• Crop your video to only show relevant portions
• Trim away unwanted sections from the start and end
• Resize videos by using built-in presets or by defining custom sizes

• Turn your videos into optimized animated GIFs or PNGs

I can’t speak to the pro offerings in Claquette, only to its animated GIF export, but what it does with GIFs is phenomenal. Claquette produces what everyone wants in a GIF: high quality with small filesize. Several advanced options are provided when exporting, but I haven’t had the need to adjust much of anything — the export quality is fantastic “out of the box”. The one quibble I have is what other users have expressed here: no importing of existing movie/video content. I use multiple apps that can generate motion content, so it’s a bit frustrating to have to physically play the media on-screen to get it into Claquette. But even with the added hassle, the efficient output that Claquette provides makes the effort worthwhile. Highly recommended.

Good app — no audio capture?

I’m able to capture content from my screen to make a screencast losslessly at a selectable framerate—just what I needed.

When capturing content with audio output (videos, for example) the audio being played isn’t captured. Re-aligning audio tracks in post is painful and ideally, unnecessary—did I miss a setting?

I’d also like to be able to do partial screen captures in addition to full-screen captures.

It was 2am... launch email was scheduled to send in 4 hours. A bug with LICEcap was recording blackness. Screenflow's gif exports were $!@t no matter what settings I tried and online sources were saying frame-by-frame Photoshop rendering was the only way to get a truly crisp animated gif. It was dark, and all hope seemed lost. ...and then I found Claquette. Beautifully sharp, optimized gif with default settings, one shot! Best $10 ever. Thank you. Thank you.
