Where will the animation exist? In other words, in what medium will the animation be embedded? A video? A PowerPoint slide? A website? What?
If it’s for a website, hundreds of images inside a GIF will be huge, unwieldy, and take too long to load (if it finally loads).
Animated GIFs are popular because they’re easy to make and deploy. Other kinds of animation formats can get quite complicated to create and deploy.
You might want to acquaint yourself with some alternatives and what’s involved. You might end up not wanting to pursue it since you might find it a bit like diving into the deep end of the pool without first knowing how to swim.
