Slide animation timeline consists of one or more animation steps. Animation step is a sequence of animation effects playing without mouse click requirement.

Slide background, static shapes, and shapes animated before the first mouse driven animation are playing at the animation step 0. So there is at least 1 animation step in each slide.

Each mouse-driven animation along with the subsequent non mouse-driven animations are playing at the separate animation step. In other words, the number of animation steps is equal to number of on-click animations plus 1.


There are four animation effects in the following slide. They are represented by three animation steps in the generated Flash presentation (click to start animations).
