Convert MOV to GIF using FFmpeg and ImageMagick

I tried a few different techniques to make a GIF via command-line and the following gives me the best control of quality and size. Once you're all setup, you'll be pumping out GIFs in no time!

Preparation

Install FFmpeg

  • $ brew install ffmpeg [all your options]
    • Example: $ brew install ffmpeg --with-fdk-aac --with-ffplay --with-freetype --with-frei0r --with-libass --with-libvo-aacenc --with-libvorbis --with-libvpx --with-opencore-amr --with-openjpeg --with-opus --with-rtmpdump --with-schroedinger --with-speex --with-theora --with-tools

Install ImageMagick

You can’t perform that action at this time.
