Sorry... Adobe Illustrator does not support animation.

Even Macromedia FreeHand, which can create layer-based or page-based
animations, does not have a way of displaying animations.

If you'd like to take a particular part of a movie clip back into the print
world, then you might consider opening this symbol for editing, and then
"Export Image" as .AI from there.

If you instead have a complex assembly of nested clips which you'd like to
turn into a static print design, then one way is to export as a pixel-based
image and then AutoTrace in FreeHand to create a vector-based
representation of the design.
