After Effects and Gifs are finally reunited!

GifGun is the awesome new tool that finally brought After Effects and Gifs together after a long time apart.

Yes, one-click animated .gif render for Dribbbble, Behance and more – right within After Effects. 


I use gifs on my website to tease my work, and it had become so tedious to go through the whole process. GifGun makes it perfect, right from my project. It's way better looking, and it's like half the size out of Photoshop. Amazing. Thanks!

Version 1.4 is here!

Compression options, render presets and more!

GifGun – one click

The workflow is one-click

We made interface super-slick so it won't take much of your space.

Settings are easy

We believe a properly engineered tool needs no tutorial, so we will just list our features.

GifGun – folder select

Set default gif folder

Ideal for Dropbox or other cloud sync.

Or save into the Project folder

GifGun – resize

Resize gif

Yes, we resize keeping width/height ratio

GifGun – color

Adjust color paletter

256/128 colors for best quality or 64/32 for weight. 8 for fun :-)

GifGun – fps

Set framerate

"as comp" will use composition fps settings. Which is obvious.

GifGun – save file

Save rendered file

We remove the temporary file by default, but if you need it...

GifGun – loop

Choose not to loop GIF

Yeah, some people really ned unlooped GIFs


Yup, these gifs were rendered with GifGun.



Good to know:

IMPORTANT: Please, check "Enable Javascript Debugger" checkbox in Preferences - General. Somehow this checkbox solves most of the problems, we are still investigating.

We are using optimized algorithms, so you are going to get a great image most of the time.

This also means that for movie clips you may get less than ideal results with v1.1.

v1.1 is made with motion graphics in mind, so we experimented with hundreds of motion graphics shots, and optimized algorithms for them.

We put a lot of effort to make this a true One-Click tool and hope you will love it as much as we do already.
