GIF Player for Construct 3.

Play a GIF in your C3 project. Loading and decoding takes some time, there is a trigger for GIF loaded and a condition for GIF loaded. GIFs can be included in project files or external (for external URL on a different server, the usual CORS policy must be set up on the server.)

The plugin is based on the excellent JS library GIFGroover by blindman67: github.com/blindman67/GIFGroover

See the example project for more details on usage.

The addon is free, only donate to help support development of future addons/effects :)

Awesome work. What is the maximum GIF file limit that can be played?

Thank you!

I think this will be limited by CPU memory, I have not tested it to the breaking point yet. If you see something that breaks it, please let me know!
