Had already compressed as is suggested in the help file - however the compressed 10 second gif is still 8 times larger than the original entire MP4

Hi Bea,

May I know the size of the video? (ex 640x360, 1080, 720, etc.)

Hi just checking please - tested on an MP4 short video - the resulting 10 second gif (HD) is 15 times the size of the entire original video.
Have searched documentation and tutorials and note the HD comments - however for this purpose the other options made the gif far too grainy for its purpose.
Is there a workaround or are you looking at options for HD and compression?

 

Hi Bea, 

I got this noted. We will consider adding a compression process for GIFs in the future. For now you may use online tools in compressing GIF file sizes, please check this article: http://support.youzign.com/i1955-how-to-compress-your-gif , thank you.
