I love animated GIFs. Could it be possible to have support for animated GIFs on the lock screen?

Possible Solution 1:
First idea: The animation should run only on lock screen, all other screens should display the last frame (or the first?). But there are (currently) no GIFs out there in 540x1600, how to fill the rest of the screen? A static image as background (how to configure this? Multiple input fields for an "ambiance type" "Animated GIF") and centering the GIF? The font colors for the ambiance should then be calculated out of the static image.

This leads to:

Possible Solution 2 (more general):

What do you think?

please separate those features into two questions

I separated both features, "Solution 2" is now a separate request.

I’d prefer timed or scheduled ambiences. I guess it’s on the roadmap.
