Hi Sven,

That's rather simple. To have a scalable map object that has a GIF as a background, use the following code in the "HTML-Before"-field of the Custom HTML Map Object:

<p style='margin: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; background: url(https://media.giphy.com/media/JIX9t2j0ZTN9S/giphy.gif); background-size: cover;'></p>

Just change the URL in the "background"-parameter:

background: url(mycool.gif);

Best regards.
