When it comes to creating animated GIFs, there are a lot of commercial applications on the market for turning stock images into animations. Unfortunately, most of them cost a lot of money and require a considerable investment of time just to learn the basic operation. Feature bloat is often put before ease of use, simply because a long list of functions can be seen as a sales argument. The error in reasoning here being, that once customers pull out their credit cards, they want nothing less than buy the gold version, including everything and the kitchen sink. In reality, what users actually profit from most instead, is a simple tool that just does its job, without investing heavily into a bank of potentially confusing features.

GiftedMotion was written with ease of use in mind. It considers complicated controls to be a liability, users should not be exposed to. Usability is it's top priority and the whole GUI design gives credit to this goal, allowing for huge savings in time, as producing results becomes as quick and painless as possible.

As an additional benefit, Giftedmotion also comes free of charge. There are no hidden costs attached to it. There is no financial risk in testing the software. A credit card to buy or register anything is not needed.
