As you can see i could get all 3 panel to be view on the screenn
I eventually overcame the problem using a new tool to me called the mask tool, essentially it allows you to crop a piece of animation so you can tell it which parts you want to be seen.
Now i could show all 3 of animation panels in the same screen
I like this, however i want a delay on each animation so one gun goes off right after the other.
to do this i inserted the first image of the animation at the beginning and made it run slightly longer as i went down the panels, this meant the top panel's animation started first then middle then bottom, to make sure each panel didn't turn to black i added the last frame on the end to run to end.
Im really happy with the finally result really bring it to life
