Hi LeighJor,

You need to set the layer as not visible when you define it and then use the timeline to change the visibility at the correct point.

If you have done this, post your code and I'll take a look at it.


DW has a basic layer animation function.  You can move stuff around the screen, turn things on and off, etc.  It writes some hella bloated code, though, which is why most people eventually move on to Flash.

If you can do flash, great.  More power to you.  The timeline stuff has been in there since at least DW can play with it and see it in MX.

You can also set object (image) of layer(with image to be shown  inside) visible at frame10 as well and ultimately rid yourself of the multiple layers. Your choice - can write the code if ya want to see it .
