Also, it seems that it is better to use spritesheets than gifs. Check this out.

:slight_smile: Saw that also, but what are spritesheets?

Oh my my, you don’t know what is a spritesheet? Never mind Check this out.

Oooook. But, see this coment from the gif discussion: ‘is not impossible if you export the gif to video, the viewport+sprite structure could be a single scene and the video stream should let you load big/good quality images’. Is that doable?

Otherwise, how to ‘cut’ the gif images, and replay them in godot?

If someone was interested in exporting gif files from godot then they might check my repo on github.
