Does anyone else feel they can just stare at a gif for hours on end?

I don't know what it is about the anime animated gif, but i never seem to get tired of them. Also strangely hypnotic and soothing....

I enjoy staring at the really good ones and try to get ideas on how to improve the gifs I make.

Im sure you can find it again on the gif site that everyone uses that my brain can't seem to remember the name of offhand lol.

I get halfway through a page and it just won't load anymore for some reason so i gave up trying to go there.

I've tried quite a few programs, but I primarily use software called Easy GIF Animator 6 by Bluementals Software. A trial period allows you to use it 20 times. After that, it only cost $19.87 (US). I've only been using it for a month, but whenever I had a question about how to do something or use a feature, their customer support responded with a real answer by the next day!

I'm still trying to find a decent DVD ripper that allows me to grab only the frames I need to start the GIF making process. If anyone out there has recommendations, I'd like to hear them. Please keep in mind that I don't want to spend a lot of $$$ on the software.

Edit: my GIF of the girl on the swing took less than 5 minutes to make with this software.

well if the gif is hours long then yes. I would never put myself through watching one 5 second gif looped over and over again

It also helps if you're drunk.... or high!

But seriously, I've learned a lot about what to look for in video clips and how to manipulate frames and timing just by watching well-made GIFs over and over.

There's a GIF site that everyone uses?? I've been going through the trouble of making my own?!? Oh well, at least I know they're mine and they have some meaning behind them.

Clever gifs n ones w/ optical illusions rly get me hooked.

Tumblr.... I think theres a mod on here that makes em, I've seen a post but something about having to have a membership card or some nonsense about CR stuff i have no knowledge of to get one made. But its worth maybe asking them what they use to make it or whatnot.
