    Animated snow GIF

    Level 7
      I am trying to create a simple animation of snow falling. This will be
      in front of a mountain scene that I have already created. Can anyone
      point me to a tutorial on how to create a snow effect? Flash doesn't
      seem to be an option because I want this to be a gif that I can tile
      horizontally across the top of a web page. Is there any way other than
      manually animating all the flakes over all of the frames? My other
      obstacle is that with each successive frame there needs to be "new" snow
      coming down again from the top.

      I'm having a VERY long morning trying to figure this out.

      Thanks in advance.

          Check back a week or so for Project Seven's Christmas greeting. They use
          animated snow as a background.

            Thanks Joe. I finally got it worked out.
