Nothing like being too busy to keep up! Yikes!
Ran into this question, but the web had no simple answer I could find quickly, so here it is:
Q. How do I convert animated GIF files into MOV files on a Mac?
A. If you have Quicktime Pro 7.6.9 or another recent version, it will let you open, save and edit the file. It has to be the Pro version, the new and crappy, disabled, free version doesn’t do it (of much else the old Pro version does).
You do have to buy or own QuickTime Pro, but you should anyway. 🙂
