GIFs are one of the best ways to show off your work on the internet, but sometimes making them can be a confusing and frustrating process. In this quick class I'm going to teach you the best ways I know to create GIFs from your own animations. We'll cover what makes a great GIF, balancing the quality and filesize of your GIF, and a few different tools for exporting GIFs. In just 15 minutes I'll demystify the GIF creation process and you'll be 100% equipped for sharing your own looping GIFs all over the internet!

Another great class from Jake. I appreciate the brevity of it!
I kind of know next to nothing about .gifs though, so I guess in general it would be a good class for those who have always wanted to try making a .gif

Just got started!

This was a quick, informative overview on exporting Gifs. Great to know as a designer, especially if you plan on doing a lot of animation.

Hey! My name is Jake Bartlett, and I’m a motion designer working and playing in sunny Los Angeles, California. I've been animating in Adobe After Effects for over ten years. After five years of working for an LA-based production company, I have gone freelance full-time and now work from home. Animating as a motion designer professionally is a dream for me. I get to use After Effects every single day for my job.

Since starting my professional career I've animated over 800 episodes of 8 different motion graphics shows for clients like Yahoo!, MSN, Twitter, YouTube, Pepsi, VH1, HGTV, NateGeo Wild, The History Channel, and Ulive to name a few. In my free time I love making animations for myself. I've found that constantly challenging myself on my own time has been the best way to increase the quality of my work. Being able to consistently use After Effects on a daily basis and always having a tight deadline has made me very fast and efficient with the program.
