That might be too big for a GIF, the format is not designed for that, gifs are about 500px wide on average used for short animations of a few seconds long. It's crazy to export a gif in full HD specially if you're going to use it in another program for further editing. The image quality of gifs is terrible with a very restrictive color palette. For best results I'd recommend to export a video in Quicktime MOV format or ProRes 4444 + alpha instead. These are the formats to use for these sort of p

Both generate a high quality output and support transparency.

Just use any online generator to convert it to FLV then open OBS so you can remux it back to MP4. It worked for me.

 

Even if it's already Mp4 follow the instructions above please, sometimes Animated gifs are incorrectly converted to Mp4  when using basic generator programs, but the Remux process in OBS is always sufficent.

I find it best to export as a set of PNG's then take them all into photoshop. Then open a timeline, animate, put them in order on the timeline, and export them out of photoshop as a gif. It will come out cleaner.

Also, the resolution should be 720px max, but I recommend you keep it at 480px.
