Please add "Export to Animated GIF" to Camtasia Mac.

Camtasia for windows already supports exporting to animated gif, which is great for answering, "How do I do X" style questions in forums where you can only embed images, such as the Stack Exchange network. For instance, one might ask, "How do I turn off bluetooth on my macbook pro?" and while I can give a list of steps, being able to quickly capture a short video showing them how to do it, then exporting it as gif and uploading it to the site is significantly better.

While I understand you're still developing some of the features on Camtasia Mac, I would like to see a greater degree of similarity in capabilities between the two.

Hi all. I want this too. And I work on Photoshop. Need Gifs as an Experience Designer. Filing bugs. Sharing tutorials. GIF. GIF GIF GIF GIF GIF. I'd post a gif here if I could. Because that would be meta.

Hi all,

Thank you for providing feedback and explaining why animated GIF export is important to you. I'm happy to announce that we released Camtasia for Mac 2.9 today, which includes the ability to do that!

To export to animated GIF:
  1. Go to Share > Advanced Export
  2. Select Export to Animated GIF from the file format dropdown
  3. Click Export



Hope this helps!

Leanne

Thank you for including this but there's no option for looping. In other words, I don't want my gif to loop more than once. Any news on upcoming update with this included?

Wonderful! thanks -- I didn't know I'd need this option, but once I was in a situation that needed it, it was great to see it built in!
