How To Make An Animted Logo:
Things you MIGHT need:
2. Save it some where easy to find, for example "C:\pictures” or "C:\Windows\thecenterofhell\system\system32\system64\system128\???” although I don’t recommend the second one.
3.Open Xara3D 5.xx, press "Alt+T” or click on the "T” button on the
LEFT PANEL erase all of the text in the window that pops up then press
4. Press "Alt+U” or click on the yellow "U” surrounded in gray on
the LEFT PANEL, check the "button” box and select a desire button type
and leave this option window open you will need it again.
5. Press the "At+X” or click the black "X” on the LEFT PANEL, click
"load texture” in the pop up window, find the picture you made/adjusted
and highlight it then click open or just double-click it. Use the
"size, x, y, angle” sliders to adjust the picture or "texture” and in
the "button options” windows use the "stretch, corners”(corners, only
if using this option you can adjust) to adjust the button size.
6. Press "Alt+A” or click the black "A” on the LEFT PANEL with what
looks like to me is a half-halo with an arrow tip!? Anyway, here is a
quick rundown on what the options here do: (BY THE WAY TO ACTIVATE OR
"PREVIEW ANIMATION” PRESS "Ctrl+spacebar”).
A. Frames per cycle: This is the number of frames for each complete
cycle through the animation sequence. The greater the number of frames
the smoother the animation. The drawback is that the file is bigger –
this is a big disadvantage for web graphics. You may need to try
different values to get the best results.
Swing options: Swing 1 swings all the text as one; Swing 2 swings each character. (Buttons have a single Swing option.) Angle – how much you want the heading to swing.
Pulsate options: Pulsate 1 pulsates all the text as one; Pulsate 2 pulsates each character. (Buttons have a single Pulsate option.) Minimum text size – how far back to pulsate the text. Shrink+Grow & Grow+Shrink – only have an effect if you Pause the animation. These options select the starting point for the animation (maximum or minimum.)
Fade options: Fade in – the heading emerges from the background color. Fade out – the heading merges into the background color. SO AFTER PICKING ONE………………..
7. On the top left go to FILE>>>EXPORT ANIMATION or press "Ctrl+Shift+X” and save in desired location.
8. When the next window pops up (Export as animated gif save
location then options): Experiment with each one to get it right, but
remember the SoD rules about Siggys and Avatars.
Because Animated GIFs can be quite large, you may find that a 16 or
32 color, optimized palette per frame, produces the best results for
the smallest file size. However you might need to experiment.
Just Enjoy Your Logos!!!
