    Make sure you have a line break after the last line.

    When you zip don't forget to use store compression level (zero compression)

    Both of these can give you a black screen

    Have you tried to boot anything yet?

    I actually used your txt file and did mine to 24fps. It came out good, but I think I need to shorten it a bit as its getting cut off at the end. Its no biggie though. Want me to put my zip file in this thread or I can make my own. I plan on making at least 3 more for the rest of the spiderman eras in the shattered dimensions game. Next up BOOT LOGOS. Thanks for your help.

    However you want to do it. As I stated in my first post, I want anyone to post here their own work if they like. There's not exactly any place to go for this sort of material and I'd love to be able to choose from other people's submissions as well as offer my own.

    I'm also hoping we can get requests going that will help fuel the creation of more animations and even possibly partial or complete themes.

    If you have any questions or trouble getting your stuff working, I'd be more than willing to help

    I actually started this thread because I think it's fairly easy to crank out wallpaper, boot logos, and even animations to some extent. I've been helping out making custom boot logos because they're quick and easy. One can only help out for so long, though. While I can, I might as well be working on stuff I enjoy while I'm at it. Boot animations take a bit more time and maybe technical know-how, but it's easy enough to answer questions to help others get their stuff done. The more people doing this, the more we all have to choose from.dancedroid

    Is your animation playing at the proper speed or is it actually running slow and being cropped before the ending?

    I noticed some things on mine that made a difference. Full screen animations, using the entire 480x854 screen, especially those at 24 fps, run very slow on my Droid. When measured, they actually tend to run an average around 6 fps (dividing total frames by time played from beginning to end). D2 and DX users stand a much better chance at playing those animations at full speed.

    If the animation doesn't take up the entire frame of your screen, then crop it as much as possible. Try slowing down the fps too if needed. If you're working with 24 fps video and use 10 seconds of it, that's 240 total frames. Your animation may play just fine, but if not, 120 frames at 12 fps may actually play smoother and look better.

    All that being said, I came to realize that my animations played much faster with sound. I don't understand why, but my first animations at 24 fps took 30+ seconds from beginning to lock screen. The same animations with sound added to them completed much faster, often 3 times as fast!

    I'll put mine up once I get it to play better. I've already done 3 versions. LOL. It's stuttering about halfway through now though. I'm still playing around with roms to see which one I like the best and then I'll optimize it for it.

    After doing some settings to my system below I got mine running smooth as silk. Its a bit long time wise (345 images), but IMHO totally awesome.

    Edit: I wanted to compile all my current animations to 1 post

    Good job man! Nice looking scene.

    I've been out of the comic collecting scene (buying real paper) for years. This Marvel Noir thing is new to me. (Now that I can read on my phone/PC) I may have to check these out.

    I hear you. I haven't bought one in probably 10+ years myself. I pick up a graphic novel from time to time. I truthfully haven't read the Noir myself. I've only heard about it from the new videogame. I like really old style things like buildings etc so it caught my attention. Next up I plan on doing a 2099 one (I have issue #1 stored away somewhere at my parents house), once I find a good commercial to get from youtube. That SUPER program you mentoined made it ridiculously easy for me to do this. Combine with Adobe Bridge's batch renaming its a cinch. I just use your same .txt document. :) :icon_ banana:dancedroid

    Looks awesome. Now you just need to make a C&H boot animation and possibly wallpaper. :)
