Click the "Preview" button (or directly modify the "Video Size" and "GIF Size" parameters), and a preview window will pop up. You can now see the 'Video Picture' and 'GIF Picture' in the preview window. Adjust the "Video Size" parameters to change the size of the video picture, and adjust the "GIF Size" and "Margin" parameters to change the size and display position of the GIF picture. By setting these parameters, you can capture any part of the video and make GIF animations of any size.
You may set the GIF animation speed anywhere from 25% to 200% of the original video. However, 100% is typically recommended.
In order to reduce the size of the GIF file, the number of frames can reduced as needed and set as low as 1/20 to the full amount of frames of the original video. Typically 1/4 or 1/5 yields the best results.
Set the color of GIF animation: You can choose from 4 all the way up to 256 colors. Selecting a low number of colors will reduce the size of the GIF file, but the quality will deteriorate. It is recommended to choose 64 or 128 colors for best results.
