Recently updated to EE6.4 and now all of a sudden any uploaded filename.gif (GIF) image is manipulated and the animations are removed.
Example being, uploaded a 404kb gif with animation which was converted to a 101kb gif without animation.
Sftp manual uploads do not cause this so I'm certain it isn't a server/host issue. Also I know this was not the case with EE5.
General settings are set to use GD2 and not GD, also this server is running php8.
I'm assuming that when EE is creating a thumbnail (which doesnt need animatio) it also somehow loses the original file being uploaded and just uploads a the temp non-aminated one.
