    Hello @Dantheman2001, you can't use GIFs as far as I'm aware but you can use sprite sheets. If you don't know what a sprite sheet is imagine all the frames you have in your GIF laid out on one big image. You only show a section of that big image and move the big image around to show each different frame through that section. Have a search around the forums there are some great examples and some pre-built functions for creating/reading sprite sheets that users have made.
