If the preset someone is uploading is animated like a particle effect or something, why not, instead of only showing a picture of it, show an animation of it. that would be very helpful in choosing a good looking one. biggrin

The simple answer would be because it takes up a lot of bandwidth and that there would be no simple way to create them automatically.

Realistically, an animated effect is unlikely to suit a wide amounts of different footage which throws the usefulness of an animated preview in to shady territory.
