    How to import working .gif files into Flash (CS4)?

    I've downloaded some animated .gif images. When I try to import them to Flash and add them to the libary, and then onto my animation, they don't move, just stay still like normal images. Why is this? I've seen people import things such as boats moving across the sea in .gif files and they work in flash, why aren't mine? Please let me know! Thanks.

    Here, no there
    I don't think Flash animates gifs as with HTML. Flash is limited to the functions available in HTML, so the best bet would be to break the GIF up and import them as individual images and animate them within Flash.
    Some people are like Slinkies, not really good for anything, but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

    When importing gifs, make sure to import > movie > gif rathern than import > image > gif.
