Chapter 16. ANIMATIONS > Previewing Animations

Previewing Animations

As you create animations, you may want to see how the frames look in sequence. Fireworks lets you preview animations in the Document window.

To preview animations in the document window:

  • Use the animation controls at the bottom of the Document window 44.

    Figure 44. The Animation Controls in the Document window.


    • Next frame or Previous frame move one frame at a time.

    • First frame or Last frame jump to the beginning or end of the animation.

    • Play runs the animation.

    • Stop halts the play of the animation.

    Tip

    If you want to see the animation with the Preview tab selected, make sure you have set the Optimize panel to Animated GIF. If not, the animation will play extremely slowly. (For more information on using the Optimize panel and Preview tab, see Chapter 15, "Optimizing.")
