I think Scott's already discussed animated GIF control, but in answer to
this part of your question, Rev supports icons of any size and full color,
so you can do this sort of animation with fewer limitations in Rev.

Revolution icons aren't ICON resources [since those are Mac-specific];
instead, an icon is just an image. You set the icon property to the image
name or ID to change the icon.
