    Here's a boot animation I've been playing with that finally looks good enough to share. It combines the Nexus boot with the Droid boot.

    This is part zero, before the loop:

    This is part one, the end that loops:
    [​IMG]

    The two parts animate together seamlessly, I just broke them up in this message because the combined .gif animation is larger than the forum allows for a single .gif file, and you can also see the loop part of the animation more easily. The actual bootanimation.zip file is cleaner than the .gif images animating in this message, as .gif files are restricted to 256 colors while .png files aren't. I'm still trying to reduce the size of the .png files, to make the animation a little smoother. If I can get the 256 color indexed color mode to look better without banding, I can make the .zip file smaller and it should execute a little more smoothly. (The desc.txt file specifies 15 frames a second; if you want it to animate faster, you'll need to edit it).

    Hope you like it!

    ps There are a dozen threads here on how to install a bootanimation.zip file, so I'm not going to repeat the instructions in this one. The bootanimation.zip file is what you want for your Droid; the attached .gif files here are just used for forum display purposes.

    I just set this as my new bootanimation and I love it.. I've always liked the original spelling out DROID part of the orignal bootanimation.. anyone make one with that fadding into the nexus boot, I think that would be pretty awesome especially if if had the droid eye like this one..

    I really like the color part of it.. not a big fan of the "eye" though. :(

    I'd LOVE to see this done with the droid lettering over the colors.. would replace my matrix boot animation in a heartbeat!

    Thanks for sharing this! :)
