What are you trying to accomplish
For the hero, we’re wanting to use a GIF. The GIF file is very crisp, but when we upload it to Builder, it looks quite pixelated/compressed. Is there a way to use a GIF but keep it crisp?
(The pixelated GIF is currently in place as our hero.)
Hey Rachel, thank you for reaching out!
We’d recommend using a video instead of a gif. The web can stream a video, but it has to download a whole gif before displaying it – high compression on gifs prevents long load times, but since you need your animation in higher quality, a video block will be better.
If you need to quickly convert to an MP4, we really love this tool!

Hey Logan! Thank you for this helpful feedback. We’ll go with the mp4 video format!
