|Duplicate Selected Frames Button|
Step 7. Duplicate Frame One. We now need to make the second frame for the animation. Click on the Duplicate Selected Frames button on the Animation Palette and a duplicate of frame one will become frame 2.
Step 8. Change the Text Visibility. Next we will make the warped text visible and the plain text invisible. Go back to the Layers Palette and click on the visibility icons for both layers.
Preview in Default Browser Button
Step 9. Test the Animation. You can now test your animation. On the Menu bar, click File > Save for Web. When the Save for Web dialog box opens, click on the Preview in Default Browser button which is at the bottom of the dialog box and your animation will be displayed in your browser. But as you can see, it is playing too quickly.
Sec Delay Button
Step 10. Slow Down. We need to program each frame to play for a longer length of time - one second will do. On the first frame, click on the Sec Delay button to open the Delay pop-up menu and set the delay to 1.0. Repeat this for the second frame.
Step 11. Test Again and Save. Repeat the previous step to test the animation again. If you are happy with the speed, close the web browser to return to the Save For Web dialog box and save your animation in .gif format.
