You have three options for creating the GIF: importing the video from another source, recording on screen, and by recording with the default camera.

Import from URL

Enter URL

For the first option, you will just have to click on the ‘importing a video or a link’ ‘open video link’ and you will be able to import the video that is present in your Mac. Thereafter, mention the precise start timer and end timers according to your suitability or resize/ crop the videos.

Set Starting and Ending Point

Click on Save

The navigation system of this application is so lucid that each and every viable option is present right on the top toolbar. Once that is done, just save the Giphy and Lo! You are done!

GIPHY Capture

This application is the one that covers the single backlog of the GIF Brewery 3. In the case of the aforementioned app, the only problem is while inserting the link, the video first downloads and then gets converted – which can be a major hurdle if size of the video is too big. That is the time when GIPHY capture surfaces to save the day.

This application records only the specific part that you want to convert, by overlaying the screen. Now let us know about the working mechanism with intricate detailing.

Load the video that you want to load after opening a browser and then you have to launch the application. Then, you have to adjust and resize the video in accordance with the compatible player and record the same.

It is advisable that you record a bit more than required- since you always have the option to crop it later. Also keep in mind, right after the recording starts, the video will seem faded in comparison to the recording window.

P.S.: It’s a secret! Try using the play/pause button when you are adjusting the application window size; it will make it picture perfect.

Once that is done, open the editing window by double clicking the video. There are a lot of options to choose from, and edit using the tools after minimizing the recording window. In the options, you can mark the starting and the ending; decide on the size of the pixel, the looping technique, the frame rate and a lot more.

After editing has been completed, you can either upload the Giphy directly or save it to your Mac for further use.
