newt , was you who has a dog gravatar? I'm missing it, was hilarious the dog face!
brentcee23, like czar said, the easiest way is setup an sprite with all the frames you need and them place it on the canvas and set his first animation for what you want. It's a bit useless if you have a barrel with animation and want put more type of sprites inside it, but for static objects, it works great!
Also, you can change them via code, using the action "set animation frame".
