    ATTN: .gif wizards

    Postby SandRider » 15 Dec 2010 15:24

    can one of you kids combine these two avatars,
    so that Frank fades in and out of the frame ?

    slowly, too, stays gone for quite a while, then sorta skips back in and breaks up again ...
    like the Lost Signal from Outer Space ...

    how to fully interact with people.

    I'm not sure how to do that but it's a good way to learn :)

    EDIT
    in fact I already knew

    almost there but I need to resize Frank's pic to match the size of the static

    using photofiltre's GIF tool makes the whole process piss easy though :)

    I could explain how it's done that even (insert your favourite dumbfuck's name) could do it :)

    EDIT
    that's the first draft

    The speed and frequency of the appearance of Frank's benevolent face can be changed.
    It's like a flip book basically, you chose at what speed the pages flip and how often an image is repeated.
    (see I told you I could make it simple so that even (insert your favourite dumbfuck's name) could understand)

    Let me know if that's what you had in mind, all the factors mentionned above can be altered to your needs :)

    if you find a gif of that blank point on a black screen that usually comes up when images flicker behind static
    (sorry I'm shit at describing this)

    I could add it for extra effect, or anything else for that matter

    The only limit would be the speed of the connection that will have to deal with it.

    Peek-a-boo Frank! Peek-a-boo Frank! Peek-a-boo Frank! Peek-a-boo Frank! Peek-a-boo Frank! Peek...

    I could do that all day! :lol:

    (Interesting interpretation of the word "fade". ;) )

    Edit:

    OK, a more helpful comment: Can you control the transparency of both images? Set it up with about 9 steps (you're using six now, right?) with the static at 100% opaque at the beginning and Frank 100% transparent, then just step down on the static and up on Frank until you're at 50%/50% in the middle and keep going. Play with the delay and you should get a nicer fade effect.

    Sorry to butt in, if you already know all this. ;)

    Static is just black-and-white noise, which most image progs can create. A few frames of that, fade in FH and maybe even add a few horizontal lines if you could make it work. Like lotek said - piss easy :)

    thanks for your advice, both of you
    I know how to do but I didn't know what to do; if you see what I mean :)

    Yeah, I think it would look better at a slower fade. Like the trying to get the station in 30 years ago on the old UFH channel
