    Hey guys

    I'm trying to create my own Bootanimation, but I'm having trouble.

    I wanted to use my own video file, so I exported it to png sequence. I put them into the part1 folder, got the empty part0 folder as well, and I think I got the right text for the desc.txt

    The video is 854x480, so landscape during boot, but the images are rotated so the desc.txt would match. so 480x854 (the whole animation is about 20-30 seconds, tried different lengths) Doesn't work in bootanim previewer either.

    current desc.txt config:

    480 854 30
    p 1 0 part0
    p 0 0 part1


    I'm using a moto droid, with PEv5. I've pushed other bootanims, and they work fine. I tried the new leaked bionic one, and that didn't work though.

    Any suggestions/solutions would be appreciated!

    OKAY!

    since there was no reply, I started to fool around with the settings, the folders, and the desc....

    IT WORKS!
    Now if I could get it to fullscreen....but no biggie, looks awesome!

    Ok, found the issue, it was kinda obvious after thinking about it.


    I basically edited th desc.txt resolution to match my phone's, the desc will stretch the animation to whatever size you specify.
