Animated gif from InDesign CS5

Feb 16, 2011 7:57 PM

I am trying to animate 4 pages (of text and graphics) so they appear 1 at a time in an never ending loop in InDesign so I can export and create and animated GIF for a web banner.


The only way I have managed to do it so far is to group the text and graphics on each page, copy pages 2, 3, 4 onto page 1. Layer them on top of each other, animate them to appear 1 at a time by delaying the timing a second for each.


But I can't get it to work as a loop. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Do it in Photoshop or Fireworks. Those are the proper tools for this.

    ziggy - have you found any more about it - its ridiculous that you can have pretty good animation presets and create great looking flash animations that than you can't do anything usefull with.


    Bob - there are lots of other proper tools for this however i em not able to find preset animation palette in photoshop and i'd love to see how long will take you to animate words disapearing in a puff of smoke in photoshop. It took me 30 seconds in indesign. Also as i have poster, flyer, pull up banner design in indesign already with all fonts colours and style for the campaign why should i need to recreate the whole design in photoshop to make elements on the page fade, move and disapear in a puff of smoke?
