Gonna load a few up as I do the same as you and TWR them regularly. BTW I have looked at the sites you got some from. There's some great stuff out there. Going to make that video with the screen recorder WHEN my GF let's me. Starts rolling her eyes when I'm "playing "with my phone, as she calls it you working on any new stuff?????
Which ones? I'd love to add more, if you'd like specific ones. I'm very open to suggestions.
My goals for these animations are simple:
- Abandoned or "free"
- Scale well to the N5 display
- Are interesting, unique, and eye-catching
- I've avoided logos and device-specific animations (the exceptions of course are the Droid series)
- Nothing degrading, tasteless, or profane
- Fit withing the N5's 10-second boot time (from after the Google splash to Launcher)
Many of the old, old, JaeKar99 animations were for tiny screens and are like miniature postage stamps. They don't scale well at all. I've tried many, and most just looked like a disaster when re-sized. Some are also damn odd and didn't appear to accent the N5 or modern Android experience.
The DVDP, Admiral Potato, and Paolo Ceric ones are current and scale incredibly well. And they are jaw-dropping gorgeous. I've tried picking a sample that were unique and representative of the creativity of the author. Many from the same author are variations of an idea or concept; how many crumpled, spinning paper balls do you need? I could have a hundred or more additional animations in the collection, but I had to take a breather somewhere
