ACHTUNG! ALLES LOOKENSPEEPERS!

Das Internet is nicht fuer gefingerclicken und giffengrabben. Ist easy droppenpacket der routers und overloaden der backbone mit der spammen und der me-tooen. Ist nicht fuer gewerken bei das dumpkopfen. Das mausklicken sichtseeren keepen das bandwit-spewin hans in das pockets muss; relaxen und watchen das cursorblinken.

Happy dudes are what I wish the world was full of. Whether animated or not, I would welcome them to what ever forum I was a part of. Why, you may ask? Well, how many times have you come across a person with an attitude or someone just having a bad day, did they take it out on you or someone else? Meeting people sure is a lot more fun when the person that you are meeting has a sincere smile on their face. So, be like the dude, happy. Smile, it's good for your health, both physically & mentally.

Its an animated gif. Use Adobe Illustrator. I think photoshop can do it as well. You may also want to look up "animated gif" on google.

Mind explaining why using private messages or email is better?

I think the OP had a fair question, although I would have addressed it to the board in general rather than anyone in particular. But it's obviously important to many of the [sic] regulars to display a powerful avatar, a true picture of their burner souls, and why not address the most burnerly eplaya contributor of all time?

Maybe you both should start an FAQ on it, instead of carping?

My soul is empty, needless to say, and I no longer wonder about anything.

True it is an animated gif but I seriously doubt that you would get the results you see in this animation. Maybe with something like 3d studio or Softimage, Xara, Maya, poser (even though poser doesn’t give you characters that Boolean that smooth and illustrator....... I cant imagine using it in anything in the animation. I can see Photoshop for the background.)

I guess y'all can keep guessing. :lol:

Something about GIF economy comes to mind.

Go here

You can find all sorts of animated avatars, including several variants of DVD's dancing dude, such as:

or

But using one of those might lack imagination...

Still doesn't explain how it was done. I don't think it was done with any of the animators. i think it was done with someone that was wearing a suit to a composite background.

most likely done in a 3d application with an image mapped to a surface behind the character. -(not that hard really).

Join the police force if you want to have control over others. I for one am a free spirit and will do as i please.... If you have nothing to contribute to our conversation (which many other have without the issues that you have and pehaps are benifiting from this knowledge as i am) than go fly a kite or something that doesn't represent a control freak with issues.

All that matters is that it puts a few smiles on eplayains and causes a bit of creativity in the minds to happen. (figuring out how the animation is done.)

That's all I try to contribute to eplaya.

Hello,

Currently just lurking until I absorb enough BM info to contribute (and also coz I can't go till next year, and 13 months seems a long way away!).

However, the site that Lark mentioned previously has a link to the software you can use to create those animated GIFs, by mapping an image of your face onto a 3D model.

http://www.reallusion.com/itsme/

$70, mind, but there's a free trial.

Apologies to DVD Burner, but he was the first to do it, right!
