:lookaround:

okay, this is sorta a request/ share your thoughts thread.

First, Watch this movie:

Now, I was thinking a .gif signature that has the last part, where the shadowy figure walks forward, and text scrolls across the screen:

Spoiler: Show

Master of Keyblade

The lost Two

Memory of Xehanort

Chasers

Keyblade War

It all began with...

{then the screen goes black}

Birth by sleep.

Now, here are my concerns:

-The movie screen is to big to be a normal sized signature, so I was thinking you could make it fit to The Maximum size of a signature.

-The filesize... ugh...:eek:

So... tell me what you think? do you think it can be done?

It's possible. But I can't be bothered doing it myself. Someone would need to get that in Quicktime format, have Image Ready, and Photoshop to make a decent sig with it.

Yes, you must first extract the video from Youtube. It will come out as a .fla file, you'll have to download a video converter to change that into a Quick time file. Hell you might even need to change it into a regular movie file, and then into Quicktime. I normally wouldn't help you, becuase I believe you should use your own google. But in this case I want to promote firefox, so I will link you to this Firefox add-on.

Hey, guys, little tip to save you all a lot of trouble: Why are you even converting? I would suggest using Youtube itself, pausing it every second or so, and taking a Printscreen. For me at least, loading an quicktime .mov into Imageready causes a lot of problems, so copying frames is my weapon of choice.

Copy all of your frames, paste them into a 1024x768 PS document (or whatever your screen res is), and then crop around the movie frame when you're done. Voila, you have all the aligned frames, ready to shrink, expand, edit, you name it.

-Edit- Just did a feasibility check, and it works perfectly. Pause, take printscreen, paste into PS, click play and unpause right after eachother, take another. It works really well, you will end up with between 14 and 20 frames. I may or may not take this on later, but I would suggest you all really consider this method over all that difficulty.

-Edit 2- Because I'm so nice, I went through the process for you all. 19 Frames, shrunk down to max allowable size (212 x 160). Slowed down to .2 seconds per frame. .15 might be better, but you guys can do what you want with it from there.

172 KB, not unmanageable for use in a sig. Saved Perceptual, 256 colors, no dither.

There's no filesize limit for signatures, but try to keep it at least under 400 KB (at most, you shouldn't need all that space to make a nice .gif) because there are undoubtedly those with 56K who hate load times (I know I did when I had dialup). And if you get extremely detailed, keep in mind that .gif will lose quality, so don't get really dissappointed if you work on amazing detail and lose some of it.
