Microsoft Clip Gallery for Powerpoint  (Animated)

I downloaded a gif of two people shaking hands from Microsoft Clip Gallery Live at the following URL

http://www.microsoft.com/clipgallerylive/default.asp?prev=316111

While I'm on that web page the gif is animated.  When I download the gif and double-click on it -> up comes IE4 and it is animated.  

Problem is when I import it into a powerpoint presentation the gif is static.  From my research this gif is only animated when used with a browser.  Does anyone know of equivalent .avi files that will animate in a powerpoint presentation?


Thanks

Animiated GIFS do not work in PowerPoint...but you might want to get a hold of the original MS Office CD...and browse the contents of the CD...

There is a folder on the CD called Clipart which has an install program that installs approx...150 Megs of additional clipart, movies, etc...and you may find what you are looking for..

hope this helps..
