Is there a way to output an animation or video file in gif format from blender?

If not, what about VSE? Or can I record a screen inside blender?

Thanks a lot.

No, there isn't a way to export (or import) gif directly.

GIF is not a supported format in blender.

You would need to export your images or animation in a different format, and then convert it to GIF using an external application.

For a list of the supported formats read this.

To record a screen capture using external software refer to this post in Meta:

What is the process for creating gifs for questions and answers?
