Hi Peggy and welcome to our community
Let me guess. Did you click Insert > Image... to insert the animated .GIF? If so, this is why. Try instead clicking Insert > Animation...
Also, don't be too surprised if after doing this, the animated .GIF file appears to have taken speed or consumed about four shots of espresso! This is because the Frame Rate of Captivate (Movie > Preferences > Preferences tab) is normally 30 frames per second and the .GIF may be configured for 10 frames per second.
Hopefully this helps... Rick
Now that little bug is flitting around like a maniac!
Is there a way to slow him down, if necessary?
There are only two ways I'm aware of.
1. Slow Captivate down. Earlier I told you where to adjust the frame rate. Try adjusting from 30 down to 10 or so. But this could have adverse effects on your movie. Try and see.
2. Increase the frame rate of the .GIF by editing it in an animation editor. (I'm guessing this isn't very likely. I've run into very few folks that know how to create animated .GIF files.
