Resize ratio of GIF

Oftentimes, you'll need to resize a clip before converting a video to GIF file. This is easy with a preset canvas on CapCut. When you select a canvas, you can crop your file down to the perfect size. For example, if you wish to make an animated sticker, you should choose a canvas with a 1:1 aspect ratio. This is the most common sticker GIF format. If you're unsure what size to choose, a quick dive into any search engine can help you find the information you're looking for.

Adjust speed of GIF

Believe me, putting SlowMo and FastMo effects on your GIF is one of the funniest things. To heighten your GIF's comedic effect, you may need to adjust the speed at 0.25x, 0.5x. 0.75x, 1.5x, 1.25x, or 2x. Use CapCut GIF maker to edit your footage to perfection before converting it to a GIF. This is also a great time to take full advantage of CapCut's other exciting features like text, stickers, and effects. Remember, don't bother adding music or sound effects because .gif files don't support audio.
