Tnx Rickhum.

 I searched the plugins and found them.

And WoW, 180 frames. it's  a lot of images. i think as animation fan, i always think how to cut frames and still get the best result.

BTW, there is animation maker of PNG/GIF with all the tools you need. here you can find them : http://littlesvr.ca/apng/

Cheers Shoshi; I haven't checked  the Pdn animation plugin as yet.

Mainly cause it doesn't handle jpg' though I plan to get onto it soon. 

I've used three layers for my stars with a different increment on each layer.

It took a bit of experimenting to get it right. The main thing for me is to learn.

Animation is great for learning particular techniques inc' blend modes.

The main starfield is a loop of 180 frames of different sized noise.

Thank's folks :-) 

Not so much patience Red' as pig headedness.

 

Thank's Pixey, I look forward to catching up on your latest work. 

 

There was actually a lot more than 180 frames involved Seerose. 

Animation is a great way to learn keyboard commands as mouse work isn't practical.  

 

Thanks Lynxster this is just step one.

I'm hoping to do more now that I've worked out the technicalities.  

 

Cheers Woodsy,

I use "Windows movie maker" which is a bit limited but o.k. for now.

I'd like a faster frame rate than it allows but dunno if other programs have that.

 

I need to put all my Gallery thumbs on one page but havent worked out how to as yet, any clues?

Hi Rick - Here is how I do it.

 

I have heard that you can drag and drop, but I've not tried this.

 

 

 

1. Go to Edit at the bottom of your first post in The Gallery.

2. I use Imgur so I copy the last 7 letters in the code and then use the Imgur button at the top of the tool bar, right, then enter the 7 digits.

3. I think you use P/Bucket, so if you want Thumbs copy the code for the thumb image.  If you want larger pictures, then just the image (IMG) code.

4. Place your cursor on the page and add the photo bucket code.  If you want the images to be in a line (I can get about 6 with Thumbs) then you will keep adding the codes and

    make sure each new code is closed up close to each other.  I will use curly brackets here as an example.  You will have to change the curly for square before you post.

 

 

  i.e. {IMG}http://the cat sat on the mat{/IMG}{IMG}http://the cow jumped over the moon{/IMG}{IMG}:http://theraininSpain{IMG}    -etcetera.

 

(You may be able to leave a space between those codes above for a small space between the images, but I don't use PB so am not sure)

 

5.  The software will know when you have enough images for one line and will then jump to the next line below.  You will have to hit enter a couple of times after the first line

     is completed if you want a space between them.

6.  When you are done you can view what you have done by hitting the View tab (shown in first example) when done hit Edit Topic at the bottom of the page:

Good Luck

If you're interested RickHum, I use a free program called PhotoScape for animated gif's. I use png's but it does take jpg's. It's a little slow if you use a lot of frames but the frame rate does get down to .01sec.. I've used it for a gif with 370 frames.

Thanks so much Pixey, will get onto it soon.


Yeah I've tried Photoscape Woodsy, not for animation tho.

The reason I use jpg @ present is to keep the size down. 

I save my masters in png and Pdn but the finished animation files are saved as jpg.

I have so many graphics files on my machine and an external hard drive that I need to be mindful of size.

I may have to check Photo Scape out again as Movie maker only goes to 0.3 ps.

 

tuvm ppl :-)

This a background I did for a flyer that will have txt printed on it.

It's for an opera being performed by a community performance group and someone else does the txt.

I was asked to provide a starscape with the photocopied faces coming out of clouds.

The original is A3 @ 300 dpi which is big by my standards. That's like 26 MB compared to about 2 for the jpeg copy I've posted @ 250 dpi.

I had to borrow my daughter's computer cause mine doesn't have enough memory and would have been problematic.

Yes, those faces do indeed look 'spooky'.  I just perused your Gallery again and I noticed the mechanical man - it is awesome!  Love the moggy in the bath too :lol:
