Vexcode Pro will not open jpearman GIF template

I am trying to display a GIF on the V5 brain screen, and after searching for a while, I found @jpearman’s GitHub GIF template. I downloaded it, and attempted to open it using Vexcode Pro V5. However, when I typed the name of the new project in and hit enter, it would not open the code, but instead would just jump back to the previous code. I opened up the zipped file and copied the .h and the .cpp files into a new project, but some of the files did not work to copy, and I doubt this method would have worked anyways, as some of the files were completely red with errors. I tried to get someone else’s code to use for this, but it did not work either - it had the same problem. Am I doing something wrong? Was the template meant to go on an SD card in the brain? And if so, how do I access it from one of my programs? If anyone has information on this or code they could post, it would be a huge help.

either clone or download the gifdemo repo as a zip file (then unzip the file).

use “file open” in VEXcode V5 Pro and open the gifdemo.v5code project file.

This opens the project in VEXcode
