I want to make a 5 frame animation. I got five PNGs, named frame1,frame2,... and put them into the res folder. I then created Bitmaps, and converted the Bitmaps into BitmapDrawables. And then added them to an AnimationDrawable inside an ImageView (ImV). Here is the code. Unfortunately, all that happens is the first frame of animation bmp1 is shown. It doesn't cycle through the frames. Could I get some advice how to do this properly?
