I'm trying to create a GIF from a video clip and when I go to export the media using GIF format it exports as a single frame or, with Export as Sequence enabled, all the individual frames.
Here are the settings that I'm using (http://i.imgur.com/hQGpb.png).
Interesting.... I just opened my Premiere and I don't have GIF as an option under format. Are you using CS6 or one earlier?
I *was* able to open a video in Photoshop CS 6 and export an animated GIF from there.
Okay.. well I don't know anything about CS 5. Eveything you have set looks okay (including clicking audio off). Do you have any options under "Preset"?
Oh... just noticed... looks like the gif would over 11 minutes long! I wonder if either you didn't wait long enough or there is a time/file size limit on GIFs.
Also, what are you trying to open your GIF with? When I opened mine it opened as an image stack until I specifically told it to open with Firefox
Okay... well I can do a similar image stack in CS 6 but as a tiff, jpeg or png.
I can't seem to open the image stack in Photoshop (which is beyond bizarre since I can open a video).
Why don't you try outputting the snippet as an mpeg and see if you can open that in Photoshop (assuming you have Photoshop). Then File --> Save for Web
I was hoping that Premiere Pro would be enough to do something as simple as creating a GIF without having to resort to Photoshop.
However, Image Stacking in photoshop and exporting to Web doesn't create a smooth GIF. Probably, because the video is set to export to GIF files a 29.97 FPS and Photoshop doesn't have 29.97 FPS as an option, only 30 FPS (this is from memory from creating one last night and I might be wrong).
I would imagine Premiere considers GIFs to be images rather than videos. For what it's worth, I Googled how to make an animated GIF in Premiere and came up with nothing; just links to how to do it in Photoshop.
The GIF I made in Photoshop had a frame rate of 23.976 and looked pretty smooth. It's too big to upload here. I made that directly from a video, not a frame stack
It says that Premiere Pro CS5 has this capability (http://helpx.adobe.com/media-encoder/using/file-formats-supported-expo rt.html).
