I want to generate gif files from wmv movie files. I am hoping that it can generate from a given section in the movie file with options of how many images are in the gif. Can you help me?

This is for Windows XP

i've used GiftedMotion to create .gifs from movies before. on a Mac, so i've used QuickTime 7's ability to export a selection as a group of images and then imported those into giftedmotion to tweak the .gif.

given that you asked for .wmv specific instructions, i'll assume you're on windows, so the Mac OS X stuff is of little use to you. GiftedMotion is a java app though, so provided you can find a way to export the .wmv to a sequence of images, that should help you create the final product.
