You could.

Why are your trying to recreate a site to look like it’s back in the 1990’s?

Short answer …Yes!

But… What tools are you using to create your animation? Do you have existing animation files? What file types are they? Knowing a bit more would help give a better answer.

Freeway (since version 1) has always supported animated GIF images*. If you have one of those (and as you note, they are everywhere, and just a right-click away from being downloaded by you), then just drag it onto the page, or draw a n HTML box and drag the image onto it from the Finder, or draw a box, choose File / Import, and navigate to wherever you saved the file in your filesystem, and insert it. It’s best to make the image pass-through, so Freeway won’t re-compress it, but that’s just a suggestion – a normal image, allowing Freeway to manage the data, will also work.

*Long ago, when there was still a Macworld Expo (and my hair was much less gray), I was at the Softpress booth, showing off to the assembled geekdom the magic of taking an animated GIF, dragging it over the top of a JPEG image, publishing, and viewing in a browser. Freeway cheerfully combined the two images (recall, this was so long ago that there was no such thing as a layered image – everything graphical had to be merged into one layer along with all the text, and cut up into a layout table) and the result was still animated. Un-check the “Combine Images” checkbox that was (long ago) on by default, and Freeway would slice the underlying JPEG into 9 pieces, substitute the animated GIF for one of them, and tile it all back together seamlessly. There were tears among the bepierced “web monkeys” that crowded around the booth, since they were paid to do this by hand, like animals, and now had more time for their hobbies.

Hi David,

I noticed some on various websites and I thought maybe they could be downloaded. If I were to try and create one I would probably try photoshop 3D but as I have never used it I need to figure out how.

Thanks for your help so far. Any suggestions on the easiest way to do this? I want to use Freeway 7.0 to create the website if that makes any difference

Thanks for the help,

Sandy

It was always amazing watching people’s faces when demoing Freeway’s graphics abilities. Just simply merging two images to make one was more than people could handle - not using Photoshop to do this caused a few brains to melt. The whole slicing things up, as Walter described, was incredible to some, especially as you could go back to Freeway, reposition the images, and they would be re-sliced with no further intervention. To some, this was a welcome revelation, to others it was some kind of witchcraft that should be burned.
