          It's possible. The way to do it is to create the fade animation first,
          and export it. When you open the Swap Image editor you'll see a feature
          that enables you to select a location to swap the image from. Instead of
          choosing Frame 2, 3, etc, click the radio button for Image file and
          browse to the animation you exported earlier. Note that it's best to
          uncheck Preload images in this instance. That is to force the browser to
          play the animation onMouseOver instead of when it is downloaded.
