1.Make sure the clip is trimmed down to the portion you want to show.
2.Go into RAD Video Tools, select that video clip, click the 'convert a file' tab, and under 'adjust framerate' put in a number at or under 4 frames per second (try to keep the entire video under 20 frames) and then click the dropdown menu that says output file and say GIF. Make sure the width says 500 and the height says 90. Convert. You now have around 20 GIF pictures.
3.Open Microsoft GIF animator. To get this video to play the frames in order, select the last frame of your video clip first, and move from last to first adding frames. Click the 2nd tab, and check the box that says repeat forever. It will require you to tell it how long to make each frame. This is in hundredths of a second. If you said 4 frames per second in RAD, you will say 25 m/s, if you said 3, you will say 33 m/s and so on. Save.
You've made your own GIF movie! Make sure the filesize is small enough for BC!!!
PS you can do the same to make a picture-changing desktop background, just convert each picture into GIF and your screen's resolution and go on from step 3!
