There is a bug in this code, since DrawMovie is being used to draw to the BackBuffer it only draws to the size of the chosen screen resolution (defined by you)
Therefore if your gif is bigger then the screen you will have parts of your gif missing. Simply render to the imagebuffer instead of the backbuffer.

Replace:-
SetBuffer BackBuffer()

with
SetBuffer ImageBuffer(animPic)
