If you have an app that can edit animated GIFs, open it there and see if the
frame is rate is 0 (or thereabouts).  You can resave it to the timing you
want.  Otherwise, set the repeatCount of the GIF in Rev to 0 and use your
own timing to control the GIF, incrementing the currentFrame using whatever
speed is desired.
