    Animated GIF starts with rollover

    Donok Level 1
      Hello! I want an animated gif to start when I roll over it. I tried this with a swap image, using the "still" version of the first frame and then setting the swap image to be an animated gif file (set directly under the still image. Doesn't seem to work.. should I be able to do this?

          Export the animation first, and then use it as the image you swap in.
          Uncheck the preload images function in the swap image editor to force
          the animation to begin playing onMouseOver.

            Yes, it should work.

            Try making a swap using two non-animated images (the same size, but different colors). Once that works, just edit the HTML to replace the place-holding rollover image with your animation.
