Can someone point me in the direction of how to make an animated sig using video clips? like the one Jackthe hammer has. Do you use imageready?

Ah, boo. I know this tutorial which basically explains it all, but I have no clue where I can find it. I think Sephiroth once gave it to me. I'll try to explain it - this is from what I remember, it might not be totally correct -.

Basically you can get partial movies into your sig with copying frames into your imageready. It's best to have a movie in QuickTime (*.MOV), mostly used to show trailers. What you do is this. Open the movie. Decide what part you want. You can navigate per frame with the arrow keys, so navigate where you want to begin. And, Print-Screen, and Paste into your Adobe Photoshop. Press your arrowkey - this forwards one frame - and PrintScreen again. (In another layer, of course) Etc. Etc. Then, as you have your whole screen Pasted down, you cut the part you want out.

It's very much work, but that's how I thought you could do it.

NOTE: Since QuickTime 7 has been released, I think it has better quality - and more frames per second. Therefore, if you use QuickTime 7, you get muchos more frames! So you might skip some frames.

NOTE 2: make sure the part of the movie you've selected isn't too long, as it's much work, and will make a HUGE signature filesize-wise.

Hope that helped?

Well, thank you griffin. You get rep for the help. It took over an hour to do it, but I finally got my first one done:
