    ok then, I'll tell you how.
    go to your third (3rd) frame, in the top layer, (this is where you'll have your animation) draw a play button, and select it using the selection tool.


    then press F8 (Effeight) to turn it into a symbol


    give it a relevent name, like button. then make sure it says 'button' as the behavior. dont worry about the registration.
    more actionscripting time.

    click the background, NOT THE BUTTON this is important.
    make sure in the actions panel, it says: Actions - Frame,
    then type this actionscript:
    Code:
    stop ()
    Now click the button, make sure it has that blue line around it, then tupe in this code in the Actions - Button panel.
    Code:
    on (release) {
    play ()
    }
    and you are officially done with your button! big ups to ya'
    create a new blank keyframe in the top layer, and import your .gif into it by going: file/import/import to stage.
    or by pressing ctrl+R.
    (remember, this tutorial is for importing .gifs from pivot, if you want to animate with flash, I can't help you. sorry.)
    anyways, import your .gif into frame four (4). find out the size of your animation, and go to modify/document...

    you can type in the size, in pixels, of your animation and flash will fit the window into your ani.
    you can also change your frame rate (fps) here, but most people don't know exactly what FPS to put it at, so at any time you can click the background and go to the properties panel to change it.

    and by now you're pretty much done with your animation, if you made it in pivot that is.
