A how to guide for making animations or how to make the animation into a boot animation? Ask your questions and I will answer them for you.

Here is something you asked about earlier that I came across.

You have to be the judge of what looks good at what fps. If I make my own then I try to render it out at 15fps to keep the file size down. If playing with video then 24 or 30fps would look better but again you don't want to have a massive file for a boot animation. You have to be the judge of the timing for play through. You can have one or two folders in your boot animation and the text document will change depending on what you want. As an example, in this text document I would have two folders, part0 and part1, and it would read as follows, "480 800 15p 1 0 part0p 0 0 part1". This is stating the size, then frames per second, then part, play through first folder once with no pause, and then play the frames in the second folder set infinitely, (first "0" in 0 0 part1), until the phone boots. A "1" would be play through once. The second "0" tells it that there is no pause whereas for example if I changed it to "0 10 part1" I am telling it to pause the time it takes to play 10 frames before starting to play the next set. I hope that is not too confusing.

For boot and down animations only use 8 bit png file format. The system will not play anything else. Also when creating the zip file do not use any compression. You can use programs such as 7-zip or Winrar and set compression method to "Store".

Yes, they can be changed in bulk and an mp4 can be converted to a png image sequence. It really depends on what software you have. What are you trying to use to convert them? Do you also have the png's already or not yet.

Wolf - let me hand it to you pal. You most certainly are the bees knees when it comes to helping someone out. If everything pans out, I will be getting a hold of a laptop today, err, a lap, since there is no top. But I have a screen and can hopefully get everything running and put something worthwhile up. Just couldn't help but think Killer Job. In case you never hear it, or not enough - Great Great job and keep rockin it out.

I will be there ONE day.......
