VERY nice indeed! Did you work on each frame individually....or did you apply an effect to the animation as a whole?

Some guidance, Master Z?

Thanks! big grin
I opened the gif in my animator and then "saved as" individual files into a WIP folder. I then opened up the WIP folder in my photoImpact.

I used batch commands to color the slides and add the effects. This adds them to each frame.

The "z" I inserted as an object on each slide, made sure it was in the same position, and then "warped with grid" on each picture individually to make it look like it was in the flames. I then merged the objects, saved all and reloaded them in to the gif.

I saved the gif and then went back to photoImpact and messed with the colors and effects in batch commands.

That is why there is a progression of effects.

Chinese? English?

LOL!!!

I made a new signature for the boards and got the gif down to 600k, its 500x150pixels I think. I get a red X on it unless I already have the page with the file on it open. Dunno if its cuz the size wont load quick enough or what. All your stuff on the other boards Z takes like a minute to load the page with the "fun with Z" post.
Hopefully its just my freewebs site. I need to get setup on this site!!!!

It takes 4 or 5 minutes to load a page with all kinds of .gif on it.

.

I have a form of wireless it is the only high speed connection avaliable in my area And it is not that hot by times; most of the time it is just a step ahead of dial-up. But for those that are on a dial-up connection yes maybe we should limit the .gifs per thread. Or they might be all day getting what they need. Which is not an experience we want customers to experience.
