    I am trying to convert a .avi to a .gif file

    I have downloaded a couple of different converters and they want to convert it into mpeg only. Basically what I am trying to do is take a highlight(sports) and use it on my web page.

    Please help me

    So you want to freeze a frame from an avi film and make it into a .gif still? Or do you want to make an animation based on .gif stills. Be a little clearer. If you want to freeze a frame then you need to pull the avi into an NLE--Windows Movie Maker (the latest version) willl allow you to save a frame as a pic--normally jpeg or png.

    The wonderful Irfanview will extract all the frames from a AVI file into a directory. You can then use it to convert the jpegs to gifs

    what i use to make a gif animation out of a movie clip is
    1. convertmovie3.0 to convert the movie to quicktime format.
    2. quicktime pro. to select the section of the clip i want to use.
    3. adobe imagready. to make the gif animation.

    Virtualdub can extract portions of an AVI/MPEG and save as an image sequence. Free
