GIFs in Art Director

Do you think small / short animated Gif (example below) or videos will be OK ? I assume it’s easy to allow.
And if no, why not ?


Why not let users and/or artists also add link to homepage / instagram / band camp/ wiki etc. I know some artists have links in Roon, so why not let this also be a matadata field we can add.

Also it seems to me one can edit picture in Genre. It that by intention ?

Can you also explain if the album editor is only local or universal ?

The GIF idea would be a cool optional idea for what Tidal and Apple Music are doing.

If this is enabled it absolutely has to be optional. My toggle would remain off in perpetuity.

I can’t imagine anything worse than a grid of animated avatars on the ‘My Artists’ page.


I love the idea of being winked at by a deepfake Henry Purcell.

Would love this feature but I agree it would need to be optional because some people don’t like it.

An option in settings to allow animated art would be fantastic.

Be careful what you wish for


Yes this is indeed very creepy.

The ones on Apple Music are not, they look really cool. Album art ditto.

This was exactly what I was thinking about when I posted. These images are deep in the uncanny valley.

Reminds me of a forum I visit which had a trend for animated avatars for each poster. Easily turned off in the browser I used at the time (Firefox) which had a setting to let them run through once then stop. It is a terrible feature suggestion and must be made optional in settings if implemented.
