What I am trying to do:
I am trying to use Gimp (2.8) to convert an mp4 video to a gif.
What I've done & The Problem:
- I downloaded and installed GAP (I pasted the resources I used below).
- Opened GIMP
- Went to Video > Split Video Into Frames > Extract Videoframe
- Selected the video
- Set "To Frame" to 180 (I've tried using different ranges here).
- Selected "Create only one multilayer image"
- Clicked "Okay"
Once I'm back in the main gimp screen, only one frame shows up in Layers.
Possible Issue & My question:
- Let's say I select "To Frame" and put in 180 (refer to screenshot below).
- Then I click "Video Range".
- In the Video Range screen, 180 is now the "End Frame" (which makes sense).
- However, if I click on the slider above the video preview in the "Video Range" screen, the "To Frame" and the "End frame" values reset to 1.
So, I'm guessing that behavior may be an indicator of whatever the main problem is. Is there a default setting that I need to change somewhere to allow Gimp to covert the video into more than one frame? If not, has anyone else encountered this problem and found a fix?
Thanks for any help.
