Video to GIF
Convert video to GIF
Converting videos to GIFs is simple, fast and easy with Flixier’s online video editor!
Whether you already have a video you just want to turn into a GIF or if you want to make cuts and edits to it before creating a GIF, our platform lets you do that and more. With our online, free video to GIF converter you can make GIFs out of videos of any format, such as MOV, AVI, MKV or FLV of any resolution. All you need to do is choose what video you want to work on and convert into a GIF first!
Easy, simple conversion
Converting a video into a GIF has never been easier! Our simple interface lets you upload or select videos from our integrated libraries and turn them into GIFs, all with a few clicks. The exporting options are simple and clear as well, to facilitate a smooth and easy work process.
Convert video to GIF in under 3 minutes
Due to our cloud rendering technology, converting a video to GIF can be done in a few minutes. All you need to do is upload, then convert and wait shortly while our platform processes your fresh GIF before you can export and download it.
Turn video into GIF and customize FPS
For smooth playback and fast loading times, it’s recommended that GIFs have under 30 frames per second. When turning a video into a GIF, our video editor lets you choose a frame rate between 10, 20 or 25 FPS. Select one of them, then export and share your new GIF!
Create GIFs from videos of any length
Do you want to turn parts of a long video into GIFs? When creating a GIF from a video using our video editor, you can make cuts and delete segments of the video to only keep the one you want to turn into a GIF.
Click on the blue “Get Started” button to begin. Then, drag and drop a video from your files into Flixier’s video editor, import one from platforms such as Google Drive and YouTube, or browse our video library until you find a video that suits your vision.
If your chosen video is too big, fast, slow or needs some color touch-ups and adjustments, make sure to edit it until it has the length, playback speed and look you want it to.
This is the part that converts your video into a fresh, new GIF. Click on the blue “Export” button in the top right corner of the screen and choose the “GIF” option from the “Save as…” menu. Alternatively, if you want it to have a specific frame rate between 10, 20 or 25 frames per second, go back to the “Projects” page, right click the video you worked on and select “Export video”. Once the new menu opens up, select the “Save as: GIF” option, then choose one of the FPS presets and click the blue “Export Video” button to download your GIF.

I’ve been looking for a solution like Flixier for years. Now that my virtual team and I can edit projects together on the cloud with Flixier, it tripled my company’s video output! Super easy to use and unbelievably quick exports.
My main criteria for an editor was that the interface is familiar and most importantly that the renders were in the cloud and super fast. Flixier more than delivered in both. I've now been using it daily to edit Facebook videos for my 1M follower page.
I'm so relieved I found Flixier. I have a YouTube channel with over 700k subscribers and Flixier allows me to collaborate seamlessly with my team, they can work from any device at any time plus, renders are cloud powered and super super fast on any computer.
