Hey, guys
I was wondering if it is possible to load a looping multi-frame GIF animation into a movie clip and have it actually play during main SWF playback.
I'm aware that you can import a GIF as a sequence of images to stage, or library, but that method won't work with an XML gallery, unless all the GIFs are converted to little SWFs (right?).

Any thoughts on this?

thank you

Howdy and Welcome... :)

If I remember correctly, Flash only reads the frame 1 of the animated GIF file... You do need to convert it to SWF if you need to play the full frames...
