GIFBuilder for OSX is for you if you want to add animation to your Web site. Animated GIF files are the way to go, particularly for those less accomplished in animation, and very few programs make creating animated GIFs easier than GifBuilder. This scriptable utility offers an intuitive, drag-and-drop interface that supports many different file types, including PICT, TIFF, Photoshop (including layers), QuickTime movie, PIC, and of course GIF files. What's more, GifBuilder lets you control pixel depth, the color palette, dithering, size, interlacing, transparency, interframe delay, disposal method, frames position, and more...

What's New

Version 1.0:
  • Has a slightly more modern interface and is compatible with Mac OS X.

Requirements

  • Mac OS 8.1 or later (with CarbonLib) Mac OS X 10.0 or later

Has been rendered useless due to lack of support prior to OSX Lion.

I do wish it could be updated to run in Mountain Lion. I have tried every other animation app I can find, and nothing comes anywhere close to what this one does (did).

Sorry, but the low rating is solely due to the fact that I can't use it any more and I miss it.

Hello. I was just wondering if there have been updates to GIFBuilder that corrects this concern. I have Mountain Lion and would like to download GIFBuilder. Thanks.

Although the app is apparently compatible with OSX (according to the site and @xefned below), when trying to launch it in Lion I'm told "PowerPC applications are no longer supported" — which, admittedly, is not really a surprise since the latest version is from 2001.

Maybe I'll give it a try on my pre-Intel laptop. Will update here if I get a chance to do that — it would be remarkable if an app this old still ran in OSX!

If it's compatible with OSX, how come all I get is an unusable app for Classic?

Wow, it runs in OSX and it's the same program I've been using for occasional animated gifs for the last 15 years. Unheard of.

I only make animated gifs once every 4 years. But it's faster for me to download this, make an animated gif, and write a review, than it would be to figure out how to do in photoshop.

The above link gave me the Classic OS9 version. I found the OSX version at the developer's site: http://nyctergatis.com/gifbuilder/GifBuilder-carbon-1.0.dmg

I have just installed this and starting to get used to it. I am unable to "load palette". Any suggestions?? I am using Tv footage and the quality of the gif is awful. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

This is the big stickler for me too. GifBuilder used to work like a charm on Mac OS 9. Clearly it should not have been released for Carbon as it isn't ready and obviously at this point will never be updated.

Doesn't work. Save as wants to save as a Web page (HTML). Very disappointing failure of the most basic operation.

I don't think GifBuilder saves anything other than Gifs. Were you not trying to save something when viewing it in a browser?

Whether I'm clueless or I'm stupid. I uploaded a gif video that created 400 frames, and when I clicked on convert, it did save the file as gif but opened it as PDF...that is so weird.

Couldn't open a single image to start my animation with.
Tried "open" "convert" and dragging and dropping.
