    I want an application which will allow me to convert simple quicktime animations to moving .gif animations.

    Is there such a program?

    Me too! It does seem like that would be an obvious utility to make. Does anyone know of one?

    I was looking for one of these a while ago, but couldn't find anything. So that's me four!

    Someone must know of something.

    If you are not scared on the command line and have installed ImageMagik (there's an OSX installer package on the web) you could do this. That was the 4th search result for "Quicktime to animated gif". The first 2 were for a perfect program to do this. For Windows :(

    Thanks robbieduncan, I'll give it a go.

    Not very confortable with things like this, but I might as well start at some point.

    You could always have someone who has Windows do it for you, since there are several programs that do this on Windows.

    Thanks for that Mitthrawnuruodo it's what I've been looking for, have used it already and works fine for something that is freeware.

    Don't know why this happened but after d/l it unstuffed as a Toast image file, so to get around this I used Get Info and chose open with DiskImage Mounter which solved the problem.
