Continuing the discussion from Using a gallery instead of the template banner:
I can't think of any good way that would be worth the trouble.
Squarespace limits images to 20mb, even if GIFs could be much bigger.
For your actually pretty good idea, you'd need at least 2 complicated things done:
- Script to precisely change one gif for another. It might be quite hard to sync and it can easily lose sync because there's no control over the gif playback.
- Make the many GIFs properly synced. You probably have the files in video format first.
Maybe the best bet if you want to insist on going GIF would be using a smaller size, even much smaller than 320x200
When using a video there's no sync needed and no gif making process. And the script to use the video is also much simpler than a script to properly and quickly change gifs with precision.
I'd say the only real downside on going video is uploading it to vimeo, youtube or some good streaming service.
That's generally a tricky question. It could be as simple as less than 1h and just adding this script:
<div style="position: fixed; z-index: 1000; width: 100%; height: 100%"> <iframe frameborder="0" height="100%" width="100%" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/aQsy17K84Ls? autoplay=1&controls=0&showinfo=0&autohide=1"> </iframe> </div>
