i discovered making animated gifs from movies is also easy with ffmpeg.

lovely tutorial is here:
blog.pkh.me/p/21-high-quality-

i just created that gifenc.sh (as described in the tut) in my home bin folder,

made it executable:
$ chmod u+x gifenc.sh

precut my video with

$ ffmpeg -t 5 -i INPUT.avi -c:v copy -map 0:v OUTPUT.avi

and then

$ gifenc.sh OUTPUT.avi OUTPUT.gif
