GIF support for Icons / Hotspots

by freemanstudio » Fri Dec 01, 2017 12:14 pm


well, there is one thing i do not understand: why is it not possible to use animated GIFs with transparency as an icon or a hotspot? I mean it works well with all browsers and mobile devices, but it´s waaaay too complicated to create your own icons with the old XML and template copy/paste method: ... m_hotspots

Would it be possible to make it more simple?

Thank You and kind regards

It's because they are not universally supported in the HTML5 player in each browser that support was removed completely. Depending on the browser, the image could be animated (chrome), only animate when the scene was in movement (firefox) not animate at all (other browsers).

The only safe way to have animated icons for hotspots is to animate them in xml.
