Easy Gif has an updated version which can convert video to GIF after about 5 hrs wait.
This one is well ok, I don't really think there is a great GIF animator that does everything I want it to.
Like all Blumentals software, I hate the way their licence works and I find it quite sly. I've told them this but..
This is a cheap-tidy little package. I found it easy to use but my needs outgrew it's ability very quickly and I suspect this will be a problem for most users. Considering the price I am not unhappy with the choice but perhaps could have been better off spending my time learning a more capable program
The software developer responded to this review on May 11, 2006:
This software was designed and optimized for *easy* use by casual computer users, webmasters and beginner-level computer artists. If you are looking for a professional tool which is not so easy to use but delivers much more features, Easy GIF Animator might be not the first choice, but it is a great tool to start with for most of us.
