Post Using GIF's as Live Wallpaper

Is it possible? I have a great gif that would look awesome on the Incredible but don't know if there is a way to convert it.

I'm pretty sure Android does not support animation of gif files.

But is there a process to use the photos within the gif and implement them into a live wallpaper?

You could check out the app called Ownskin.

I haven't tried it so I don't know what filetypes it'll take, or how it works.
If you're trying to use an animated gif you'd saved, and it only takes jpgs, for example, then you'd split the animated gif into separate pics, save each as a jpg and import them to the app.
(again, I haven't tried it so I'm not sure what is required).
HTH, would be interested in how it works out, if you try it.
