Screen To Gif at version 2.3.1, changes:

What's new?
  • Now there is a warning about the lack of .Net Framework 4.6.1 when using >4.0 <4.6.1
  • Transitions effects have keyboard shortcuts. The panels "Apply/Cancel" buttons now have keyboard shortcuts as well.

Bug fixes:
  • Reworked cursor capture. Now it works better with different cursors (not only the default, but the dark, inverted or I-Beam cursors).
  • The Ctrl+Z (Undo) action after applying an overlay or overriding the delay.
  • The Snapshot mode and Fullscreen mode options were switched on the Options window.
  • It was impossible to apply a Slide transition effect.
  • It was impossible to import a gif.
  • It was impossible to export a single frame (right click on the frame list).
  • Incorrect size values of the recorder when using high dpi displays.
  • Undoing 2x an action that altered only the delay of frames causes a crash.

Known bugs:
  • OutOfMemory exception when importing giant videos.
  • The crop feature fails when cropping a board recording (with high DPI);

Experimental features
  • Full screen recording is now possible. Use carefully, it's not polished yet.
  • There's a new encoder called "ScreenToGif", great for recordings with less than 256 colors, but it's slower.

I got a chance to test this a bit more over the weekend. I could go on and on about how much I like this program. In fact, I did but unfortunately I had a system error and lost all that. Instead let me just say what came to me as possible additions as I was playing with it:


  • Space saving

    • Abilty to remove every X frames (good for cutting down file size) [Edit: up on Github]

    • Any other compression goodies at file save including cropping, limited colors/grayscale, resolution options, etc.

  • Editor

    • Some kind of easy way to apply changes to all frames (right now you apply to a given frame with alt+e so all frames might be ctrl+alt+e)

    • Auto-crop that automatically draws the smallest possible crop square to exclude a single-color border (cut all the space surrounding an image).

  • Export capabilities

    • Ability to export batch or individual frames - again to GIF or PNG format. (Workaround here is just to save as a ZIP file and extract; the program's "Project" format saves everything in PNG format)

    • Ability to output to other formats than GIF. Although video formats are supported with FFMPEG, I'd like to see other animation formats like APNG or FLV. Although they're not as widely supported, I think they're smaller, support more colors, and can be used by other anim programs. (Workaround: for APNG is same as above but add to a PNG animation program)

  • Animation

    • When you add a Board recording to a current screen recording, it should optionally select the last selected size and use the last frame of the last recording so you can make addendums (e.g. point from one folder to another to indicate it needs to be moved)

    • Ability to add transitions to all slides at once (right now you can select all but it will only modify one of the slides)

  • Low priority

    • Transparent borders with or without shadow. As I understand it, this is not a clearly supported feature in most GIF viewers so this might be a really difficult feature to add.

Sort of a bug: adding pictures

Steps: Create a new project that's plenty large (e.g. 800x600), click "Insert - Media" and add some pictures of various sizes (all within the 800x600 max size). Defect: all images get resized to the original file size. Expected results: each file is given it's own frame with it's original size. Workaround: add one image at a time.

Screen To Gif at version 2.3.2, changes:

What's new?
  • Changed the output of the error logs to the Documents folder.
  • Added a "Scale" option to resize your webcam video feed.

Bug fixes:
  • Bugs with the management of localization resources.
  • Check for updates was reporting a new release (even when it shouldn't).
  • Cursor capture was causing a memory leak.
  • Error when opening the save dialog when the last selected folder did not exist.
  • It was impossible to import a project using drag and drop.

I couldn't find a way to disable update check. I have to rename the executable (ScreenToGif x.x.x.exe to ScreenToGif.exe) any time I update the program.

Screen To Gif at version 2.4, changes:
What's new?
  • Drag and drop files from the encoder.
  • Context menu for each completed encoding, providing some clipboard operations.
  • License informations available in the "About page".
  • Error messages are now more user-friendly.
  • You can now configure where the location of the logs folder.
  • The playback buttons are now disabled during the opening of a side panel.
  • Now it remembers the clipboard paste behavior (Clipboard > Paste behavior).
  • Updated Danish, Chinese (simplified) and Russian translations.

Bug fixes:
  • If an action (from a panel such as "Save as") failed because of some validation or when closing with the top-right X button, the playback buttons would stay disabled.
  • Undoing a transition left a frame that should be deleted.
  • PageDown and PageUp jumps among various frames instead of one by one.
  • Clipboard list was not being cleared after deleting the recording.
  • Color picker: While returning to the initial color, the numbers were not replaced with the selected color.
  • Wrong validation of negative numbers for numeric inputs.
  • Error while pasting and undoing the pasting of frames (quickly).
