AVI to GIF Converter
AVI (Audio Video Interleaved) is a multimedia
container format introduced by Microsoft in November 1992 as part of its Video
for Windows software. AVI files can contain both audio and video data in a file
container that allows synchronous audio-with-video playback. Like the DVD video
format, AVI files support multiple streaming audio and video, although these features
are seldom used. Most AVI files also use the file format extensions developed
by the Matrox OpenDML group in February 1996. These files are supported by Microsoft,
and are unofficially called "AVI 2.0". The data contained in the AVI
files may be encoded in codecs, allowing the files to use less compression than
other video file formats, such as the MPEG and MOV file formats. However, AVI
files have a 2 GB size limit, restricting their use to some degree. Even though
the AVI file format is almost 20 years old, it is still one of the most widely-used
video file formats in existence today.
(Graphics Interchange Format) is a bitmap image format that was introduced by
CompuServe in 1987 and has since come into widespread usage on the World Wide
Web due to its wide support and portability. The format supports up to 8 bits
per pixel for each image, allowing a single image to reference its own palette
of up to 256 different colors chosen from the 24-bit RGB color space. It also
supports animations and allows a separate palette of up to 256 colors for each
frame. These palette limitations make the GIF format unsuitable for reproducing
color photographs and other images with continuous color, but it is well-suited
for simpler images such as graphics or logos with solid areas of color. GIF images
are compressed using the Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) lossless data compression technique
to reduce the file size without degrading the visual quality. This compression
technique was patented in 1985. Controversy over the licensing agreement between
the software patent holder, Unisys, and CompuServe in 1994 spurred the development
of the Portable Network Graphics (PNG) standard. All the relevant patents have
AVI to GIF Converter converts AVI to GIF animation and vice versa
in batch. AVI is a derivative of the Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF),
which divides a file's data into blocks, or "chunks." Each "chunk"
is identified by a FourCC tag. An AVI file takes the form of a single chunk in
a RIFF formatted file, which is then subdivided into two mandatory "chunks"
and one optional "chunk".
An AVI file may carry audio/visual data inside the chunks in virtually any
compression scheme, including Full Frame (Uncompressed), Intel Real Time (Indeo),
Cinepak, Motion JPEG, Editable MPEG, VDOWave, ClearVideo / RealVideo, QPEG, and
MPEG-4 Video. AVI to GIF Converter supports the most codecs of AVI file.
