Gif issues

You know I think we ran into this before. Because LiveCode is single threaded, things like animated cursors and progress bars will not run while a single command is executing. I assume this is what you mean by a blocking call. Either LiveCode needs to support multithreading, (unlikely) or someone needs to produce an external that does progress bars, that you can interact with via code while it's running. When I put it that way, it seems a tough nut to crack.
