GifCam version 4.0 comes with the three most requested features:
- Change green-screen color: To prevent conflict between recorded colors and green-screen color.
- Keyboard Inputs: GifCam has only a mouse-centric interface with Keyboard Inputs window you can type some values (delay, resize and delete from to).
- Option to store frames on hard Disk instead of memory: Shift + New will save recorded frames in Temporary folder:

Here is a list of GifCam alternatives software, they have the same idea of generating gifs by recording screen, you may find one of them suit your need, or has features GifCam miss, or has better user interface :
Maybe I’m biased to tell my favorite :)
What is your favorite and why?
GifCam 3.1 is one bug fix update, it is actually one line of code I forgot to write,
this missing line cause the yoyo feature not adding yoyo delays to yoyo frames instead it adds 0 ms delay to all yoyo frames:
Although I don’t think it worth to change the version number, but I changed it to 3.1 :) for distinguishing the bug version, sorry about that.
“Draw Green Screen” is one of my favourite feature in GifCam 3.0, with this feature you can create part moving part still “cinemagraph” gif. To make this feature works nicely, find a scene where the camera is stable no zoom, pan or shaking camera, delete unwanted frames then start drawing (over the still part wanted area) on the second frame (Drawing on first frame makes a transparent background gif).
”Draw Green Screen” works with “Show Green Screen” so you can show the actual represent pixels of your drawn green screen.
Here are some gifs I created using Draw Green Screen feature:
also you can use this feature to reduce gif size by widen the green screen area.
