I am using Peek for screen recording into a GIF file.

Sometimes I want to remove useless part of the file. For this purpose I use Kdenlive.

After editing and rendering a final file become much bigger in size than original.

For some reason the default rendering pop-up has disabled quality settings. See screenshot below:

I don't know how to enable this setting.

Please help me enable quality settings for a GIF file. What kind of tools should I use for editing a GIF files?

    Gif doesn't offer a good compression level for video recording. Maybe you should try another format like mp4, webp, webm. I also record the screen on Windows with Camtasia, if I want to make small animations that should repeat itself on a forum for example I still use gif but otherwise I have to record the video on *.mp4. Here is a gif example: i.imgur.com/C0x3869.gif Oct 24, 2021 at 7:16

    GIF uses lossless compression, so you can’t tweak the quality/compression level. The only options you have for limiting file size are resolution (rescale) or choosing a format that supports different quality levels.
