    Been on the hunt for a program that would work well for GIF editing. Ideally, I'd be able to do most of the standard adjustments such as resizing, frame speed/adjustment, etc. The most important part though is being able to export it as a lossless GIF into a single file (so compression options would be an absolute requirement). For bonus points, it would provide a variety of typical video editing components, such as layer management (making of multiple overlays), and rudimentary timeline editing capabilities.

    Does anybody have any suggestions? Tried with Premiere, but exporting "movie" files into a .GIF format through that program saves it as every single individual frame, and Photoshop is well... not going to cut it. I've tried a couple of online editors, but they're utter garbage as to be expected. For anybody who edits GIFS, what would you recommend using?

    I've always enjoyed using Sony Vegas when making GIF's if that's what you mean by "GIF editing", would just use a website to upload the MP4 file as a GIF .

    Spoiler for sb lol!:

    I'd like to be able to export the file directly as a GIF so I have control over the compression settings! I'd be aiming to make extremely high quality GIFs, comparable to 1080p or so.

    Photoshop won't let you work with MP4s as sources, I believe. I'd like to find a program where I could import MP4s, edit them, and then export them as HQ GIFs. I'm a needy bitch.

    Thanks. Took a further look into the Photoshop route and it might actually end up working. Can't say for certain though. From what I've found, it seems more recent versions of Photoshop seem to include some decent timeline capabilities when importing some files. Might end up getting out of the past with my archaic ass CS3 and try and more recent version.
