Animations are really simple. There is no reason why everyone can't have a go this week.

It can be about anything you want, but no Youtube videos and no ripping of existing gifs. Try to keep it within GTAF filesize limits, I won't mind if anyone goes a little over though.

 

You can use any program you want, Photoshop users will have ImageReady already on their system, if you don't then here is a list of free animation software.

 

Remember you can (and probably should) start off in another program before moving onto the animation part. Most animation programs are restrictive and should only be used to actually animate.

 

If anyone can recommend any software or tutorials, please do so, and I'll update this post.

These are pretty simple, but once you get a good grasp of the basics and a cool sig idea then you can make whatever you want.

 

Deadline is Sunday, 14th of July.

Define 'A little over' please in regards to filesize. Are we talkin' like 20kb over? 200kb over? Because rendering, quality, and animation size really depends on this variable.

I honestly don't know if people would be up to this. Not a lot of people know how to/want to do animation.

Alright, I don't want to cap anyone trying something special, so I'll take that rule out. No filesize limit.

 

Antagonista, if you check out the tuts you can see how simple it can be. All you need is an idea. If you don't want to make the effort, you don't have to. Come back next week when it's an easier theme.

It would be more interesting with the 80kb limit. Might give a try anyway if something original pops in head.

Wow, that's a really cool animation. It reminds me of an old beeper that people used to use in the 80's-90's biggrin.gif

I just filmed myself writing "GTA Forum" In graffiti letters, and made an animation from it. But the image is too large to even host on an image site, let alone having it as a signature lol! So I'm out icon13.gif

Cheers guys. Would like to see more entries though, it really isn't hard.

 

tms_junk that sounds sick, how big is it? Can't you play around with the optimisation to get it smaller?

@junk, did you try hosting at imageshack? They normally have more space for files, especially images. Try them, if not.. dunno :\

Guys having size issues, did you run 'optimize for gif' in Gimp or whatever Photoshop's equivalent is?

 

Also, can I enter an existing sig? Not sure how this sig 'o the week works anymore...
