Animations must be saved in GIF format in Gimp. 
Work with your graphic as RGB, then index it when
you're done so it can be saved as a GIF. You need
to tell Gimp it's an animation by naming each layer

frame 1(500ms), frame 2(1000ms), etc.

This is where you set the length of time that each
frame is displayed during the animation. Experiment
a bit to get the effect you want. 

Hope this helps,
