i have been able to successfully create my gif animations
using photoshop cs3. and then continue to import that gif file into
fireworks into its own file, and preview it in the browser, to
which it works as it is suppose to. my current issue, that i can't
seem to find any information ANYWHERE for, is that i have an
existing png web page that i am needing to drop the animation into.
once i do this, i am unable to get the animation to respond or
preview past the first frame? is there some sort of animation
nesting feature that i am unaware of.
i have tried:
-clicking on the animation, "F8" to convert to animation
-importing the animation first into its own file, then
copy/paste into the pre-existing file.
-importing directly into the pre-existing file
[there are 16 frames in the animation, and the total size is
around 116k, so it's not a large file]
can anyone tell me what i am doing wrong with this animation?
i would greatly appreciate it.
Open the frames panel in Fireworks and make sure you can see
the frames of the animation. Having insured that, make sure you
export the animation by going to FILE > IMAGE PREVIEW and
selecting "Animated GIF" from the drop down. Make sure then that
the exported file plays properly in Internet Explorer.
If it still doesn't work at that point, report back
