I wonder if I can use a GIF file for a ren'py VN. Is it possible? or an .avi format

Not an animated gif but take a look at the new movie sprites (.webm). Git is not difficult to convert to .webm and you'll end up with smaller files and potentially better quality.

I just want to animate the character, not the entire scene. Is it possible?

Are you seriously asking if you can animate the character and not the entire scene? Could you go over the Tutorial demo that comes with the engine to get an idea what's possible?

Look into: Movie Sprites. You can also animate through ATL, animation classes and somewhat more complicated UDDs.

I was just looking for documentation on movie sprites. Thanks xela.
