Video GIF Reviews

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Do you like making fun out of your videos? How about editing them to make them look like GIFs? Before I go on, what is a GIF?  VideoGIF from PearlMountain is a lightweight Mac video editor that has a singular purpose -- to create animated GIFs from your favorite videos. Its basic toolset and intuitive controls make it easy to go from video clip to animated gif in a just few short steps.
The app allows you to import a movie (mov, mp4) from your hard drive or webcam and then output a short section of that video as an animated GIF. Controls within the app allow you to crop the video or resize it for optimal output. You also can add a filter for effect and adjust common quality settings like saturation, hue, exposure and more. The video timeline is not zoomable, so you always see the full movie. This can make it difficult to hone in a specific frame, especially in a long video clip. I'd rather see a timeline that is adjustable so you can view a smaller section of the video at a time.
 If you like to make videos then I would reccomend that you check this out and see about getting the app.  I think you will have fun with this one.  

VideoGIF is available in the Mac App Store for US$4.99.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
