As a general rule, if you have the factory ROM, or a derivative of the factory ROM, then "no". Samsung ROMs use a proprietary QMG format for their boot animations. You'll need to check your ROM's thread for possible boot animations.

If you've installed an AOSP/ Lineage custom ROM on your Samsung, then the animations should work.

There is QMG creation software available that you can make any custom animation of your liking.

There was a workaround to flash a mod via TWRP to allow custom boot animations like those here to run on Samsung but it may not work with the newer phones.

My experience has been that 1080x768 or 720x1280 are about "max" for many devices; 1080x1080 images would kill the startup on some 1080p devices (particularly, my N5).

The only "caveat" to scaling is with a non-black background: scaling a 720x720 image to 1080x1080, and pushing a white background in the desc.txt file will cause a discolored line between the junction of the image border and the background. For non-black backgrounds, I always scale full-screen images (720x1280) to avoid this odd artefact.

How do i push the background color into the desc.txt file? I tried just adding it as a third line to the file but it didn't seem to change anything.
Example:
1440 2560 30
p 0 0 RunBatman
#802222

As most of my bootanimations use the same color background this would make it really easy to port to different aspect ratios.

Thanks for the help, and thank you again for the info about being able to reuse the same 720x1280 images for all 3 sizes, it has inspired me to get in to creating bootanimations again, and to write an AutoHotKey scrip that will automate about 90% of the process for me.

Same line.

White:

Code:
1080 720 60
c 1 90 part0 #FFFFFF -1
c 1 0 part1 #FFFFFF -1
p 240 0 part2 #FFFFFF -1
p 0 0 part3 #FFFFFF -1
or Black:

Code:
1080 720 60
c 1 90 part0 #000000 -1
c 1 0 part1 #000000 -1
p 240 0 part2 #000000 -1
p 0 0 part3 #000000 -1
the "#xxxxxx" is the hex code for the color.

That's how you push color backgrounds. For the white or another other non-black color, if you scale (say 720x480 images to 1080x720), you'll get an artefact off-color line between the background and the top edge of the image (I think that's right).

Any white background images I scale are 9:16 images, usually 720x1280. Pushing a background color is moot in that case.

Got it to work! Thank you for your help. I created a new Calvin & Hobbes bootanimation that's 323 frames long using this info, and it worked really well.

You were spot on on the outlines appearing. It doesn't show up for black/white backgrounds, but for any other color i try it shows up which is quite frustrating.

Only for non-black backgrounds, and only when scaling. I've had them appear on two devices with white backgrounds.

I'm estimating that 95% of boot animations that aren't full-screen images have black backgrounds. For those that have non-black backgrounds, either:

1. Use full-screen images as we've discussed
2. Have the images not scaled while running (pre-scale them prior to packaging)
3. Convert the the frames to have black backgrounds

We're talking a small percentage of animations, and options 1 or 2 are easy-enough.

Hello, I love all these boot animations, but could you please make a black version of the FLRN-Stretched Loading boot animation, I love it but it feels a bit odd that it has a dark background, but isn't black. Thank you!
