is their a way to put an animated gif into a movie so that it stays animated and not just static if so how please....
You could extract the single frames from the gif (don't know which software to use) and import them as an image clip. Animated gifs are not supported in kdenlive.
ffmpeg should be able to directly convert the animated gif with something like:
ffmpeg -r 10 -i animated.gif animated.avi
Or a better solution might be to use both ImageMagick (or GraphicsMagic) and ffmpeg like:
convert animated.gif animated%05d.jpg
ffmpeg -r 10 -i animated%05d.jpg -y -an animated.avi
the -r gives the framerate. You have to experiment with that.
you can then use the converted gif as a movie clip in your project
Also you can use the Gimp's Gap plugins
And render as avi youre gif
Gimp ---> Menu / Video / Master Videoencoder
