Animated gif tool? Windows, Mac Linux

The documentation and other posts have these cool animated gifs to help show how something works or how an error shows it self. What tool is used to create those? I would like to add it to my toolbox.

Thanks

We primarily use Giphy or LiceCap. :slight_smile:

This lists basic pros & cons of 8 ‘screen desktop’ recorders available on Ubuntu Linux https://itsfoss.com/best-linux-screen-recorders/

For GIF animation in particular the list notes Peek and Gifine.

For video formats like MP4 or OGV the lists includes
Kazam
OBS Studio
SimpleScreenRecorder
recordMyDesktop
VokoScreen
ScreenStudio

ffmpeg is a encode/decode tool able to convert between video file formats.

I use Peek for gifs and OBS for longer things, both run on linux.
