  • Gif question...

    I have some links in my header of my website that I'm trying to make more attractive by using a tiny gif file that adds visual affect. This gif file is supposed to work like this:

    When the user hovers over the image and or link, the image is supposed to display a motion after which the remaining 2 layers of the gif image are supposed to repeat. Keep in mind that the final moment which the mouse remains hovered over the image, it is not in :active mode, but still, in :hover mode.

    Can this be done? Have a gif that has only 2 or so images within the entire gif file only repeat while the others are cycled through only once?

    It's not the image that does what you want, it's Javascript or CSS or Flash...

    The image you set to hover is going to be your animated version while the others may be static. There's some issues with that though, animated files take up file size and may not be loaded up when roll over.

      You could do it with multiple GIF files and a CSS/JS trick but you'll probably want to use Flash. I'd advise against using too much animation on your site.

        designzombie eerrr wrong. You can do this quickly two ways. You can use an effect called "paint on" and literally paint a brush stroke over the script (say 5 frames per stroke). From there you...

        Not bad, I would prefer your counters be in the shape of the original font and not perfect circles.

        The design isn't bad in my opinion although there is still a lot that you need to do in terms of coding and backend - all of which I know nothing about. But as far as design it's not bad. The background...

        There isn't much out there because the industry is so new (digital, celluloid has been around for about 100 years). I'm a Motionographer and the industry is really a cross between Filmmakers, Graphic...

        OK I've concluded that the best way to do it is how I'm doing it already. Manually entering in. I have PDF software that I thought might be able to generate it and seeing that there are some Scripts...
