You can do the animation interactively in Gmsh (just press play), but
you can't save this.  Take a look at tutorial t8.geo;
http://geuz.org/gmsh/doc/texinfo/gmsh.html#t8_002egeo.  Basically Gmsh
only saves stills and delegates animating them to a specialized
program; fortunately there are plenty of excellent free tools
