Animated GIFs not playing in PowerPoint 2007
Posted on 2009-04-06
PROBLEM: Animated GIFs play 100% fine when imported into PowerPoint - however - when the PowerPoint presentation is closed and then re-opened, the GIF loader is broken and only the first GIF frame will load.
ALSO OF NOTE: This only seems to be the case for self-created animated GIFs; I have downloaded and used many animated GIFs from online and these play every time without difficulty.
SOFTWARE USED: PowerPoint 2007; Ulead GIF Animator 5 (NOTE: I am still evaluating this software, though as far as I can tell this does not reduce functionality at all).
