      You simply render about 4 to 16 frames of water ripples in different poses and loop them in a recording of 256 frames (32 frames per second for four seconds) then loop that into a repeating gif. If your in a hurry you can cut it to 16 frames per second like Jap anime but it can be a little jerky

    There aren't any here on this forum. Not anymore.

    VBulletin allowed it.

    Now we're on a new forum platform, and if you upload a GIF it gets "flattened." Probably into a PNG, which does not support animated frames.

    So:

    BENEFIT: we get a gazillion colors in our avatars, instead of the GIF limit of 256.

    LOSS: No more cartoons of the straining erect pene thrusting up and into the warm wet hole, or whatever.

    (shruggy)


    Now, question: Am I wrong about this? Are there animated avatars around, and I've just missed them?

      You are partly right but your point is still there.

    Shooter wanted to use the following for his Avatar, but he was told no, it was too suggestive for a porn site ...............

    Mine is a gif that should spin and looks cool when it does.....

    but the avatar pic does not support the gif format that I know off..

    so mine just hangs still on the first frame....

    Yeah, so I am right, I think, that there aren't any animated avatars anymore. I haven't seen one. I'm pretty sure they are being converted, and the animation frames are lost when that happens.

    Short answer: It isn't hard to do but they would have to install an image processing module on the server. The avatar and text box are fired (executed) by different command strings.

    It is easier to control the site without the function as it would look like a flashing christmas tree around here once it caught on. The old format supported it but no more.

    You could probably post a gif on photobucket and link to it here.

    There's a so-called "animated" version of PNG, called APNG. Don't be fooled. It's not an image file. It's a client-side app. The fucking thing even needs its own Javascript.

    GIF was the way to produce small, compartmentalized animations in a single file. And it is going out the window, because it doesn't scale nicely for mobile.
