Default [BOOT] Helix Animations, Fuchsia Shutdown added[UPDATED 4/5/11]

Finished this series of colors for this boot. Going to take a little break from this series to work on a different type of animation and look more into resolution vs. fps stuff. Enjoy!

New: I added a fuchsia shutdown animation by request. Not much of a helix on this one, more messing with what kind of fancy loopage I could get out of the streaks. Sorry it took so long! Life...perpetually in the way of things.

I was able to get a 47 MB series of files down to 12 MB at 90% resolution and still it was far too slow. The thing that perplexes me is that even 65% resolution is still far too slow and in fact is not much faster than 90% or 100%, but at 50% it basically goes at the intended speed. If there is anybody knowledgeable about crushing PNGs while not sacrificing too much resolution, or maybe has better insight into how the bootanimation.zip is actually read, please let me know.

EDITS:
4/5/11: Added Helix Fuchsia Shutdown
4/1/11: Added Helix Fuchsia Boot.
3/28/11: Added Helix Red Shutdown.
3/27/11: Added Helix Green Shutdown.
3/26/11: Added Helix Red Boot.
Added Helix Green Boot.
Updated Helix Green to slightly higher res (half res)
3/23/11: Added Helix shutdown animation.

About Flashing Shutdown Animations:
Shutdown animation exists as a sequence of PNG files in /system/media/video/shutdown so this zip will simply copy the image files there. HOWEVER, since this is not simply replacing one file like the boot animation, if you currently have a shutdown animation this zip you should delete the folder using your root accessible file manager of choice (unsolicited advertisement: Root Explorer does very well with read/write permissions and is totally worth the purchase) or adb the folder out of there. If you flash over an existing PNG sequence it may be prone to weird flashing and stuttering.

DISCLAIMER: ALWAYS have a backup of your system BEFORE you flash. I am not responsible for anything bad happening to your phone should you choose to flash these files.

These zips are flashable in CWM3.0+ (edify scripts). It wipes the cache so your first boot might be a bit long.

I actually don't know if edify zips work in 2.5. I feel like I've heard of some version of CWM 2.5 that could flash them, but I've never actually tried as I went to 3.0 some time ago. However, if you like you can just pull the bootanimation.zip file out of Helix Boot.zip and either adb push it or use a root explorer to copy it to your appropriate system directory. Speaking of which (hijacking my own thread here), are all the Epic kernels out there now in agreement for using /system/media for custom boot animation? I should've said I've only tried it on Bonsai 3.0.1 as I haven't made the leap to 4.0.0 yet but I assume they haven't changed that.
