager. On macOS, for example, using Homebrew:
$ brew install ffmpeg
- Then simply use it to convert movies. It can be as simple as:
$ giffify.py my-video.mp4
