Animated gif frames can all have different durations. To make a movie  
version you would need a frame duration that was a multiple of all of  
the gif frame durations, and each gif frame would have to be extended  
to last just the right number of movie frames. You would most likely  
end up with a bigger file that doesn't have exactly the same timing  
as the original.
