  • AnimationDirection is an option for Cell which specifies the direction to run an animation which starts with the cell.
  • The setting AnimationDirection->Forward specifies that the animation should run through successive selected graphics cells in the order that they appear in the notebook, and should then start again at the first cell.
  • AnimationDirection->Backward specifies that the reverse order should be used.
  • AnimationDirection->ForwardBackward specifies that the animation should run from the first cell to the last, and should then reverse back to the first cell again.
  • It is the setting of AnimationDirection for the first graphics cell in the sequence selected that determines the animation direction for the whole sequence.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 2.10.12.
