Animate Your Userbars
Posted 23 September 2006 - 05:25 PM
There is no limit to the amount of images you can animate.
OK, firstly, we need a userbar. If you haven't got some you can make your own. I have made a tutorial with all the information you will ever need to know. You can view it here.
Once you have made some, open 1 up in The GIMP. Make sure you only open one, this is important.
Then go to, File ---> Open as Layer . . .
Select your other userbar and hit OK. What this does is open the userbar as a layer. Look, you can see the two userbars as seperate layers in my layer window.
Keep doing this to you have opened all the userbars you want to include in your animation. When you have done, go to File ---> Save as . . .
Save it as, "Userbars.gif". It is important to include the .gif, without this, the animation will not work. A window, will appear. Put in these settings.
A new window will appear. Put in these settings.
You have now animated your userbars. Nothing to it really.

What you do is duplicate each userbar layer 3-4 times (depends how smooth you want the animation) Then with the first duplicated layer blur it a little, with the second blur it more, with the third blur it loads.
userbar 2 (1000ms)
userbar 2 slightly blurred (200ms)
userbar 2 average blur (200ms)
userbar 2 very blurred (200ms)
userbar 1 very blurred (200ms)
userbar 1 average blur (200ms)
userbar 1 slightly blurred (200ms)
userbar 1 (1000ms)
That's what your layers dialog might look like. (of course you don't have to blur, it was just an example, you could scroll it off the edge with the second one underneath it etc.)
There's probably a more straightforward way but that's how i'd go about it. :h:

I thought he meant that's the only animation HE can do in GIMP, refering to his level or something ... well my interpretation.
Edit: oops just read it again ..... ignore this post
