There are GIF editors available to do the job. Some allow you to export the individual frames, others convert to some form of AVI.
you can't just do it in CS3 itself? The help guide seems to imply you can but gives no clue on how to do it.
Well, you certainly can on a PC, but I don't have a Mac to try it on.
How do you do it on a PC? I can't imagine it's that different. Any help would be appreciated on this.
All I have to do to get animated .gifs to display correctly in Premiere Pro CS3 on a PC is import the .gif.
Did you press the tiny "Play" button in the Project panel next to the thumbnail view of the .gif?
Also try loading it into the Source Monitor by double-clicking the .gif in the Project panel. Then press play in the Source Monitor.
EDIT: It may be a case of PPro not recognizing and labeling the .gif properly, but yet it still may play it correctly.
Or not. :)
CS3 on a PC does recognize the animated .gif as a video clip, not a still. I don't know if that helps you or not.
here's the original image:
and it in premiere:
it says still image and i have no idea why or if it's supposed to.
We can't see the images. We don't have permission.
You can see them if you "reload" after the first failed attempt. :)
Here's a link to a screenshot of your .gif loaded in CS3 on my system.
First of all, it's a bit weird because the last 3 frames are still - the motion stops at frame 17. Playback in the Source Monitor also stops at frame 17, even though the file is 20 frames long.
Other animated .gifs that I've used have motion continuing right up until the last frame.
Maybe a corrupt source file. Do you have other animated .gifs you can test in CS3?
The original GIF (as in Michael's first link) consists of just 7 frames.

Then something is definitely wrong with the file because CS3 on my system sees it as 20 frames long.
