Gif animated image in the product description on Themeforest

Hi,
It is allowed to use animated gif image in the product description on Themeforest ?
As an example : I want to show how it works in my theme page builder and for that I thought to do a screen animation.

Thank you ,

Yep, I think I’ve still got a few on mine

Thank you @dtbaker ! You’re awesome !
I have no problem with implementation. I wonder if it’s allowed in Envato terms . Because I did not find anything written about this gif animations in description in terms.
But I think is allowed.

@dtbaker I don’t know why recent purchased and recent sales are showing blank ?

last purchased is yesterday in the statements. See my Hosting Template

Any Idea?

I also know that the animated gifs are allowed.

The only thing to take into account is the item page performance, there was a post here: http://marketblog.envato.com/tips/image-performance-tips-for-authors/

GIF is 1.1MB .
True, number of frames rather small and this generates a lag
Another theme with gif description ? But GIF to be quality without lag. To see how fast it loads.

Try remove the cache files via ftp and see if that works

No luck :frowning:

Ah! I fixed this in my copy but didn’t update github. I’ll wack the fixes up now :slight_smile:

No worries… I’ll take the latest now from github. :+1:

Awesome… Works perfect now :smile:

Thanks a lot :+1:

also FYI. imgur is now blocked on ThemeForest, might want to move your broken profile page images over to new hosting :slight_smile:

Oh… Yes… That’s a Painful Task :sweat:

Will update soon…
