Problems Creating A GIF from MOV File- Solution


"I have hard times with creating a GIF - it doesn't matter how I try to make it, the output is horrific. I've created an animation in Adobe After Effects. Saved as .mov. I tried Photoshop, online video converter, Premiere Pro. Nope, didn't work. Any other idea how I convert .mov to a .gif?"

Steps to convert MOV to GIF with best quality

Step 1: Load source video files

Click Add File to import .mov video you desire to output .gif image onto Borsoft Videomate window.


Step 2: Editing the video(Optional)

Click "Edit" to activate build-in video editor, then go to "Trim" to simply select the start and end times in the progressing bar by moving the points and click "+" to cut the video and press "OK".



1. If you think the video containing the embarrassing background, then you could click "Adjust" > "Crop" to locate your specific portion of your video in output .gif file.

2. If you like, click "Effect", you can apply some color effects like de-interace etc; And "Watermark" to input text you like to show.

Step 3: Select GIF as output format

After the video editing done, back to "Converter" window to choose "GIF" file format from "Format" > "Video" > "GIF".


Tip: If your GIF is too big, you could hit the setting gear icon to optimize the frame rate because your computer may not be able to run everything smoothly at a higher frame rate. Most videos are shot at either 30 or 60 fps, but GIFs are meant to be quicker, smaller, and a little jerky looking. The basic principle here is that, the smaller the framerate, the faster the GIF will take to play and load. 10-15 FPS is usually perfect.

Step 4: Start to convert MOV to GIF

Once you're satisfied, click "Start" to save your MOV video to GIF. Now your .gif file is ready to be used for uploading to Instagram, Imgur, Minus, Dropbox, or any other file hosting service you prefer, or social media posts etc.
