What is GIF short for?


GIF is short for Graphics Interchange Format. It was first developed by a computer scientist in the late 80s. Many people argue about the pronunciation of GIF—whether the ‘G’ is supposed to be pronounced as in ‘giraffe’ or as in ‘goat’. There has not been one unifying decision in its pronunciation.

Can I change bitrate, frames per second (FPS), resolution and CRF?


If you’re looking for a more advanced set of options, and you wish to control CRF, bitrate, resolution and FPS, then simply click on ‘Advanced Settings’. In this menu you will be able to adjust the video compression options to your exact specifications. Under ‘Resolution’ you will be able to choose from 480p, 720p, 1080p, 4k and more.

Quotation Mark - What they say about VEED

What they say
about VEED

Veed is a great piece of browser software with the best team I've ever seen.

Veed allows for subtitling, editing, effect/text encoding, and many more advanced features that other editors just can't compete with. The free version is wonderful, but the Pro version is beyond perfect. Keep in mind that this a browser editor we're talking about and the level of quality that Veed allows is stunning and a complete game changer at worst.

I love using VEED as the speech to subtitles transcription is the most accurate I've seen on the market.

The Best & Most Easy to Use Simple Video Editing Software!

I had tried tons of other online editors on the market and been disappointed. With VEED I haven't experienced any issues with the videos I create on there.

It has everything I need in one place such as the progress bar for my 1-minute clips, auto transcriptions for all my video content, and custom fonts for consistency in my visual branding.
