AnimationDirection

FilledSmallSquare AnimationDirection is an option for Cell which specifies the direction to run an animation which starts with the cell.

FilledSmallSquare 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.

FilledSmallSquare AnimationDirection->Backward specifies that the reverse order should be used.

FilledSmallSquare 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.

FilledSmallSquare It is the setting of AnimationDirection for the first graphics cell in the sequence selected that determines the animation direction for the whole sequence.
