What are you trying to accomplish
I’d like to add a video as a background, or insert an animated GIF. I’m apparently asking the wrong questions on the support docs on how to find an answer to this. It looks like GIF is not a supported image format to upload.

Screenshots or video link
Screenshots of your issue, or even better a link to a video of what is happening or what you are trying to accomplish. We love using loom for that sort of thing

Hi @ADCC! You can upload a GIF as an image instead of a video. Select the layer that you want to add a background to then go to the Style tab, scroll down to the Background section, select Fill Image and upload your GIF there.
