GIF Brewery helps you create *.gif files or GFYCATs from clips of your video files.

In addition, GIF Brewery can help you quickly create GIFs from iOS or Mac screen recordings. However, in this tutorial, we’ll be focusing on just quickly creating a simple .gif from a video file.

Upon opening GIF Brewery 3, you’ll be presented with the Welcome Screen. It offers information on the latest version, updates, and contact details for support.
