How do you insert an animated gif into a flash movie?

I have an animated gif that i would like to put into a flash movie. The gif will appear on a gallery page, when someone moves onto that page I’d like the gif to play.

Can anyone help?



Goto>Insert>new symbol choose movieclip as the behavior. Give it a name. Click OK.

Then goto>file>import>import to stage and browse to the .gif file. Then it should appear on the stage as well as in the timeline.

Now you have the gif inside a movieclip symbol and it can be used anywhere in the movie you want.

Just open the library goto>window>library and drag it to the stage.

Hope it helps :slight_smile:

Thanks it worked the trick!
