About This Class

This collection of tutorials teaches you how to import, animate and create animated GIFs in Final Cut Pro X. Animated GIFs are short and silent animated loops that are often uploaded and shared for fun or as viral advertising on sites like Twitter.

They are the predecessor of the Vine but are still a popular way of creating fun web-content. You can check out some animated GIF meme history on the web-site KnowYourMeme - which hightlights the trend in these perfeclty looped animation creations often from found video or using effects such as the Droste Effect .
