    You can't edit files with the viewer.

    Am I right that there is no 2000 viewer?? I heard that the '97 viewer was the only one available??

    animated gifs (offic)

    animated gifs (office 97)
    (originally crossposted as <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=acc&Number=71066&page=&view =&sb=&o=&vc=1>Post: 71066 </A>





    While I know that animated gifs can not be used in office 97, is there a way around it. Can I down load the 2000 or xp viewer and just add my gifs to the office 97 file then view then that ppt with the 2000 viewer.. If so where can i get the viewer.

    If you can't put the animated gif directly, you might like to try something like this:

    .Use an animation editor to edit the gif. There's one available with Paintshop Pro- Ainimation shop, which you can download a 30-day trial from <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.jasc.com>http://www.jasc.com</A>. This will enable you to break the animation apart into individual frames.

    .Export each frame into Paint Shop Pro as a static gif; save them.

    In PPT, reanimate, quoting WebGenii
    <hr> by layering the image in place with each layer of the image changed slightly and animated to dim (disappear) after arriving.<hr>

    You may have to play around with the timing of the frames. Animation Shop gives you the duration of each frame- you will need to apply something like that in PPT.
