    So I have an AVI clip that I want to make into an animated GIF. Only thing is, when I google it, it throws up a TON of information which involve tons of programs. I was wonder what is the recommended one to use?

    A half decent video editor should give you the option of exporting as an animated gif. I use Premiere, so I guess that's my recommendation.

    Yea, its really neat. Bigger files can take a few hours to get to your inbox though. If your not in any rush though, its very convenient.

    If you're on a Mac: (I know, Harskey's not, just FYI)
    Open .avi in Quicktime and "export movie to image sequence" (make a new folder for 'em)
    Open GraphicConverter and use Convert & Modify to save all selected frames to a .gif, using the .gif options to specify timing, loop, etc..
    Done. I'm sure there's a quicker way, but I just tried it and it worked.

    wantque, curious to know, is your premiere warez are not?
    My contribution to this topic: I'm FAIRLY (which means not totally) sure that in macromedia Flash, if you import a movie file, it will be shown as a movie clip with each frame.
    Maybe later i'll look into it.

    I used to cut the scene I wanted out and then ran it through superÂ.
    But http://www.zamzar.com/ looks like a better option.
