Chapter 12. DHTML > Animation with the Timeline

Animation with the Timeline

You have the capability when using DHTML to animate layers. This can go far beyond a simple layer moving from one side of the document to another; in fact, you can create entire Web presentations using layers. You can even incorporate Dreamweaver's JavaScript behaviors into the timeline. This can be a nice alternative to other technologies that might require a plug-in. Before getting any deeper into this chapter, be sure to have a strong understanding of layers and how they work. If you're not completely clear about how layers work, refer to Chapter 11, “Layers.”

Requirements to Keep in Mind

As mentioned earlier, animating with timelines may be a nice alternative to other technologies that would require a plug-in or ActiveX control. You should be aware of some guidelines when considering the use of animated layers.
