Pro GIF Q & A

(1) What are the differences between Pro GIF Recorder Toolkit, Pro GIF, and Pro GIF Universal?

All three assets provide the encoder and GIF managers for recording GIFs. Supports instant preview of the newly recorded GIF frames in the recorder. With some additional optimization and enhancement compared to other GIF assets.

In contrast, Pro GIF & Pro GIF Universal provides powerful GIF player solutions in addition to the Pro GIF Recorder Toolkit. 
Pro GIF Universal further boosts the decoder(player) speed up to 70% faster than Pro GIF. Pro GIF decoder is the second version(V2, released on Jun 3, 2017) of our decoder, while the Universal decoder is the third version (V3, released on Jul 15, 2019).

(2) Can I upgrade to higher versions from Pro GIF Recorder Toolkit or Pro GIF?

Yes, you can upgrade to higher versions any time you want, with a cheaper upgrade price (deduct the lite version price).

Upgrade: Pro GIF Recorder Toolkit ➤ Pro GIF ➤ Pro GIF Universal

(3) Is it suitable for Mobile applications? Any performance issues?

Mobile devices like Android, iOS phones/pads are also essential platforms we focused on. All our assets have great performance on both mobile and desktop platforms.
