Hi,

Sorry for the close, but this goes against the personal/help threads section of the rules. However, if I'm understanding correctly, you want to take a clip from an anime and turn it into a GIF, possibly for an avatar? There's a few ways to do that.

Probably the easiest is to use a program like FRAPS - it lets you capture video of something playing on your computer, like a game or video. It will put a watermark on the video if you haven't paid for it, but so long as you only need a portion of the video, that shouldn't be a huge issue.

From there, you have several options for converting the video into a GIF. Just search for AVI to GIF, and lots of results will pop up for you. I prefer a locally running program, but there are online versions to do this as well.

If you need to touch up your GIF after that, you can use a program like GIMP, which treats each frame of the GIF as a separate layer so you can see / edit the animation, remove frames, repeat some, add borders, etc. The Glitchy Gifs group might also have suggestions!

Hope that helps some,
-Makoto
