When you import an animated Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) file into Windows Movie Maker, the file is played for five seconds by default. Clicking Play loops the first five seconds of the animation.
If the play duration is set to a lower value than the length set in the file, you may not see the full animation. To avoid this behavior, set the play duration to be longer than the play length of the animated GIF file, and trim the actual play length by adjusting the timeline.
