Currently, LOAD IMAGE FROM URL is a great feature, allowing easy run-time access of images, loading them straight into SPRITES.
But if the image is a GIF, it does not allow the GIF to play when you display the SPRITE.
The only way I've found to load a GIF form a URL and display it within C2, is by using an iFRAME plugin. But this has other problems.
The clean and simple and consistent method would to allow LOAD IMAGE FROM URL to work with GIFS, loading them into sprites like any image, and allowing them to repeatedly play the GIFS always do.
As more and more people are using GIFS as personal AVATARS instead of static images, this is a very useful feature.
Would be great in C2, or the new C3.
