I've 1 last problem in After Effects that i would love to solve.
This is about animated gifs that are transparently.
If i put these into After Effects it gets white around!
So i wonder is there any way to make this get transparently?
Here's an example of an animated gif file with transparently on.

Also tried out the "Luma Key" for this, i nearly made it, but in some way it started to cut on the character

Problary any setting there i can solve this.

But hold on, another problem will appear after this one.
I want to scale up without get the pixel blurred out.
So my friend got me a ReSize plugin (instant HD) from red giant that will make the character not to get blurried out.

But when i'm using this one, the animated gif file gets back to a white square again, as in the beginning.

Only way i can think of now, which will take me alot of time, is to make them in After Effects, that i put in transparent PNG files and then animate them there.

The animated gig you post has no transparency. If you want to use it, you will have to kame your own transparency either by animating masks or keying.
