[SOLVED] Panel/tiled sprite animations

Am I correct that the panel and tiled sprites can not have different animations? For example, if I had different types of ground (dirt, grass, rocks) where I could just have one Object with three different animations (that could be changed with Events), as opposed to three separate Objects.

Correct. Animations only have exist for sprites or tilemaps.
