Animated GIF

This tutorial will show you how to create an animation like the one pictured here and save it as an animated GIF. This animation uses a simple moving shape, but the same principles apply to any type of animation.


Animations are created using layers. There are two things you need to do:

  1. Create a series of layers which will become the frames of the animation.
  2. Use the Animation palette to create frames and animate them.
