Funny, I too have wondered about this. I tried several times til I finally just gave up.

Good question! I hope someone answers this.. sighs

Same question here lol

lil wrote:
1.) Camtasia your images and produce as .gif
2.) Open with whatever program you have for viewing frames, grab the frame you want, and take it to ms paint.
3.) In ms paint, use the bucket tool to fill the background color that you want to be transparent in.
4.) Paste onto your icon
5.) In your gif animation software and add the frame.
6.) Repeat

Sorry, a bit sleepy+sick, so that's the best I can explain.


I think I'll make a short video tutorial sometime this week or next week and show everyone what to do XD

You cannot put an animated gif on a texture in previewer or Create mode.

You have to use the animation parameters build into the previewer / Create mode (the parameters are the same in both applications)

Keef made a tutorial that explains animation in depth.

If you want animated pictures for your product pages or icons listen to lil and use camtasia.
