As far as I'm aware, there is no way to accomplish it using the standard tools that are offered. But you could create a few images that have offsets, then place them in a new project and render that out as a video that would make it appear to work.
You would then import that rendered video into the project where you want to use it and employ the "Remove a color" feature to make all but the blue become transparent.

I put in 3 dashed boxes with 3 different sizes (10/11/12) and copy&paste them in a line. It gives the illusion of some movement aside from growing thickness back+forth. As I said just a silly idea and I just have+can afford Camtasia2-for-mac:
I wanted to get in on the action/fun.See what I could do.If you scrutinize this GIF you'll see the dashed lines don't rotate 100%.
There's a way to pull this off in After Effects flawlessly but I spent enough time on this as it is. This is Photoshop and Premier Pro's work.I'm sure there's a better approach in Photoshop as well.
I created two loop-able 5 second animations using the PNG format. The PNG transparent format works on Windows I don't see why it wouldn't work on the MAC.
There both red. One has a black outline on the dashes for better visibility.
There just over 500 x 500 pixels square and should re-scale to work in most situations without looking to soft or jagged.
If your interested you can download them here.
I can't live with poorly done animations. Especially ones I created by myself.
That's just the way I am. So even though Frank created a perfectly good animation I couldn’t leave this post be.
So I made a clockwise rotating one in After Effects. There I am in the image looking at my previous upload. I’m Okay now.LOL
If you want to use it great. If you apply Visual Effects. Add a Color or Color Adjustment you can squeeze a few more colors out of these animations.
