How to easily make super smooth and high quality animated GIFs from a video by yourself better than any kinds of GIF automated making tools and websites?
Here is a word we should know first before we get into make a gif and the word is : frame.
So, what is the frame? The films, videos and dynamic pictures we watch are all composed of a number of individual still images within a certain time.These single images are the frames. Each frame has a duration which is presented sequentially, producing the illusion of a moving image.
Today, the most common online videos(including websites online videos, mobile videos sent from our friends, parts of the camera videos, micro videos uploaded by others on cellphone) use the frame rate of 30 frames per second (fps), some downloaded films use 24 fps and somehigh-frame videos of online video websites use 60 fps.
Some criterias you also need to know,
1,one second = 1000 ms, for normal videos in which 30 frames per second play,which means one frame equals 33.333 ms.
2,higher frames a Gif has, better soomther when it plays,and we can make it by using tools like EGA、photoshop、Aodbe After Effects,etc.
