LBA Animations

Hello, alchemists of LBA's meshes,

Y'know, these new animated gif avatars with transparent background:



How it was done, how can I do these too?
I'd like to make a full-sized one to use as an animated wallpaper (like having a rabbibunny who's a keeper of my computer, constantly watching me haha).

Thanks.

In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.

As far as I remember ChaosFish did with LBA Model Viewer or LBA Animation Studio. He took various screenshoots from the model animation and compose a GIF with all sequenced images. You can get the applications in the sticky thread in this forum.

THAAAAAAAAAAAAANKS !!!

I didn't remember it was a member, particularly *you*, who done these (they have been around for so long I thought it came along the other standard MBN avatars by elmuerte). Congratulations (again, after so many years...), they are so awesome.

It is a pity I have no idea how to put the space guitarist with the rabbibunny assistant together...

I'm sure you'll figure out a way.

Reminds me:

YAY!



I've made some more but they're too big to attach (above 1mb).
THANKS.

Tha problem with that model viewer is that it's hard to have just one plain solid color background, I've to improvise with the ground color, but then it's hard to get the right angles. But still, awesome app it is, cheers for whoever made it.

PS: I've used Bullent Screen Recorder and Corel Photo Paint - the first was freeware, and the second I've had installed already. I hate trials.

Cool!

I recommend using Animation Shop's optimization wizard for producing smaller files. [edit: nevermind, looks like you already did that]

Another quick tip: After choosing the crop tool, click the Options button in the toolbar and choose "Surround the opaque area".

Yup, but I was referring to Animation Shop. (before you edited your post)
