The screen says: This is the Portal of Power. Enter your name and if you are worthy, you will be granted access. After they enter %username%, they will enter the questions. I'd like a swirly color-changing gif to run on this slide. I do not believe it will significantly distract my users based on where I'm placing it in the game. I understand your concern, overall and appreciate the warning.

Here are a couple of post I've done recently that shows how to create the gifs.

You'll see in the second post the difference between an animated illustration and regular video. The quality goes down a lot with the video. The trick is to limit frame in the looping, change the frame rate and fewer frames that run faster and you can preserve the image quality.

If you have a video in mind, let me know. I wouldn't mind playing around with it to come up with some tips.
