Is it possible to upload an animated .gif into a prezi? I tried and it became a static picture. I like it better when there ar moving objects in my prezi!

No, it's not possible. You can upload animations in .swf format. Please check our new and updated learn page for more information on this matter: http://prezi.com/learn

Shouldn't the formatting of the stand-still gif's work in a similar way to the moving ones? Why can prezi support YouTube videos and not gifs? Is there any way to embed a gif similarly to a video or picture file or convert it to this .swf format (which I am unfamiliar with) that prezi can handle?

I make my own gifs and also find this approach very short sighted of Prezi.

GIFs are a STANDARD for presentations. Asking people to convert to SWFs or FLVs is shortsighted and presumptuous. You are losing a LOT of people. I try to convince many of my clients to convert to PREZI, but once they find out that animated GIFs aren't allowed... they go back to PPT. :(

Yeah, I wish we could get them, but look at it this way, would you prefer the amazing zoom, rotations, and everything else in Prezi, or a gif and (no offence powerpoint) slightly crumby slide changing animations?

You know, Powerpoints are only crummy if you make them that way.
You can make an amazing PPT if you know how to

Mmmm, yeah, true, but it depends what you want to make a presentation on.

Hi all,

my understanding is that because Prezi uses a flash player, gif animations will not work in the prezi editor - they will as mentioned above have to be converted in to a SWF file in order for them to work properly - they will loop just like a normal animated .gif animation. There are several image / video converters available which will do this task for you.

hope this helps

John
