Testing : Convert a Video into seriate pictures
Well, this software has the ability to convert a part of video or an entire video into series of pictures ( PNG or JPG) format. The first time we tried with a HD Mp4 video of a bollywood song, downloaded from the official YouTube channel. I failed to get the series of images, every picture which came out seemed to be black. But, then I thought is there a problem with the video ? Let’s try another one. And hopefully it worked great.
Testing : Convert a video to animated GIF
A sample HD video Mp4 format was loaded. And after setting up the starting and ending time along with the delay settings, the GIF animation came out to be awesome. And that included Zero quality loss and Zero frame rate loss too. So, the software gave what it claims.
As you can see in the screenshot below, you can adjust the quality settings, as well as the delay you want on your animated GIF image.
Testing : Add special effects during conversion process
When I clicked on the effects, it seemed to be a few number. But that reminded of the software size coming up from 12 MB, that’s the number more than enough for a professional user. However, some more effects could have added a better taste to it.
But that’s a suggestion from a user’s point of view. If we look at the quality of GIF images and still shots by using the available effects, it can be described as awesome!
Testing : Customize the Resolution of the converted picture
It works great with zero quality loss. If you want to make a GIF animated pic or simply want a snapshot from the video and send it to a friend who has a different screen resolution to view. This software does the job. You just need to set your desired resolution to which the image needs to be optimized and converted.
Testing : Control Frame rate
Frame rate is generally the frequency of consecutive images generated by an imaging device. So, for example if the frame rate is too slow then it kind of looks jagged, and when its fast enough, it’s a smooth experience.
So, you can easily control the output of your GIF animated pictures, to make it look good. This factor is always important for a professional. The Aoao Video to Picture converter quickly lets a user to set it at the desired frame rate.
