Hype about GifGun
Finally, I got GifGun by @extrabitesoft saved me so much time, in one click got a small-size looped GIF and most important without losing the quality.#animation #aftereffects #loop pic.twitter.com/hkCC5tGskD— Harith Ayman (@haymantelling) December 4, 2022
7. GifGun by @extrabitesoft on @aescripts— Philip von Borries (@pvonborries) November 28, 2022
8. Anubis by @battleaxedotco
9. Explode Shape Layers by @zlovatt on @aescripts
10. ExpressEdit by @paultuersley on @aescripts (not the friendliest UI, but absolute lifesaver for expression heavy projects)
Ok, so following up my question from yesterday... I can totally recommend GifGun from @extrabitesoft for After Effects. It perfectly does what I need— Raffaele Picca (@MV_Raffa) November 15, 2022

.@nik_ska gifGun is great! I got so frustrated with exporting movie, opening in PS and the excruciatingly slow GIF export. Thanks!— TRΛPCODΞ (@trapcode_lab)
Got a plugin for After Effects called GifGun that lets you export gifs from animations or video and I'm going gif crazy.— John Hornor (@johnhornor) 12 February 2016

The GIFGun After Effects plug-in is the best thing since sliced bread. Making my day a billion times better/easier— JT Cattelan (@jtcattelan) 2 сентября 2016 г.
In my experience GifGun has absolutely been worth the money, so it's another vote from me— Alex Stanlake (@alexstanlake) 6 июня 2017 г.
Good to know
GIFs tend to get pretty large when you increase duration, resolution, or color count (in any combination). We've added Compression feature to help you keep the size low,
GIF color palette is limited to 256 colors for the whole animation, so the more colors you have, the lower the final result quality. That's why we introduced the Experimental Render feature to help you get the best visual quality. It helps jam more than 256 colors in one GIF, at the cost of the larger file size.
We put a lot of effort to make this GifGun a true One-Click tool and hope you will love it as much as we do.
