    Default Animated Gifs for BBM Avatar

    I was wondering if anyone knows if theres are specific rules o limits that controls the possibility of displaying animated gifs on the BBM Avatar. I have found that if the dimensions are 100x100 and have no background the animation would play almost anytime. Im attaching 2 gifs that will work and 1 that will not and all 3 of them have same specifications. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I only tried the walking shoes. They DO NOT work as a BBM avatar. I didn't think animated gifs were allowable.

    They may work as your crackberry avatar but it didn't in bbm.

    I have myself as a contact on BBM. I've used all of them, they are all STILL (not moving) but when I click on my name on my list, as if I was about to talk to myself and then view the Display pic, the DPs are moving

    A friend of mine actually has an animated GIF as his avatar using the latest BBM version. File size restrictions? i still dont know, i've tried up to 100kb only and they have worked. They only show animated when the person views your profile.

    Its too big for bbm display the GIF image should be under 20kb in order to play on your bbm display picture you can edit it on CS5 but you will loose the colours aswell as the quality

    For your information. This GIF only can be use for BBM 6.1.0.25. Try to download now at beta zone. www.blackberry.com/beta . if you want to create your own GIF avatar. please create 32Kb and it must be in square dimensions.

    Mine works at 240px by 240px im using 5frames an saving the file as a gif no problem on enlarged view no animation on the thumbnail view. Even at this size bbm resizes it to the size it should be which means you can get x amount of detail into even the smallest of gifs if you are workin with Adobe photoshop



    And the Small one at 6kb
