I think you’re better off finding the original video that the gif was made from to be honest and posting a looped version of that. Gifs are highly compressed files so what you’re doing by converting it back to a video is stretching an image which has been originally compressed to smaller resolution whilst also removing frames from the original file to make the file size so small. When you’re making it a video again from the gif format you aren’t getting the orginal resolution back, you’re stretching a small image to a bigger size which will keep the same quality as the smaller version but will be displayed bigger, which will be the reason why the quality looks so bad. similar to like if you watched a 240p resolution video and you watched it fullscreen on a HD monitor or TV. it would look terrible. But there are apps out there you could use if you dont have time to do it in editing software such as premiere pro if you did want to go down the route of converting Gifs to Video files. But I would try source the original video. I hope this helped
GIfs from around the internet. Really just .gif files
Most of the gifs I want to use are not just plainly taken from videos, some of them are already edited etc… and I want them just as they are. Also Its a bit of a mass/batch thing , so while its important that they retain their quality, Im also looking into it giving the least amount of work.
Any video convertor ultimate.
You can convert unlimited number of gifs to a bunch of formats,you will need iphone mp4.
The quality is the same as the gif.
After you make the converting make sure you sort your files based on lenght since IG accepts 3+seconds video so anything shorter than 3 seconds won’t work.
If you are on a Mac I use Total Video Converter (the pro version). I don’t know about the lite version I’ve had it for so long I can’t remember. It’s an older app but it’s easy peasy. When I need to I just dump 100+ in there and go have a beer.
After you go through the dead simple settings setup. You literally just drop your files into the “Drop video music files here” box and select the Instagram output.
