You can gain more control of animations by exporting individual frames  
as .gif or .png files with serial file names. Then use Thorsten  
Lemke's Macintosh app Graphic Converter [or QuickTime Pro (a $35  
upgrade to the free QuickTime) if you're stuck in the Windoze  
environment] to paste them together into a .mov file.  The drawback,  
if it is one, is that you get QuickTime animations instead of .avi ones.

See <> for a few dozen  
animations constructed in this way.
