    Whoa dude...that GIF is super tiny, and resizing it bigger may deteriorate the images...

    GIFs, although it can also be done with flv files as well but much more involved than extracting images from GIFs since they tend to be a lot less frames than FLV files...

    Definately need a larger GIF than that. The larger the better. Remember, with graphics it is easy to shrink, compress etc...but enlarging causes a lot of deteriation of the quality.


    If you find a video or animated GIF (much more preferred) just post a link to it or attach it in this thread. When I have time between 12 credit hours and working full time, I can work on making the boot image for you. Mbk, would probably beat me to it though. Lol

    A GIF is a file format for images, like jpg or png, or bmp, etc... you can do a google search for GIFs. Animated ones actually have a slide show, per say. Again, try a google search for "aminated gif" to see examples, or refer to the ones above.

    Not me.... this is your baby Shibbey....

    I just like to tinker for my own Droid. I have that DragonDroid bootanimation running on my UltimateDroid ROM now, along with my own personal custom theme that I only made for myself and port from ROM to ROM.

    I just liked your idea of using GIFs for the images.... had been getting many of my images from existing bootanimations up til now, with a few self created images here and there.... but now after your idea, I've been getting those GIF images and also now editing them further using GIMP... kinda fun and for self-amusement mostly...lol:p:D

    Mbk, I hear ya bud. I mainly do this to tinker with my own too. Just recently delved into rooting and modding a few months ago. Never saw the point before. I was missing out! I started this thread simply because it is actually a very simple process and does not take too long. Figured I could help a few people out that have been wanting their own too.....but time limited. Lol

    I am glad my creative thinking has boosted your creative spirit as well.

    So... the maximum size for these boot animation images are 480x845 (according to Mbk's earlier post)? Would smaller images cause any distortion or resizing or stretching?

    Is there a limit to the length of the boot animations?

    Smaller images resized up would certainly lose image quality. Distortion would come if the aspect ratio of the image is changed...for instance if you had an image that was 480 480, and you resized that to 480 by 800 .....

    Maximum length isn't really limited, but the more images there are the more chance of sluggish animation or most of the images not playing by the time your Droid boots up....especially on a part0 of a two part BA

    Well, I was asking if I used smaller images, would Android automatically enlarge it or anything like that?

    Yeah you can do that by setting the size larger in your desc.txt file......but doesn't always work right, especially if you have differing sizes or images are too small....but usually you can cammond it from that file.
    It's just probably better though to use a image editor resize, but not absolutely a must...

    The smaller one may be a bit on the small side, but could work out nice. Hard to tell till I give it a shot.
    The larger one would work just fine, but without any movement to it. I do not have the time nor the experience to begin adding effects for the nice animation part of it. If you want it as a still image boot up, then it would work just fine.

    I created mine just by extracting PNGs from different themes and APKs, creating some of my own PNGs, swapping out some APKs altogether, changing some hex color codes (which is basically unecessary now with UD since he has a settings menu for that, ...then ported them by pulling a new ROMs framework-res.apk and a few other APKs, and then basically swapped all of these into that ROM.
    I have yet to try and create a completely self created theme from scratch, I usually admire many of the things already put out by a 'Pro' themers and merely 'Kang' :p:D many of their PNGs, icons, or ideas...:)

    BTW HarleyDad... I have been entertaining the idea of perhaps taking one of the next ROMs (most likely UltimateDroid v9.0) I load and creating my own DragonDroid theme for it... not sure if I want to put in the time though, maybe.... I just tinkered with what I have currently and it's much easier to port what I have already than to try and create one from scratch as many of the talented Themers here do...
    Anyways, here's a simple look at what can be done to change the appearance of certain things...which is basically what theming really is...
