GIF limitations

If using your GIF as an overlay, the GIF must be the same size as the screen you place it on. It isn’t currently possible to use a GIF as an overlay on a static image and have that GIF play upon opening the screen. You can, however, use a GIF as an overlay and use a hotspot to play it.
