Animated Stars

Post by AMK4 »

I wanted to do this just to see if it'll even come out right. So here's the first try. I took someone else's blue stars and played with them.

They're not continuous (in moving), there's a 10 second 'pause' in each.

Suggestions and/or comments are all welcome.

AMK4 - I like the idea, but agree with russ01uk that the 10 second gap is too long.

Well Done.

What you should do is keep the 10 second gap, but make each rank's rotate at a different time. ie. the first rotation begins at less than 10 seconds for some of them and then loops to 10 seconds after that. This will add a few frames but should still be small. That way everyone's rank won't be twisting at the same time and will appear random when a topic with many different ranks of users is displayed.

Yeah, I thought about that after the fact. I think what I'll do is shorten the 10 seconds a bit, perhaps between 5 to 7 seconds, and then try to randomize them. It would just add one more frame at the beginning.

Stay tuned.

Thanks Daz. I didn't see much in terms of animated ranks, and seeing all the different (static) ones you made pushed me into trying to start animated ones. So, if this works well, I may start doing more and more. May as well put my Photoshop skills to work for something fun, right?

I hope you don't mind that I grabbed the first set from your collection. :?

AMK4 - My only terms in using my originals is that people release them to the community.

I have made a couple of animated ones myself, but more choice is good - well done.

Oh absolutely. There's no point in posting here if I didn't plan on making them publicly available. :wink:

Can you add the words "Moderator" and "Administrator" to the stars?

They are great!!!

Oh, could you lower the word "Administrator" and "Moderator" so that they would not overlap the stars? I think that it would look better that way.

I could. The problem with that is that those two images will end up slightly larger (in height) compared to all the other ones. If that's not a problem for you, sure.

(However, moving then lower means I may be able to use the same colors and not have to worry about a contrast issue with the stars themselves.)
