giffify

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

  1. Copy the version you prefer (Python or Bash) to your computer, and make it executable. For example:
$ chmod a+x giffify.py
  1. Make sure you have installed ffmpeg and you have it on your PATH. Easiest way is to use a package manager. On macOS, for example, using Homebrew:
$ brew install ffmpeg
  1. Then simply use it to convert movies. It can be as simple as:
$ giffify.py my-video.mp4
