I'm new to Construct 3, and was wondering if there is a way for the players to record gifs during gameplay? I mean without an external program. So a player could hit "record gif" button while playing?
Thank you in advance for all the answers <3
Use the Game Recorder object. See the screen recording example for a demonstration.

Thank you newt and Ashley for your replies! Ok, so Game Recorder for videos, but no way to make gifs, got it.
On the modern web things people refer to as GIFs often are really just video files. Real video formats are often much smaller and more efficient than GIF files, which is a really old and pretty inefficient format from the 90s. If you really want to get a .gif file you can probably find free video-to-gif transcoders, but if you're uploading them to a social network or something, chances are they accept videos directly, and if you uploaded a .gif they'd convert it to a video for you.
Really?? Thanks Ashley for bringing that up! I see now that I have apparently stayed in the 90s in some things :D I thought that a GIF is a .gif and nothing else. I feel like a dinosaur :D I'll look more into it, and probably will use the video format then. Thank you again <3
