Under Mathematica 3.0, you will need to use Display to create individual GIFs and then use a third-party utility to string them together. There are numerous free/source/shareware utilities out there for doing this on all platforms. Under Mathematica 4, you can export _lists_ of Graphics objects to an animated GIF file with Export. The option ConversionOptions allows you to specify parameters that influence the animation. They are documented in the online reference guide. Paste this expression into a Mathematica notebook and evaluate it: FrontEndExecute[ FrontEnd`HelpBrowserLookup[ "RefGuide", "Export" ] ] At the end of the entry, you will find a section titled "Additional Information." Click on the group open/close icon on the left to expose the information, which is arranged in order of target format. Note that ConversionOptions suboption names are strings. -- P.J.
