Windows 7: Custom boot animation on EFI system

Custom boot animation on EFI system

I want to make a custom boot animation because the default one gets pretty boring. There is a program called Win7 Boot Updater (Coder for Life - Project - Windows 7 Boot Updater), but it doesn't work on bootmgr.efi, which is used by my system.

My system was originally a Win10 laptop I bought like 2 years ago. However, I "downgraded" to Win7 because MS screwed up. Also, please don't tell me I wasn't supposed to do that.

When I search for bootmgr, there are two files: C:\Windows\Boot\PCAT\bootmgr and C:\Windows\Boot\EFI\bootmgr.efi. As I said, my system seems to be using the second one. Is there any way to change that so win7boot will work or can you change the boot animation manually?
