Hi Scott,

>   Anyway to pause GIF animation in an image or player?

yes :-)

To stop an animated gif (in an image object):
...
set the repeatcount of img "name fo gif here" to 0
...
will stop the naimation (even if it is displayed inside a button as  
an icon)

...
set the repeatcount of img "name fo gif here" to -1
...
will (start and) loop the animation until the end of time :-)

You might want to take a look at my "The taming of the animated Gif"
stack in Rev online -> user: klausimausi :-)


If you display an animated gif inside a player object, simply start  
or stop the player.
