Default Hi there.

Hi, I am really really new to this Android live wallpaper thing. (the only thing I can do is to create images outta Photoshop)
The truth is, I've been struggling for quite some time to develop a live wallpaper.
I have been hoping to use multiple layers of 2D animated images which uses accelerometer tilting to make a 3D clock
These are what I'm talking about:

http://androlicious.com/images/Perso...on02_scn_0.png

http://ssl.gstatic.com/android/marke...67eea5085384f9

The problem is, I don't even know how and where to start. I really hope you can help tutoring me as most of the tutorials out there need prior knowledge on java, eclipse SDK and stuffs.

Thank you in advance.

All these were based on the Eclipse SDK , and Java knowledge , so you really need to start by learning the basics , I'm gonna link you to a series from where I learned these stuff ,

This is not the first episode , the series is 200 episodes long. Its worth it
