I have a prototype in Framer that I am looking to convert to a gif to be able to show the interactions and animations. What is the best way to do it?
I usually create screen captures with Quicktime, but if you need give check out http://www.cockos.com/licecap/
Quicktime can record parts of the screen, open quicktime player, and do file->New screen recording
Cloudapp will do a screen capture in gif or mov.
Yeah scratch all of that and use cloudapp. I didn't know it had that.
Awesome...Thanks a lot for all the input. Super helpful !
cloudapp doesnt seem to be free. Or is it? I am a student and I would prefer a free alternative.LICECap seems great, but is there a way to adjust the frame rate for the gif? I see a title frame option but I am not sure if it is for that
Maybe I'm old skool or something but I'd record using Quicktime screen cap and then drop the clip into After Effects, set FPS to 25 and spit out the frames into a folder. Then open them as an image sequence in Photoshop and save GIF for web with compression as needed.
I think it's free for the first 10 of the day.
Why do you want gifs? Everyone's computer supports <video> now
gifs are actually a terrible format. Very oversized files and low quality
i am trying to make them my portfolio item covers. I just thought it would look a lot dribbble like
LICECap is good for gifs. You can adjust the FPS at the bottom left.
I usually open prototype in Frameless on iPhone and then capture it with QuickTime. Pixels are more sexy than on my Air :)
yeah i guess on ios, you can't autoplay videos so you might need gifs
Michael, you can import .mov-files with PS and adjust the fps there as well. There's absolutely no need to export frames with AE :)
