Trying to create GIF avatars can sometimes be difficult, especially if you don’t have the proper tools to work with. Video Avatar is one of the apps that make it easy to create GIFs from video files.
While other programs have crowded interfaces where it’s tough to figure out what actions are triggered by each button, this app is different. The UI is easy-to-use and intuitive; the tools found in it cover the basic needs to create animated avatars.
The software supports various input files, such as AVI, ASF, MOV, MP4, MPG, MPEG, WMV, MKV and RMVB.
So, after loading the file, all you need to do is move the selection area over the video. To modify the size, you can input the values for height and width in the respective boxes or drag the corners of the square.
Then, you must slide the start and ending markers to the desired areas and save the file. The avatars are saved as GIF animations.
Another option provided by this software is “Save Picture”, which basically enables you to create static avatars by grabbing the image on the screen. These can be saved as JPG, BMP, GIF, TIFF and PNG.
The app allows you to select a high quality for the image and the number of frames per second; it even lets you reverse the frames. Video Avatar then approximates the size of the file before conversion is even started.
All in all, Video Avatar is a useful tool when you want to create GIFs from video files. The user-friendly interface makes it easy to use even by people with less experience.
