What's An Animated GIF?
GIF is a raster image format with relatively low quality, at least compared to image files such as JPEG and PNG. What's so amazing about GIFs is that they do not only support transparency, but animation as well. Animated GIFs became very popular on the web to share endlessly looping video sequences.
Why Use An Animated GIF?
If you already have a great, funny, short video clip, why would you even want to convert it into an animated image?
GIFs loop. A video often has to be restarted in order to watch it again, while an animated GIF repeats the scene endlessly.
If you want to use the animated sequence as an avatar or image on the web, you often cannot upload a video file. In these cases, you need it as a GIF image file.
