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.
http://www.uniquetracks.com/sci-fi-machine-rotating.html

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

Gina

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.
