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.

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.

It works!

It looks good too and even in the standard edition offers fine grained controls to export any video including non-standard sizes which are ideal for play-once website hero images.
