Download GifToSyphon (requires Mac OS X 10.9.5 or later)
GifToSyphon is a free Mac utility that combines two things that VJs love – Animated GIFs and Syphon.
Powered by the awesome Giphy search engine, a Mac VJ with an Internet connection can now instantly pull tagged GIFs from a huge online library and use them directly in their favorite Syphon enabled video application.
When not connected to the net GifToSyphon can also still use images from its local cache or using any of your own animated GIF files. These downloaded GIFs can also be loaded into most VJ software for remixing alongside your other media files.
For a quick introduction to using GifToSyphon with VDMX watch this new video tutorial:
