The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 1.1
WonderFox Video to GIF Converter not only transforms your video files into animated GIFs, but also adds effects to them, allows you to convert selected portions of them, and offers you some basic enhancing features to improve the overall image quality of your source files.
Its intuitive and attractive interface, complete with a built-in video player, makes the entire task simple and rewarding.
AVI, MPEG, MPEG-4, MKV, MOV, and 3GP are among the many video formats supported for the input. The program comes with all the basic features and utilities you will ever need to produce funny, good-quality, light, and short animated GIF files that you can then use as an avatar, or just to share with your friends over the Internet. WonderFox’s tool lets you extract specific portions of your source video, crop it to fit tiny avatars, add funny video effects to make them stand from the rest, and make it as lightweight as needed thanks to its frame rate selector. Do not expect sophisticated video effects, though – black and white, grayscale, inversion, blur, and a few tints are as much you will get, which are usually enough to produce enjoyable animated GIF files.
The beauty of this tool is in its intuitive, easy-to-use, and clear interface, which will allow you to create as many GIF video files as required in barely a few minutes. The conversion speed is good enough, subject to the size of the file to be converted and your system’s performance. Its oversized video player will help you to select just the frames and scenes you wish to convert, and its simple enhancing features will allow you to improve the overall quality of the source files beforehand.
This is not a free tool, but its reasonable price tag makes it a good alternative for those looking for simple, fast, and high-quality video to GIF conversions.
