Can’t find the right GIF? Make your own.With Descript’s video editor you can quickly create GIFs from video clips, add animated text, and share wherever, with whoever. It’s a simple, powerful way to create GIFs and other video — and it’s free.
Drag and drop the video clip that you want to convert into a GIF. Wait a few seconds for Descript’s automated transcription tool to transcribe the audio.
Add text using Descript’s Fancy Captions tool, then set the size and color you want, move it to the right place on the clip, and add animations.
Export the clip as a GIF file and post your GIF image on social media or send it with your iPhone or Android device.
GIF stands for Graphics Interchange Format. Simply put, these are moving images that often contain a text layer displaying subtitles for the clip. Usually, GIFs don’t contain sound, but some platforms do support GIFs with audio playback.
Descript’s Fancy Captions offer a number of different fonts so your GIF text matches the style that you’re going for. Once you have the Fancy Captions text editor pulled up, choose the font that’s perfect for your clip. If you’re a Descript Pro subscriber, you can import your own fonts to match your brand. Resize the text box and change the text color with the text tool or add text effects to create your perfect new gif.
For GIFs created on a Descript Creator or Pro plan, exports come watermark-free. GIFs created on Descript’s Free plan come with a Descript logo watermark.
