How do I work with a .Gif in Motion? Is there anything special I need to do, to work with this type file, I know when I open a file in Quicktime it does not seem to like to loop like a .gif seems to do.
The loop is not embedded; you have to tell the player to loop it.
Your best bet is to open it in your favorite gif player and export it as a QT. You should be able to designate a number of loops.
There are lots of issues with gifs being used as realworld graphics. I doubt the gif is 720x480 so it will be rescaled to be used full screen and that's really gonna hurt. I do not believe you're going to liek the results but please come back and tell us how things worked out.
This is my standard sigfile so do not take it personally: "For crying out loud, read the freakin' manual."
