Animating..

Animating..
I've just recently starting playing around with GIMP. Has been pretty user friendly so far, and I've liked it very much.

I know how to animate text layers, but I was wondering how to do the same with pictures.

I was attempting to make an animation of a fairy for a friend of mine, having it 'fly' around the signature. I tried using the same process as the text, with no success.

Is there any way to do this? When I tried to blend and play, the old image of the fairy would remain as a new one appeared to the point where I got from point A to point B, with all the points in between remaining. Any way to solve this?

RE: Animating..
If you upload a copy of the xcf you are working on, maybe one of the guru's here can better understand how you built your picture and what is going wrong. But, what I can tell you is that, in my experience, you have to use full images, not transparencies, because the picture/layer does not go away in the next frame. I test my animations in that turn off all layers, and turn them on one after the other. This will show me if my frame build process is working as expected, or If I have a residual frame somewhere.

RE: Animating..
Thanks for your help. I have partially solved my problem. I am no longer seeing any of the previous images (I pasted the render of the fairy after setting the white background to transparent, each image on a new WHITE layer) However; after blending and playing back, my initial background flashes each time the render (fairy) moves. Having problems posting the .gif, any suggestions would be appreciated
