How can you animate symbols in ArcMap? I am not looking for anything complex, just a simple symbol that flashes or changes a little.
I know that you can perform animation in ArcMap but I am not interested in temporal mapping, just animated symbols.
The same question was asked in 2012 on GeoNet in a thread entitled Animated Picture Marker Symbol that received this answer from an Esri employee:
Currently, animation is not supported in the picture marker symbol.
You may want to consider seeking or posting an enhancement request for this at ArcGIS Ideas and I suspect you will have more chance targeting ArcGIS Pro than ArcMap.
