It wasn't UA I can promise you that much, I had a little play just to neaten it up a bit, I'll look into some blue flames at a later point but I'm a bit busy at the moment hope this'll do for now...

How exactly do you use this ms gif animator?

It should come with a "read-me" file when you download it that should tell you how it works but basically you draw each frame yourself in a program like paint, and then insert them into the animator which sticks them together and plays them.

As with any program the best way to learn is to just give it a shot, play around for a while and see what you can come up with, you'll figure out much more that way than reading anything I might have written thumbsup.gif

How exactly do you use this ms gif animator?

405066[/snapback]

To use it open any image in paint (or any image editing program -photoshop, ulead, ultimate paint, corel draw, ...etc), save it as a GIF (you may loose color, pasting the original image over a saved gif sometimes helps) Then edit the image, for movement. Save each frame in a temp folder (click file, and save as. NUMBER EACH FRAME!)when satisfied with your animating right click the last image and "open with" GIF animator (you will have to browse for the GIF animator the first time) Add each frame from last to first, use the '+' button to add frames.

-The first tab is trial and error with the dither method (undefined usually works best)

-Second tab is for looping or repeat amount (click repeat and forever)

-Third tab is for frame duration. (10-20/100s usually works best for fluid movement, more for pauses, less for flashes)

you can open any GIF to see the frames and the 'inner workings' to get ideas on how to perfect your skills- Right click on an existing GIF and click 'open with' then choose GIF animator.- sometimes you may get odd frames (mostly blank or partial frames) these are from compression, or GIF images made with other programs.

Good luck thumbsup.gif
