Chapter 14. IMPORTING > Importing GIF Animations

Importing GIF Animations

Fireworks can open and convert GIF animations into Fireworks frames. This makes it easy to convert your old GIF animations into new Fireworks animations. (For more information on creating animations in Fireworks, see Chapter 16, "Animations.")

To open Animated GIF files:

  • Choose File > Open and then find the Animated GIF you want to open. Click OK. The animation opens with each image frame of the animation on its own Fireworks frame 13.

    Figure 13. Gif animations import into fireworks with each of the animation images on its own fireworks frame.


    Tip

    GIF animations are imported into Fireworks at animation symbols. (See Chapter 16, "Animations" for more information on working with animation symbols.)

    Tip

    You can also use the File > Import or Insert > Image commands to import Animated GIF files with the same results.
