direct import for animated GIF is not possible. What can you do? Primarily, you should understand how EmWi handles animated bitmap resources. Especially, please note the expected layout of the provided image. As explain in this doc, the original image file has to contain all the frames arranged side by side. For this purpose:
Step 1: Extract from the GIF all the included images.
Step 2: Store the images in one large image file. The images should be arranged in columns/rows according to the order in which they should be shown.
Step 3: Include the resulting image file to Embedded Wizard similarly as you do with any other image.
Step 4: Configure the animation speed for the bitmap resource.
For the steps 1 and evtl. 2 you will find diverse online conversion services. There you can upload the gif and download all the images. You can also use an adequate graphic editor for this purpose.
As alternative: With EmWi 9.30 we have added the import for motion JPEG (MJPEG) files. In such case, you can convert the GIF in MJPEG (again there are online services to do this or you use a converter tool) and add the MJPEG to EmWi 9.30 similartly as you do with other regular image files.
Does it help you?
In the above attached image, a smoke effect is shown. This effect is not continous. Once all the frames are shown, it starts again from first frame with a delay. The delay is shown as in below image and again the smoke effect starts.
