The easiest way to do this is with a picture object array...

(in form_load)
set objPics(0) = LoadPicture("Buttefly1.bmp")
set objPics(1) = LoadPicture("Buttefly2.bmp")
etc...

then in the timer event you cycle the images

Static intCount as integer
if intCount = 0 then
    intCount = 1
Else
    intCount = 0
End if
PaintPicture objPics(intCount), 0, 0

ue the animation control in Microsoft Windows common controls ocs
comctl32.ocx

add this before the code where you want animation to begin
With Animation1
AutoPlay = True
Open "c:\program files\devstudio\vb\graphics\avis\filenuke.avi"
End With

and use the controls "close" method when your finished. ie: animation1.close
