annimation limited to 45 images/frames? really?

Post by johnmac »

I created 64 images/gifs to annimate a banner on my company website and can only load 45? Is this really the limit? What is my work around?

My company name is 9 letters, my banner is 640x120. I wanted to smoothly roll one letter at a time across the screen until I spell out the entire company name. This is approximately 500 images/gifs in all.

How can this be done? I "searched" maximum files and could not find anything.

Thanks in advance,

Are you loading the images via the Animation Wizard? If so, there does seem to be a limit to what you can initially load.

However. Once you've loaded the first bunch, just add the rest via the "Add Image" button. Image On the dialog box that pops up, check the option to add each image as a new frame. You can select the 46th image, the hold the shift key and click the last image to add the rest...

The other thing you can try is the Banner Text... Start a new animation, click "Frame" and select Add Banner Text. See also

Lastly, you can create a text object with GA 5 and "tween" the movement across your background image. Tweening by Position

I used far more frames than that in the scrolling message below this post.

thanks to you both, I couldn't imagine there was an image limit, but having no formal training after a couple of hours and not locatiing the solution I decided to post my question.

I'll add the annimation once completed...
