Help with gif

Can you make the background transparent?
the png's I made it from were but the site I used to make them into an animated gif made it black instead

also can someone suggest a good free gif making software

If you have the original PNG's with transparency, I can make them into a GIF no problem.

With what you have there, I can't make into one transparent as there will be edges that are messed up. I loaded it into CS5, and it's nearly impossible to get the original circles down right...they blend into the background.

I just see the GIF, no layered file?

A good choice is Jasc Animation Shop. It was bundled with Paint Shop Pro 9 back in the day, but is freeware now.

AS 3.11

Sweet, nice job...glad I could help out mate.

I got the PNG's, and will see if I can output a nicer edge/shadow version in a bit here with PS.

Well, going from nearly unlimited colors and full transparency to 256 colors and transparency from the 1990's is a bit rough, but here's a shot at it.




I used PS CS5.5 to make the animation, then used the Paint Bucket tool in AS 3.11 to fill in the black ex-shadow areas with the background color...effectively making them transparent.

IMO, no shadow is better than a crappy one.

Looks pretty good on all color background too.

You're welcome.

If you look around online and in the A/G FAQ's, there should be a lot of tuts on using AS 3.11 as it's kinda been a mainstay for years.
