I'm wanting to create a gif from a file I made in After Effects. No matter what size I make the video, when I go to save it for the web, the file size jumps up to around 20MB.

 

For example, I imported a .mp4 file that was 1.8MB, but when I saved it for the web and did a ton of setting edits in photoshop to get it smaller, it still exported as an 18.3 MB gif. The same video file that was 5.1 MB exported as a 19.7 MB gif. Is there something I am doing wrong?

MP4 encoding is fare better than GIF enncoding and support Color beter the Gif and auso audio.  GIF is old and only support up to 256 color.  Browsers have MP4 support uset you mp4. Can the Gif.  Gif vs MP4

The thing is I need it to be a gif because I need to to be continuously looping without hitting a play button and it's going to be on a website.
