Best Answers: How do you make high quality gifs from YouTube videos?
Yes, you can use Elements to make animated gifs but it's a hassle because you have to capture each frame of the video individually - one by one by one by one - then place them by clicking and dragging each one onto its own layer of the project. During my wanderings around the internet over the past couple of years I've found 2 much easier ways to make gifs. One is a handy little program and the other is an option in a video converter. I've used both of them. I think the video converter gives maybe a smidge better quality but they both do a pretty good job. Evan's program comes in 2 "flavors". One for XP/Vista and one for Windows 7. I'd used the XP/Vista version and switched over when I got my W7 machine in March. The 64 bit, W7 version didn't work very well, so I switched back and am using the XP/Vista version on my W7 computer. http://www.evanolds.com/movtogifsimple.h... iWisoft's free video converter does a very good job converting my HD videos. I took a look at some of the other video options a couple of months ago and stumbled onto the fact that it can "convert" video to gif animation. I tried it out and was impressed. http://www.iwisoft.com/videoconverter/ I made this short video for someone who needed to convert videos but I show how to use the program and also where to find the gif animation option. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTNmXUrhY... If you ever have a gif animation that gives you problems in a video editor or won't move after being uploaded to Facebook, Tumblr, etc., you can easily convert it to an AVI video file with Virtual Dub. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omJcuUfqyGY
YOU DON'T NEED ANY DOWNLOADERS OR CONVERTERS. SOME PEOPLE ON YAHOO! ARE ACTUALLY DISGUISED SALESPEOPLE TRYING TO 'SUCKER' YOU INTO BUYING THEIR BOGUS AND UNNECESSARY SOFTWARE. YouTube suggests regular video formats be MPEG4 at 480x360, recorded together with sound in MP3 audio, all at a rate more than 24 frames per second. Other files which are acceptable are AVI, MPG, MOV and WMV, which is Windows Movie Maker. (If anybody suggests 640x480, that was what YouTube recommended in April of last year.) Here is the relevant YouTube reference and full URL address, followed by the direct link: www . google . com / support / youtube / bin / answer . py ? hl = en & answer = 91450 http://www.google.com/support/youtube/bi... If you want your video to be "widescreen" at a 16:9 ratio and with the high-quality option, then please consider all of this: Basically, all digital video recorders (DVR's) function using 720x480 "rectangular" pixels. Computers have lots of different resolutions, but they all utilize "square" pixels. As such, Flash "encoders" can't always compensate or properly adjust for the difference. Just as important, lots of downloaders & converters render uploaded videos "fuzzy-looking" with rather large square pixels that look as if the videos were recorded using 120x90. This is particularly noticeable when there is motion in the video, or during slide show montages when still photos/images segué in between one and another. Thus. keep your videos in their original format as much as is possible. DVR's and Hypercams are not "widescreen", nor does "widescreen" mean high-quality or high-resolution. The only thing "widescreen" really means is a "more rectangular" shape. YouTube accepts file sizes up to 1,024 MB, so it is now much easier to upload larger or HQ/HD (high-quality / high-definition) videos. Everything on YouTube is, by default, "high quality"; so you shouldn't be worrying about what you have to do in order to achieve HQ. If your video is HQ enough, it will be offered on YouTube as high-quality. YouTube's old ideal at the very beginning of summer was 640x480. It seems reasonably close to the 720x480 resolution of the DVR, but YouTube really scales all of their videos "down" to 480x360 (or 640x360 widescreen, which is the new size of the player window). Because the ratio may now also be at 16:9, those types of videos can also be uploaded at 480x270, 640x360, 864x486 or the really massive 1280x720 -- which is really overkill for no practical gain. The best option surely is 640x360. Because the aspect would still be 16:9, you might get higher-quality videos by scaling down to the lower number with a video encoder that's "high-quality", such as a codec that's H.264, Divx, Xvid or MPEG-4. This would then accomplish several results: -- a smaller file (thus faster uploading) -- YouTube also has less to "process" -- you control the final scaling of pixels -- the video gets high-quality encoding. The exact same thing is true is you were to use 480x360 for regular videos because not only would that aspect ratio still be 4:3, the height of the new player is 360 pixels. I hope that my answer helps you somehow.
You can't do "high quality" gif images using photographs or video. If you can show an example of the gifs that are very high quality, I would love to see it, because GIF format only supports 256 colors maximum (regardless of whether it's animated or not, or how high-quality the original source was). Vector-graphics (flat, 2D graphics) will show up as high quality in gif format, but most photos and videos of real-life scenes/subjects are impossible to make high-quality due to the lack of color-depth.

Whatever the camera's manual says is required. Usually a class 6 or faster. Most just get a class 10. The digital bits (zeros and ones) that make up digital video formats don't care about the card and will not cause blurry images. The class rating of the card helps define the speed at which the zeroes and ones can be written to the card - not the quality of the image. This digital camera does not "film" anything. It can capture digital still images and video. There is no film involved so no need to worry about light-proof canisters, sending the exposed film out for chemical processing or any of that stuff. You did not tell us anything about the environment when the video is captured... other than I can guess you are indoors. If the video is blurry, then it is because you need to add light. This can be as simple as a few clamp lights from the hardware store or as complex as 6 or more PAR56 cans mounted to light trees with a dimmer system. Use LOTS of light! What may be OK to your eyes is very differet from how a camera deals with light. The other "problem" is the T5i, while a great camera, is designed to capture digital still images. Video and audio capture are convenience features. This does not mean it can't get great video, it can - but when used properly... Add light... Also, please consider reading the manual. Since your primary use of this dSLR is video, it will be worth reading the manual - specifically, the Movies section... Link to the manual: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/5/0300010905... Start on page 173. The "warnings" are especially interesting... Page 186 tells us about a 4 gig file size limitation, a 29 minute, 59 second duration limitation and automatic shut down when the camera overheats. These are typical for this sort of camera - and not for camcorders. We also don't know what you are editing with (computer hardware) or the video editor. Some of the low-end editors downscale video to a lower resolution while editing so the computer is not slowed to a crawl. Video is VERY computer-resource intensive. CPU, RAM and available start-up hard drive free space all contribute to how well the computer will be able to deal with editing high definition video. This does not mean the final rendered product will be blurry... it may turn out just fine. The SD card will not have any impact on the quality of the video - it will either record the video or not (slow card or counterfeit). I use Sony Class 10 32 gig or 64 gig SDHC cards with 40 mbps or 70 mbps write speeds and they work just fine... Since you asked about the card, check page 31 of the manual... the specs are there - note that there is nothing in the manual that says "quality will be better or worse with card x"...
Edit it in photoshop. You will have a choice for high-quality. All although higher high-quality takes up more room. And you are incorrect. GIFs are used for animation and stuff, and they are able to be very high pleasant when you do it competently.
