I figured I would share with the community since people are finding ICS a little tricky

*JUST AN UPDATE. I FOUND THAT THE BEATS AND VZW FOLDERS CAN HAVE ANY NUMBER OF IMAGES*


What you need:

boot animation creator.exe (windows program) get it at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1234611 (credit to despotovski01)
7zip (windows program) http://www.7-zip.org/
fotosizer (windows program) http://www.fotosizer.com/
some type of boot animation (youtube video, collection of images, whatever)
the stock VZW boot animation (attached)
file explorer app (root explorer, es file explorer, etc)

Steps:

create a folder somewhere that you will be working from
in that folder, create a folder named VZW
use fotosizer to rename the images.

USE THESE SETTINGS : Preset size - original, destination folder (the folder you created earlier named VZW, output format - JPEG, file name mask (this is important) render_720x1280_compress %NNN

add your images to fotosizer and click start. it will output the images to the folder you chose all named "render_720x1280_compress xxx.jpeg"
grab the "beats" folder and the "android" folder from the stock animation
place these folders with VZW
open the boot animation creator.exe
choose the folder that contains beats, android and VZW and choose next

HERE IS THE TRICKY PART: the settings have to be like this or it wont work

android - 1 15
beats - 1 15
VZW - X 90 (x can be as many times as you want the image set in the VZW folder to repeat)
width - 720
height - 1280
speed - 15

choose next and save it anywhere you want. The file must be named Vigor_VZW_bootanimation.zip
Place the zip on your sd card and drop it where ever you ROM has its boot animation (either /system/customize/resource or /data/local or /system/media)
change the permissions to RW-R-R using a file explorer and reboot


IF YOU DON'T WANT THE BEATS ANIMATION:

use fotosizer once again to rename your first 35 images to "Beats Audio Animation as JPG Seq XX" the same way as you did with the VZW folder and place them in the "beats" folder
you will need to redo the naming process again for the VZW folder
follow the same steps for the bootanimation creator.exe program

IF YOU WANT LANDSCAPE

Simply open the folder that your images are stored in, single click on the first image, press and hold the shift key, click on the last image. right click and choose rotate clockwise. proceed as normal.


you can also create a flashable zip (include with the tools and credit Mr.Smith317) with the animation placed in the correct location

(there may be other ways of doing this process, but this ways has always worked without fail)

Adding sound :

grab your sound file. it must be an mp3 and shouldn't be longer than 15 seconds
rename it to android_audio.mp3

the default.xml file in /system/customize/CID needs to be edited

find this line 3/4 of the way down in the xml file
<BootAnimation animation="/system/customize/resource/Vigor_VZW_bootanimation.zip"

add this to the end
"audio="/system/customize/resource/android_audio.mp3" audiostart="VZW"/>

the whole line should be
<BootAnimation animation="/system/customize/resource/Vigor_VZW_bootanimation.zip"audio="/system/customize/resource/android_audio.mp3" audiostart="VZW"/>

*notice "/system/customize/resource/Vigor_VZW_bootanimation.zip? thats where your boot animation is stored*

place you audio mp3 file in the same folder as the boot animation
change permissions to RW-R-R

reboot

the sound will start to play when the VZW folder images start. if you want to change this edit this part of the line you added

audiostart="VZW"/> to what ever folder you want it to start at

What you need:

boot animation creator.exe (windows program, attached)
7zip (windows program)
fotosizer (windows program)
some type of boot animation (you tube video, collection of images, whatever)
the stock VZW boot animation (attached)
file explorer

Steps:

create a folder somewhere that you will be working from
in that folder, create a folder named VZW
use fotosizer to rename the images.

USE THESE SETTINGS : Preset size - original, destination folder (the folder you created earlier named VZW, output format - JPEG, file name mask (this is important) render_720x1280_compress 0%N

add your images to fotosizer and click start. it will output the images to the folder you chose all named "render_720x1280_compress xxx.jpeg"
change the first 9 images so that they are named "render_720x1280_compress 001, 002, 003" etc
if you have more than 100 images rename them as "render_720x1280_compress 100, 101, 102" etc (the goal is to end up with the imaged names 001 to XXX consecutively)
grab the "beats" folder and the "android" folder from the stock animation
place these folders with VZW
open the boot animation creator.exe
choose the folder that contains beats, android and VZW

HERE IS THE TRICKY PART: the settings have to be like this or it wont work

android - 1 15
beats - 1 15
VZW - X 90 (x can be as many times as you want the image in VZW to repeat)
width - 720
height - 1280
speed - 15

choose next and save it anywhere you want. The file must be named Vigor_VZW_bootanimation.zip
Place the zip on your sd card and drop it where ever you ROM has its boot animation (either /system/customize/resource or /data/local or /system/media)
change the permissions to RW-R-R using a file explorer and reboot


you can also create a flashable zip with the animation placed in the correct location

I made a ton of boot animations a while back, mostly for the inc and EVO. I opened one of the stock Rezound ones up the other to look around inside at the files. Why are the folders duplicated? The one I looked at has 2 beats, 2 vzw, etc. They seem to have the exact same images in them.

Also. Which animation does what? On a couple if Roma I tried the.boot animation was different depending on how I booted. Doing a full power down and reboot was different than doing a hot reboot.

They only need to have one set. Not sure which one you were looking at, but only one set is right

I think fastboot uses a different shortened animation

Fastboot doesn't show any animation at all unless you full power off as far as I know.
