Xmas animation for download (with source)

Hi, all,
in case you want to reuse (or learn about) Image Sequences, here's a snowflake animation.
SWF (Flash file): Click here
QuarkXPress 8 file: Click here
QuarkXPress 7 file: Click here

Of course it looks better if you add a background and use more than one snowflake... something like this.
I used this to create my 2008 Xmas card.

Enjoy!
Matthias

Cool animation.I tried to create an object on a path animation but the animation doesn't play.It only plays if I set it to "Click to Play/Pause." Is there any way to get it to play without requiring a click?

Hi Linkaq,
yes, of course. Just let it start by a script that's triggered by page entry.
Thanks
Matthias

Hi Jose,
create a script with an action "Play Animation ".
Define that script as a pgae entry script in the page tab.
Thanks
Matthias
