How to export an animated GIF from After Effects

An investigation into all the different ways to make animated image files.

 

Turns out there is more than one option to create a GIF from After Effects. In this video, I run an example H.264 MP4 video through all the different options I could find. And all the differences within those options. After Effects does not natively create animated GIFs, but Adobe Media Encoder does, so I take a look at those settings.

I also check out Adobe Photoshop's options. And I compare the new Creative Cloud Express online service to Giphy.

Finally, I do look at a way of making GIFs directly in After Effects, using AE Juice.

 

Hopefully by the end of this video, all your questions will be answered - except for why I use all caps for filenames!

 

You can check out a gallery of the GIFs I made on this page:
