Or you could use a tiny but insanely handy program called GifCam:

If you're afraid to click on the link, just google GifCam. I used it to make this GIF for example:

Pretty fancy tool. Not nearly as fun or talent-invested as a Photoshop method though x)

I play on the Begereny Colony, Eldergame on both factions.

Tenaden - Republic, 55, Guardian, Tank.
Qor-q'Lepton - Empire, 55, Juggernaut, Tank.
Borilius - Republic. 55, Commando, Healer.

& a bunch more chars that are all over the place in levels, but those are my mains.

Example of a .gif! This one I made is of Lepton.

If you want it to be from the perspective of your character, then yes. Otherwise I could record you doing some stuff, which would offer more things that could be put into the .gif. Like wide angles, better view of abilities, etc. But again, it would not be centered on your char, which might not be the objective of the .gif you want.

Hrm. Perhaps we take a few outer-perspective shots, and I see if I like it? If I don't, then I could record some footage. Seems like the best course of action to me.

Looks good, OP. I've always wondered how to make animated gifs, but didn't look into it too much because i assumed it would be more work then I wanted to put into it. I'll give your link a try in a few days. If I fail horribly a few times, then I'll send you my stuff so you can make it look good.

Your examples above look real good.
