CC2 and gifs

I'm wondering. I've noticed that CC2 cuts out the background frame in one gif image. The frame's filled black. Are you clipping it out based on its filled status or other? I've attached the gif I'm talking about.

Im having trouble understanding your question...
What do you mean by "background frame"?

I didnt write the showgif plugin, so i might be of little help with this :(
I do have the source code for it though, so can try to work out the issue.

Well, the gif has a background frame. Gimp labels the last frame in the sequence as the background frame. Somehow CC2 knows it's a good idea to cut out that frame. The only thing I can figure is it's excluding that frame based on pixel color, looking for a frame filled with the background color. Or it may be something about gifs that I don't know. It's not simply cutting out the last frame because not all gifs have a last frame that can act like a static background frame, and you end up with a partial animation.

I figured it out. I should look at more source before asking here :) I found "start" and "end" here.

Code:
[from01]
from="cc2_showgif.ini"
sec="gif-#"
opt01="idRow1=@02"
opt02="idRow2=@03"
opt03="xOffset=0"
opt04="yOffset=0"
opt05="width=24"
opt06="height=16"
opt07="start=1"
opt08="end=6"
opt09="delay=150"
opt10="filename=C:\\gifs\\intel_logo_ani.gif"
