Default [Q] Animated gif with Widget Zooper?

Hello all!

I would like to know how can i integrate an animated gif in a widget ZW please...

I made an animated gif with UnFreez, the animation works perfectly with my Samsung Galaxy's gallery, but not if i try to define it in a ZW...

Then here's my question: Can ZW display an animated gif, or not?...

Thanks per advance!

I wouldn't wait for it. Zooper renders its widgets by converting them to a bitmap and then displaying said bitmap. So for every change in a widget the whole bitmap has to be re-rendered, which is a resource heavy process. Displaying a GIF would mean refreshing the widget multiple times per second, which would be too much processing demand for most devices amd result in a very choppy animation.

Please use the forums for your Zooper related questions. I won't respond to PMs with questions that can/should be asked there. Thank you.
