Gifski is a free app to convert videos to high quality GIFs in MAC. This app takes an MP4 file from you and then creates a high quality GIF from it which you can export as well. This app is very simple and to use it, you just have to use drag-drop operation to start the conversion. Additionally, this app allows you to tweak some parameters such as quality, frame count, etc., for the final GIF. The app is pretty straightforward and you can start using it right away after you install it from the app store.
You can find some other tools for video to GIF conversion. But in those tools, the GIF gets distorted sometimes. For creating a high quality GIF, there are very limited number of tools. One method is to use FFmpeg via command line, but if you want a GUI based app for MAC then Gifski is the right tool for that. In just a few seconds, you can convert a video to a high quality GIF and do whatever you want.
