Hi all,

I am looking at this HD video background and trying to see if it is possible to create an animated gif of it.

This is in .mov format (it's not for sale as an animated gif)

Question: How hard is it to change video into an animated gif file. I would need to limit the amount of frames but I'm not sure how I would capture the frames. This is a 15 second stock video background I'm interested in purchasing.

Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks

But the suggestion is that video be only around 4 seconds.

thanks, I think I can trim the length of the clip because I don't need a seamless loop. It can restart once it cycles through. Thanks for the link.
