I wish to create a batch of swfs, static gifs and animated
gifs. The swf's text value can be inserted dynamically with an XML
file so that’s no problem and I’ve found that the
fireworks data driven wizard works well so that is also fine.
My problem however is how to create a batch of animated gifs
with a different text value in each. At first I thought that the
data driven wizard could handle this but alas it cant. The wizard
can only export still images. Further more, the variable canot
exist within a frame, onlly the 1st.
So then ive tried image ready’s alternative but similar
problems exist - it can’t export an animated gif in this way.
It would be possible to use the fireworks data driven wizard to
export the multiple frames as single images bu then I would then
need to replace the individual frame then export each animated gif
Surely there is another better and faster way to achieve
this? Perhaps some clever batch scripting? Or another application
that can create data driven animated gifs ?
