[TuT] How to make a simple animated sig or userbar!

Post by Slapzy » Tue Apr 07, 2009 9:25 am

K, so many people have been asking how to make a 'moving' or otherwise termed, animated sig. Here's the basics how.
First, select your userbars, or sig, that you want animated. I'll be using one of mine, with one of Veen's. (Hope you don't mind [V]... I didn't have any other ones on me at the time.

Image
Mine ^

Image
[v]'s ^

Now, to make it animated.... Like this.

Image

First open up photoshop, or imageready. I'll be using photoshop CS2.
And on the Finder bar, click Window, and select Animation.
There should now be an animation window on your screen.

Image

Now, Open up both the userbars or sigs, and copy the layer of one into the other. (Drag and drop)
So that both signatures are in one file.

Now, Go down to the animation window, and click, Duplicate Frame.... which looks like the normal 'New Layer' button.
So you now have 2 frames. Now, click the first frame, and make the top layer hidden. Then click the second frame, and make it visible.

Image

Then, at the bottom of each frame, is the delay time between frames. It should be at 0.2, click it, and change it to 2.0 (seconds)

Repeat with both frames.

Then, click file, save for web, and save it. (Make sure it's a .gif)

Open with your web browser, or upload and view on it the web, to see your simple animated sig or userbar.

Image

Look up and experiment with tweening to achieve other desired effects.

Image

or look at [v]'s sig for another example.

Good luck!

Yes... but flash is also $900... And nowadays economy, in most countries... being not all that great, most people can't afford to run out and go buy it...

Heck, Why do you think I'm still using CS2? $$....

That's probably because you're using some shitty browser like safari or something
and for the people who don't have ps and make it take longer to make it then it needs to. Plus it's png if you didn't notice

Couldnt have put it better myself...

I remember trying out the CS2 Demo. I was actually using a copy of PS7 off a flash drive back then. It was crazy with its animation and 3D warping abilities. In fact, I made this with it:

My first sig ever! Then I made this for fun:
