I have been trying to export a video clip as a GIF that will automatically loop when opened with a web browser or uploaded to social media or Youtube. I can't seem to get the loop part of the GIF to work, and I can't find a check box or something that will enable that as an option. I have resorted to just exporting my short video clips as regular video, then uploading to a 3rd party GIF creator online.
Is there a way to create looping GIFs straight out of Premiere? If not, I feel like this should just be a checkbox setting (loop or not loop).
Thank you for your help.
All GIFs should loop by default. Try uploading it to giphy and see if it works. It could just be where you're previewing it that it won't loop.
I thought so, too, but I have not been able to get my Premiere GIFs to loop and I have opened them in several different apps. Giphy has been one of my workarounds. I've exported GIFs from Premiere, upload them to giphy, then download or share from there and that gets the loop working. Thanks for replying.
That's the sort of thing I have been doing. I'd like to be able to just export as a looping GIF straight from Premiere if possible (to save a step). Have you been successful exporting looping GIFs from Premiere? I was just wondering if I am missing something. Thanks again...
I think I did it a little while ago and it worked fine... but it is definitely possible that whatever you used to preview it doesn't loop gifs. Try previewing it in different media players, like text it to yourself or try it on your phone. I don't think your missing anything, though. I'd have to check but, maybe is there a setting in render settings that you can turn on loop? You can check that out.
I tried a variety of programs, encluding two browsers and Youtube. None of them loop the GIFs straight from Premiere, but all loop giphy and other GIF maker-type GIFs just fine. If there is a setting, that is what I'm looking for. I am sure this is a Premiere issue and not a GIF playback issue. Thanks, Jake.
