When stopped, a .mov file will be created.

2, convert .mov to .gif

Since .mov cannot be placed on Qiita as it is, convert it to .gif.

#Install with homebrew
brew install ffmpeg

ffmpeg -i fuga.gif

# (application)If you want smooth movement, increase the frame rate with the r option.(Number of frames per second)
ffmpeg -i -r 10 fuga.gif

When completed, a gif will be created and you can paste it like this.
