Using GIFs in GameLab

Is there a way of using GIF files in GameLab? I already know what is image() but it can’t draw GIFs. It would be extremely useful as you wouldn’t have to use animations in order to draw GIFs, and importing GIFs as animations in GameLab takes a ton of time.

Someone might need to correct me, but I was under the impression that .gif files did not work in GameLab.
