Exporting GIF Sequences and Animated GIFs

You can export GIF sequences and animated GIFs from Premiere as you would any other image format, except that additional options are available.

To specify settings for animated GIFs and GIF sequences:

1.
In the General panel of the Export Movie Settings dialog box, choose Animated GIF or GIF Sequence from the File Type pull-down menu.

The Advanced Settings button becomes available for use.

2.
Click Advanced Settings (Figure 15.22).

Figure 15.22. In the General panel of the Export Movie Settings dialog box, click Advanced Settings.

3.
To simulate colors that are not available in the Web-safe color palette by dithering (or mixing) pixels of available colors, click the Dithering check box.

Although dithered colors look grainy, they can expand the limited color palette and improve color gradients. When Dithering is unchecked, unavailable colors are replaced with the next-closest color.

4.
From the Transparency pull-down menu, choose one of the following options (Figure 15.24):

None— exports the animated GIF or GIF sequence as opaque.

Hard— makes one color in the image transparent.

Soft— makes one color in the image transparent with soft edges.

Click Color to open the color picker and choose the color that becomes transparent.

5.
To make an animated GIF play continuously, click the Looping check box.

Leave this option unchecked to make the animated GIF play once, then stop.
