Windows Opening animated sprite not as individual frames


Bryan Valencia

I downloaded GM2 (studio) yesterday, though admittedly, I'm new at game design/art whatever as a whole. I'm not totally sure if this the subforum to post on or if I should try elsewhere but here goes notihng.
I have a couple sprites that are animated. One is a character and another is a staff. The staff has 12 frames with different colors to make it look like it glows. Whenever I try to open it in Explorer,however, it only presents the staff as 12 different pictures, 1 for each frame, instead of as an animated staff. I was wondering how to make it so that it would show all frames as one animated staff and I could share that?

Answering this probably answers how to do the same with my character's walking animations.

Thanks in advance!
