Create a video with GIF images through API


I am trying to build an app that merges animated .gif into a video. I have managed to merge them using Shotstack’s API, but the gifs loose the animation and just show as plain images.

Any ideas on what can I do to merge the gifs into a single video without loosing their animations?

Animations of each gif should keep looping during the whole clip length specified in the video or image json in the time-line.

Hi @pachocastillosr. To keep animations when merging GIFs into a video, first convert the GIFs to MP4, then use our API to merge the converted clips. This method will retain the original animations in your final video.
