    I assume you mean sprites as a way of animating,

    There are two ways of handleing the frames, either each one has a seperate file, or they are laid out in one big gfx file.

    All it ammounts to loading all the files at once and displaying the one that matches the current frame that you desire. or if they are all in the same file you will have to 'home in' on the part of the file that holds the animation you are after. With opengl you would use texture coordnates for that.

    Look up Keyframe Animation
