Animate doesn't even natively support animated GIFs. What have you done? What does "heavy" mean?

sounds like you exported yourAnimate file as an Animated GIF, which means every single frame in your movie will be exported as an image.... so if your movie has 30 frames, you are essentailly exporting 30 images,... which can be a lot for an animated GIF, especially if its a large file (pixel wise) then it's that much bigger! 

 

Try modifying the document size to make it smaller, and deleting some frames in your Animate file so the GIF doesnt have so many frames. Personally I think Photohshop is better for Animated GIFs since you can control the timing of each frame, and you can optimize the file on export. So you could also try exporting frames from Animate, and putting them together in Photoshop... or try simply opening the GIF in Photoshop, scaling it down in size, and deleting some frames and since if that helps.

I have a presentation of the company where I import some GIFs of our products. But when generating the html that happens, several images.

Adobe Animate was supposed to work just like the old Adobe Flash, where it could import SWF.

Hello,

 

your last message was not so clear. "But when generating the html that happens, several images."??

 

You mentioned Animated GIFS, and then you mention SWF, two totally different things. SWF can't be used since no browsers support the plug-in that it used to require. So now we export to Animate to HTML5, so you really wouldn't need a GIF at all. But if you are using GIFs, and if they are large, and they are ALL on the same page loading at the same time.... then yes.... it will mostly likely download slowly and play first the frist time around as it loads in all of the images from all of your aninmated GIFS, which are assume are large in dimension and have a lot of frames so are also large in file size.

 

I would have to see it to really be of more assistance.

 

cheers,
