A little bit dissapointed with the new ODock v2.0

Animated dock???

Sunday, November 14, 2010 by DArnaez | Discussion: ObjectDock

I recognize that I let myself believe that was include in the promotion text "ObjectDock is an animated dock for Windows."  The first what I though was that they finally include the "Animated Shortcuts" add on by AndreasV. I have many ideas to do animated icons so I bought the upgrade to V2. But I was wrong and the only way is to create shortcut with simple png images. I tried to use a multiple frames image png but it doesn't shown in the list.

What??? I don't have that option in the docklets options. It came with the OD 2.0 or it need to install something?

I have just tried and mine works fine also. I also make animated shortcuts. You scared ne there for a second. Do have the docket installed in the Docklets Folder? I just right clicked, ADD Docklets and select Animated Shortcut from the Doclets Folder. I have OD2 and I have no problems.
