Default (Updated)(11-12)Create an Android Flip Clock in 30 Seconds

ATTN MODERATOR: If this is in the wrong thread, please relocate it. Thank you.

If you've worked on the Android Flip clock before then you know how much time is devoted to theming this bad boy. I've put together a nice "Action" that can be used in Adobe Photoshop.

This Action will do the following:

1) Mod the clock digit however you choose. You'll need to create the initial recorded action.
2) After you've created the initial recorded action, the "Actions" will go through 0-9, use your created action, save each digit's upper and bottom half using the correct dimensions on the flip clock.
3) It will also name the clock digits their correct name when opening the Fusion.apk (Based off of EVO & Thunderbolt) I'm not sure if this will carry over to other phones using the fusion.apk

All you'll need to do is rotate the clock digits upside down.

Adobe Photoshop Saved Actions

Change log:

11-12
*Added action to automatically cut and save the background image for the clock tabs. This way, you only have to create the background then run the action to export the two png's for the clock background.
*Includes actions posted on 11-06

*Started from Scratch by making the actions work from the root directory instead of my own personal directory which people were having problems replicating, including myself.lol.
*All PSD should be placed in C:\CLOCKMOD
*All PNG Output files should be placed in C:\CLOCKMOD\PNG_OUTPUT

Here's a quick video demonstration:
*Sorry, but my mic wasn't working so no audio.

At the request of another member, I've included a copy of the clock made with this "action." I've also included all the clocks I've designed so far. All I ask is that I be referenced if any of them are used in ROMS/Themes. Thanks.

Thanks! I've been trying to edit a flip clock for a bit now.
XDA is already at max capacity for snobs, elitists, and know-it-alls; don't become one. Always remember to be respectful, you had to start at the bottom too.

I'm confused on the whole sense thing. All I can tell you is it will work on the evo 3d clock, Thunderbolt and Evo. It was designed based on the clock in fusion.apk.

EDIT:

I'm uploading a bunch of clocks I made now. I don't mind if any themers or devs use them. All I ask if you reference me. Thanks
