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:
