Nice tool. crop and offset must be entered numerically tho.

handy little gif maker.
Add interactive mouse cropping and this is 5 star.
btw, If I hit play and the settings have changed, the app should just regenerate preview and play.
(telling me I need to hit generate preview just to press play again is unfuriating.)

Has potential, but not quite enough to be worth it

It’s so close, and I want to like it more, but you can't play the clip you are cutting the gif from, so if you’re trying to gif out a specific moment from a bigger clip, you end up having to scrub around by chance until you find the right moments to start and stop. You also can’t delete more than one frame at once in editing mode so fine tuning can take a lot of work. If these two things were fixed, though, it would be the ideal program for me. But unfortunately, as is, it’s a big hassle. It creates a more HD gif, but for the extra work, the higer resolution doesn’t pay off for me. You’re better off using one of the free web applications like ezgif…

Lacking One Feature For Me (Probably Not For Thee)

Like everybody, I want apps that do everything I want done--but life doesn't work that way. I need one feature that the program lacks (unless I haven't found a way to implement it. I need a variable frame rate, that is, in some cases I might want certain frames to appear longer than the others. E.g., I might want a title screen to appear for a few seconds but then have the rest of the frames appear for 0.1 seconds. I can't do it with Video GIF Creator. I can in Photoshop. I stress, though, the reader of this review might not need the above capability. If that's the case, consider this a FOUR-star rating instead of three.
