123 AVI to GIF Converter is a simple-to-use application with a pretty self-explanatory title - it allows you to encode AVI files to the GIF format. But it also supports other video extensions, such as FLV, 3GP, MOV and MKV.
The interface of the program is plain ad easy to navigate through. Video clips can be imported by using the file browser only, since the "drag and drop" method is not supported (and neither is batch processing).
So, you can preview clips and pause the frame, as well as specify the start and end point before proceeding with the conversion process (i.e. trimming).
In addition, you can input the frame step, crop and resize the source, enable looping mode, set the frame delay and enable 123 AVI to GIF Converter to convert to a 256 grayscale GIF image.
After you press the "Make GIF" button, you can select the destination folder and output filename. Unfortunately, you cannot cancel the task while viewing its progress.
The program runs on a massive amount of system resources (taking into account its limited features), quickly finishes a task (although it takes a longer for MKV videos) and generally manages to keep a good image quality. However, it ruined the quality of a FLV video. Also, you cannot configure program settings. We recommend 123 AVI to GIF Converter with reservations.
