Thanks for the tut. Helped me clear some things but I still have a problem.

I've created 3 folders named "part0" "part1" "part2". Each contains 3 animation transitions. It's a simple batman logo.
In the first one it should go from 0 opacity to 100, in the second glow appears and disappears, and in the third one
the logo goes from 100 to 0 opacity. Numbers go from 001-060 throughout those three folders.

What actually happens is that the first part and second work well, but the third one doesn't even show up. After the second one is finished, it freezes and then goes to the desktop.
Now, I thought that it's happening because the phone is ready to start but some boot animations last much longer even after a vibrating tick I get just before entering the desktop.

This is my desc.txt
Code:
480 854 30
p 1 0 part0
p 1 0 part1
p 1 0 part2

Thanks in advance. In the meantime I'll play with it some more, maybe I find something out.

EDIT:

After a while, I haven't managed to make it work with this setup so I just put everything in one folder(part0) and in desc.txt only one line "p 2 0 part0".
Works like a charm now. :)

But I'd still like to know if my previous version could work.

You can get gaming addictives and crazy folks will be glad to know about the special gaming feature added to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is Open GL ES 3.0. This feature will turn them in to a new lively gaming experiencing they never had on Nexus or any other device before it

Recovery flashable .zip for bootanimation.zip

I uploaded the files here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=45046124&postcount=1955

So, once you replaced the bootanimation.zip in the file, it will flash the bootanimation.zip to /system/media/ WITH proper permissions.

It also copies the file 60-bootanimation.sh (which I made) to /system/addon.d/, which is used by custom ROMs like CM10.2 to keep your gapps from erasing when flashing a new ROM or updates like nightlies. This means you don't have to keep reapplying your boot animation after every flash.

I have also included a flashable zip to remove the .sh file, which will not backup the animation the next time you flash and it will be replaced by the ROM's boot animation.

    How to create and install android bootanimations from scratch

    This is a guide which tells you how to make a your very own bootanimation and install a bootanimation on your device.
    Please let me know if you made a bootanimation using this method so that every bootanimation made using this method can be posted here



    Code:
    #This guide assumes that you are windows user and have - 
      1- 7 zip or winrar installed
      2- a image editing software (for ex-photoshop)  #

    Bootanimation- what is it ?

    Bootanimation basically is a collection of .png pictures that are projected on the screen one after the other quickly so that it looks like a animation , stored in a zip file

    Prerequisites

    1-you need a bootanimation.zip file [you can find them on google]

    now if you have downloaded the bootanimation.zip file ,open it up

    2- as you can see in the picture you find some folders in it named
    Code:
    "part0"    "part1"    "part2"
    and a desc.txt file .

    d17e80fd.png


    EXPLANATIONS
    folders like part0;part1,etc. STORE .png pictures of bootnaimation
    the desc.txt file contains all the necessary info to run bootanimation like resolution fps ,etc

    EXPLANATION OF desc.txt

    2cfbc55c.png


    Code:
    As you can see in the image
       #1-it is the resolution of the bootanimation(you should basically use your device's resolution for ex - in the pic it is 320X480)
       #2-it is the fps(frames per second) of your bootanimation [higher the no. faster will your bootanimation play [B]a standard fps should be 30[/B]]
       #3-these are the folders which contain images for your bootanimation
       #4-it is a pointer to tell it to look at new commands
       #5-specifies the no. of times this section of bootanimation will play ( 0 means infinite)
       #6-defines pause in seconds before repeating or moving on next line (o means no pause 10 means 10 sec pause)


    Fire it up el captain !!

    we'll start making a bootanimation from scratch from here


    #1-create a folder anywhere put in desktop for ease,let's call it
    Code:
    bootanimation

    #2-open the folder and create another folder name it
    Code:
    part0

    #3- With part0 created, it's time for you to start creating an image. To make it simple for beginning we'll make a simple one .So, using Photoshop as an example, create a new image which is the resolution of your handset. [like if ur on htc explorer use 320X480 or galaxy mini use 340X320] (if u don't know your device's resolution google it

    #4-Give a black background to the image and take a image you wan't to fade in . paste it as a new layer and set the layer to 0% opacity
    so now you can only see a black background.

    #5-now save the image in your
    Code:
    part0 folder
    and name it
    Code:
    image00.png

    #6-now increase the opacity of your bootanimation by a narrow degree say 6%.now save it as
    Code:
    image002.png
    in the part0 folder

    #7-repeat step 5 every time until you reach 100%.and each time save it as image003-image004 etc. in part0 folder

    #8-open notepad and type this --
    Code:
    [B][COLOR="Blue"]
    1080 240 24
    p 1 60 part0
    c 1 0 part1
    c 0 0 part2
    
    c means that the entire part of the animation (eg part2) will be played even if bootup completes.[/COLOR][/B]

    Code:
    [B]change[/B] the 1080 240 with the resolution you are using

    Thanks to @cisza for this info.. [images will be updated soon ]

    #9- save it as :
    Code:
    desc.txt
    in the root of your bootanimation folder (not in part0)

    #10- compress it using your archive manager say 7zip ;winrar,etc.
    imp: SET COMPRESSION METHOD TO STORE
    or else bootanimation WON'T work

    congrats u just made a boot animation... and remember to share with us your bootanimation ;)

    You can also use boot animation factory by RD despotovski01 It may help you with debugging and previewing and also creating bootanimations ;)

    Installing bootanimations

    To install your bootanimation just use root explorer to put it in system/media folder
    if using htc stock rom put it in system/customize/resources folder (make sure to rename it the bootanimation.zip to htc_bootup.zip )

    1-made a 480x800 video,
    2-used video to photo converter (# of frames selected)
    3-used irfanview to rename them to image###
    4-created the folder.(part0)
    5-desc.txt
    6- used root explorer to paste that zip to resources folder in system...

    worked like a charm....:)
