Please add the ability to add text to my group animation in ArcGIS 10. I wish to display the names of the layers that are being displayed in the animation.

Hi. I agree with the need to simplify the addition of captions to the animation. To do it now, I had to create an annotation layer on a dummy feature and treat the annotation as a memeber of the group animation, so for each month i had a different annotation layer, well they were copies of the same annotation layer, just modified the text.

Found this post via a goole search, I believe this is a lot easier when creating a time animation and there is a window showing the step currently being displayed. It would be easy to add a similar option to the group animation, just optionally include the layer name that is being displayed at each track.
