  1. Things I think my older kids could do in Paint.NET (they're 6 and 8 ) :

    1. Use paintbrush and color palette, and draw a picture. Then run cool effects on the picture, like dents, frosted glass, bulge, etc.

    2. Using 2 fun colors, use the clouds effect. Make a new layer, and draw something fun.

    3. Open a preexisting picture and run the Shape 3D plugin to make shapes.

    4. Follow the "Scratch Its" tutorial

    Good luck!

  3. Okay. There is a room with no windows. Inside this room are 3 lightbulbs. Outside the room, 3 switches that activate these lightbulbs. You can do whatever you want with the switches, but how can you tell which switch activates which lightbulb by going in and checking the room only once?

    (No leaving the door open or any tricks.)

  4. Yeah, you're going to have to take multiple screenshots, and put them into some kind of .gif animator. I agree that it'd be easier to find a place with a smoother, less busy background if you can.

    I've tried something similar with World of Warcraft, which I assume is similar to Neverwinter Nights. There is actually a program out there called WoWModelViewer, that has all the objects/characters/armor sets from WoW and renders them for you, and even animates them on any background you choose (including transparent.) You can customize the render to make it match your character. Depending on the popularity of your game, there may be something out there like WoWModelViewer, which would make your life a LOT easier.

    I find that grabbing screenshots in-game do not make the best image files, so you may end up a little disappointed with your gif's quality.

    Good luck though, and be sure to show us the end result!
