Question about gif image and AWT (Threads)

I want to be able to show a gif image that spins (like a progress). I am able to show the gif image and it is working like it should, but as soon as I do some heavy computing the gif animation stops.
I have tried to somehow put the gif image in a seperate thread but it still does not work.
How would you go about fixing this issue?

If you are using so much processing that a 5K gif image won't spin, then the solution is probably solved easier with a dual-core processor than Java threading.
