What am I doing wrong?


Monday, March 9, 2009 by hallv5 | Discussion: OS Customization

When I compose some animations in AniUtil I get 'frame' creep - image seeming to creep across the frame from one side to another.  When I've checked the image for 'center' in WindowsMovieMaker the animation progresses properly.  What can I do to correct this?

I suppose you are using them in DesktopX Builder.

Go to Object Properties>States(Mouse away)>Animation then in frames box mention the no of frames.

The no of frames = the no of images you used as input in Aniiutil to get one image.

PS: Please don't check 'Scripted' if you have not added any script for animation.

sounds like you need to set the frame count in whatever program your putting the animation in. Is it a cursor, WB, what are you making it for?

Using it in "AniShortcut.dll' for an animated shortcut.  Some times they work with no prob; some times I get the frame creep.  All seem to be centered with no evidence of movement.  And the number of frames is only called for in AniUtil as far as I can see.  No need to set any thing any where else.

FWIW, I think I've found the prob.  For AniUtil to work (or, maybe, it the shortcut docklet) the images have to be almsot dead-on centered or else the 'frame-creep' happens.  Will have some 'fixing' to do since I had like 9 sets of images of 100 images each to get done...

Thanks for getting me pointed in the right directions...
