How to make your own gifs : TLDR

by Chance Smith

How I made this gif on my Mac…

Apps needed:

  • Photo Booth
  • iMovie or Final Cut Pro (FCP)
  • GifRocket

Honestly, you only need a video editor, like FCP and iMovie, if you want to be OCD and trim off any parts you don’t want.

How to make it:

  • record a video with Photo Booth
  • click&drag video onto deskstop
  • drag video, from desktop, into FCP
  • trim the length of video
  • in FCP, export to desktop
  • drag edited video into GifRocket

…and done.

Now show me your gif skills!

I’m waiting…
