    The "N" in this image? All animation is a repeated movement of the same image OR the fading in and out of the same image by changing the opacity of the image.

    The "N" represents the number of times the chosen image will be duplicated, to understand how it works I suggest this. Take 1 image and set the "N" to 2 and set the first image ("N" point 1) to the left side of the screen and then the second image ("N" point 2) to the right side of the screen. Play it, the image will jump from the left to the right.

    Then go back and set "N" to 5 and move the images (various points) to different places on the screen, play that and the image will appear to jump around.

    The more "N" point images the easier it is to make an image appear to change just slightly, the less "N" point images the greater the change.

    Hope that helps!

    alright so do I just go to duplicate image then? I am confused on how to get to the box to change the N value.

    Do you mean the box where you specify the number of "N" you want or how to change from "N" point 1 to "N" point 2?

    To specify the number of "N":
    1) In the image window select choose Video and then Duplicate Frames

    To change frames:
    2) Go to the next frame, each "N" created is a frame. In the image below the Frame bar just below the "RED A" is how you progress from "N" to "N"
