I'm working with some archaic software for my company, basically trying to make an animated gifs show up on a jumbotron type pixelated display. The software only takes avi files though.

I have a bunch of gifs I want to convert to AVI to put up in lights but can't find a way to convert them. Tried 'format factory' from cnet to no avail.

Any suggestions?

Never tried that, typically people are going the other way, video -> animated GIF.

Here's a freeware tool to convert images to AVI. It may only work with static GIFs though, so you'd have to split up the GIF first before using it:

Then this pay program has a guide on converting. If all you need is AVI, then the Lite edition should work:
