The fastest animations are made with Macromedia's Flash. They have
excellent tutorials but it takes a while to learn to make your own. You can
try it free for 30 days and it is fully functional:
http://www.macromedia.com/software/flash/.

The speed of the animation I think is best handled by stating the file size
so the user can decide if they want to download the animation or not. Some
animations use streaming technology so that you can view as it downloads.
You can have animations start with clicking or roll overs on the image
instead of automatically starting without the users consent. You can also
preload images so that they are loading in the background while the user
reads your web page.

Hey Tappers! I'm working on creating web pages for my labs, but they're
pretty boring at the moment. What I'd like to do is add some animations to
the index pages to make them more attractive. Does anyone know of cool
public-domain animations that I could use? Any other suggestions to spruce
it
up would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
Cynthia
