Make a GIF from a video
Use Snagit to record a video and then turn the video, or a portion of it, into an animated GIF. If you already have a video, import it and then use Snagit to convert it into a GIF.
Select a portion of the video
Record a video or open one in the Snagit Editor. Drag the red and green playhead handles apart to select the portion of your video you’d like to convert to a GIF.
When finished, click the GIF button to turn the selection into an animated GIF.
Customize production settings and create your GIF
After clicking the GIF button, a dialog appears where you can customize the production settings. In the dialog, choose to create a GIF from the selection or the entire video. Optimize the settings using the dropdown. If you want to fade to black at the end, click the checkbox.
When everything is set, click Create to finish the process. Snagit produces a GIF and displays it in the editor. Now you’re ready to share it with colleagues, friends, or the world!
