Please email vxl-users, not individual developers with your vxl questions.
We do not have a gif loader - reasons for this include
1 - Until recently it was still under patent. Or maybe still is - I
2 - As a format, gif is not much use for most computer vision
applications - due to its limited colour palette, etc. png is superior
in almost all respects.
3 - No-one has written one.
To work around this lack you could either
1 convert gifs to png using an external program.
2 Write and contribute a gif loader.
Sorry there isn't a easier answer.
