gif loading is too slow

Post by kifchan »

Great and fast program, but gifs...
Fot example this gif, ~12mb takes ~9 seconds to open in xnviewMP 1.6.5 (for test you can use any gif 10-20mb and more)
and when I come across a gif among the pictures, xnviwMP basically freezes up
Is there any way to fix this? At least make program show gifs as static pictures (or bad quality gif preview)

if its not possible to do dynamic loading (progressive rendering), it might be worth showing a loading progress bar (like in Imagine).
StatusBar - viewer - move position/selection to the right
