Okay basic thing for making avis -
1. U need to capture series of pictures that are there in any scene. (use windows movie maker)
2. U need to add those pics in chronological order & make GIF image from that.. (use photoscape)
Step 1 - covert your .flv video file to .avi, .wmv, .mpg (any extension which movie maker supports) using Any video converter (or any other software) (I use .wmv mostly)
Any Video Converter is a software's name!
Step 2 - Open movie maker & import that video of which u wanna make avi. You will find 'import video' option on the left side, click on that. (u can simply drag the video as well)
Step 3 - Just look at the right side space where u can view da video , u will see different tabs below that section, 7th tab is "take Picture" & 5th tab is "Next frame (Alt+right arrow)"
now just take picture (it will ask for one option to save ur clicked image, hit Ok) n now hit Next frame tab after taking ur pic.. Repeat this process for the whole scene of which u wanna make avi.
By that way u can get series of images, those images are saved in My picture section on C drive.
This is da most difficult task!!!
coz even 20 seconds scene, generates 150+ pics!!!!
Step 4 - Now go to da place where all pics are saved. Select n Copy those pics, Make a new folder and simply paste ur pics overthere. (this we are doing just for our convenience).
Step 5 - When u get ur series of images, Open Photoscape.
3rd tab on the top is 'Batch Editor'. Go there n from left hand side menu, choose your folder where u have saved ur pics (this is da reason why we did step 4).
Select all pics from that corner (ctrl + a) and drag it to blank space provided in middle.
Now on the right side corner, 3 options are there - Home, Filter, Object.
Home - There is one option 'Resize', a drop down menu is there, select last option from that list 'CROP' and after that just specify the size (100*100) in the box provided below that 'Resize' option.
Mostly avis are made of this size only, it fits best in your avtaar box then.
If you want bigger size avis then specify the size according. (Try all options provided for understanding it better) (bigger size takes more time to save n then get uploaded on sites)
Filter - Using this option, you can add different effects like brighten, bloom, etc. Try it on ur own..
Object - U can add 4 different text on this using this option.
There are three options on the top right corner, choose middle one 'CONVERT ALL' from that When you are satisfied wid ur effects, text n size.
It will generate a folder named 'output' in ur original folder where u have saved ur images clicked from movie maker and save all ur pics overthere, now onwards u have to use images from this 'output' folder only.
Now close photoscape.
Step 6 - Open your Photoscape again.
Go to "animated GIF" 6th tab overthere (choose the folder 'output' where ur images are saved) n just keep adding those pics... U can even press Ctrl + A n drag those pics to da desired section...
There is one "change time" tab overthere, just keep da time to 5 seconds or max 10 seconds... otherwise ur avi would run in slow motion!!!!
Step 7 - Bas when u get ur desired result, just save ur avi n u are done!!!
