What clients say about GifGun

Quick questions

How to install GifGun 2?

That's super simple! Just use the aescripts + aeplugins manager app.

How to render with the alpha channel?

We removed the "Keep Alpha" option, so just select any preset that contains Alpha. The built-in "High Quality with Alpha" preset works great for both GIF and WEBM. Remember that MP4 has no alpha channel options.

What are the Target Size feature limitations?

The feature is still experimental. It works cool for MP4 and WEBM. For GIFs it creates 5 versions of the gif that aim to hit the target size. Remember that GIF is not great for compression anyway.

What's up with the Browser tool?

GifGun2 is now also available as a browser app!. You can use it with your existing GifGun 2 license code. The app is completely offline, works in your browser, does no send any user data to a cloud and great when working with NDAs. It's still in beta, so please report any issues.

How do I upgrade from GifGun 1?

If you purchased GifGun 1 after March 1, 2023, you can upgrade for $10 which is the price difference as GifGun 2 is $10 more expensive than GifGun 1. If you purchased GifGun 1 before March 1, 2023 you can upgrade for $20. (Floating licenses additional).
