This animated gif image was made with Mathematica 4 from a color TIFF image:

imagedata=Import["d:/tmp/CBart.tif"][[1,1]];
{yres,xres,n}=Dimensions[imagedata];
max=Max[imagedata];

g = Table[Graphics3D[ ListPlot3D[
Table[N[Sin[(i 2 Pi)/xres + j (2 Pi)/20]],{yres},{i,xres}],
Map[RGBColor, imagedata/max, {2}] //. RGBColor[{a_, b_, c_}] -> RGBColor[a, b, c],
Axes -> False, Mesh -> False, Boxed -> False, BoxRatios -> {1, 1, .1}]], {j, 0, 19}];

Export["d:/tmp/g.gif",g,"GIF","AnimationDisplayTime"->0.1,"Loop"->True];

Adjust looping parameters with any animated gif package, such as Ulead GIF animator 3.0, or Paint Shop Pro 5 Animation Shop.
