Create 3D animations with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a SKP (SketchUp) 3D model file and from this, create an animated GIF (Animated) (Graphics Interchange Format) file that you can then download and share without the need for any complex 3D modelling software.
Here are 3 simple steps to create an GIF (Animated) file from a SKP file.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your SKP file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the SKP to GIF conversion has completed, you can download your GIF file straight away.
We aim to process all SKP to GIF conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the SKP file you submit to us. The resulting GIF file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our SKP to GIF tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our SKP conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
The SKP 3D file format is the native file format used by SketchUp. The SketchUp application which was released back in 2000 is still going strong today, allows users to create detailed 3D graphics models.
SketchUp is popular amongst architectural designers, games developers and other professionals and hobbyist users. The SKP format can be opened with the SketchUp application.
Our tool will export only polygon mesh data along with color information. Curved surfaces and Textures are not supported and will be ignored.

GIF files have been around since the mid-to-late 1980's and were introduced by CompuServe as a way to compress color images into small file sizes suitable for downloading which at the time most download speeds were limited. The format allows varying size color palettes upto 256-colors in total to be defined from a palette of 16 million colors.
Later on the ability to add animations to the GIF file format was added. GIF files became a popular image file format for the early internet due to the small size, large color palette and animation capabilities and is still popular today.
