It has not been long that Twitter unveiled its new and somewhat controversial vine service, and now Esten H, Twitter software engineer as well as creative Github member, has come up with a method to convert Vine videos into animated GIFs. VineGifR, as the program is aptly called, can effectively turn MP4 videos created in Vine into soundless GIFs; however the outcome is rather choppy, probably because some frames are dropped while the conversion is taking place. From observations made so far, it appears the program works best for still shots instead of videos that have plenty of movements. If you are a Mac user, you can download the app free of charge from Github.
