I have been trying to install a animated gif into my page in fireworks and it keeps on animating the entire page, can some please explain how to do this so the gif runs independently. I have tried putting it in a seperate layer and a slice and it still doesn't work. Thanks..
Make sure that the animation is in a separate slice, and that only the slice containing the animation is designated as an animated GIF in the Optimize panel.
Linda, That worked but there is one other problem. Now the page is not animated but the whole slice area is. So what you see is my transparent animated gif
flashing along with the white background of the sliced area. Any ideas?
The animation really does need to be contained in its own slice, John. As you have seen, everything in a slice designated as an animated GIF will be animated. There's no way to get around that.
