How did you create such a nice animated gif? I tried to used ffmpeg, but the output was horrible... –  Paul Sweatte Feb 20 at 23:53
@PaulSweatte LICEcap with a framerate of 30. For a small demonstration, the filesize is usually small ~200-300kb. –  Dave Chen Feb 21 at 5:04
LICEcap, never heard of it until now. It generates animated gifs by default, so no conversion needed. Thanks! –  Paul Sweatte Feb 24 at 18:04
