Convierte videos de Vine a GIF en Mac OS X Si eres un apasionado de la nueva moda en internet, es decir Vine, te vamos a descubrir una aplicación que te encantará. Se llama VineGigfR y con ella podrás capturar todos los videos de Vine en GIF que quieras. De momento sólo está disponible para el sistema operativo de Apple, OS X. Suponemos que ya conocerás Vine. La idea ha gustado muchísimo, sobre todo a los que ya suelen ser usuarios muy activos en Twitter. ¿Qué es exactamente? Básicamente VineGigfR convierte esos pequeños vídeos de seis segundos en animaciones GIF que puedes guardar y subir a cualquier sitio. Además, es muy sencillo de utilizar. El único punto negativo que le vemos a VineGifR es que guarda todos los archivos resultantes con el mismo tamaño, 240×240 píxeles, cuando los vídeos de Vine tienen más resolución. Si te lo quieres descargar lo puedes hacer desde la plataforma GitHub pinchando aquí.
