My end goal is to extract a small 10 or 20 second clip from a commercially bought DVD and convert it to a animated GIF.
Couple of software recommendations:
First, what software to use in order to extract a small specified clip from a commercial DVD? I have not read any posts that go into detail on which software packages can actually extract segments from a DVD.
Secondly, what software to use in order to convert the extracted avi file from the DVD to a animated GIF?
Is a animated GIF the best way to go to show a movie clip on the web or as a signature on a forum? Would a flash file be better?
Thanks and any help would be appreciated.
