If it's really time consuming I could try and do it myself! It would never hurt to practise and if i'm just being lazy say so. Whats the best way to get the images out of the video?

i agree practice is everything but i just went ahead and made it.
i jus had to pick through and get rid of a few un needed frames
between the asus and the logo to shorten it to 105. let me know
if something is not quite right. dont forget to say thanks!

ENJOY!
Anybody else want one?

maybe ill put together a tutorial in a few days but, i use a few different programs...

i like "KMP player for extracting the frames.
(it allows me to get every frame for smooth animations)

then i batch resize and crop (if needed) with "ACDSee Pro".
(it does fairly good quality resizing)

then drop the frames into "Unlead Gif Animator" to preview the animation.
(it can do the crop and resize functions, but it does a shit job. leaving the images pixelated)
@nobodydj

Hey mate Just a request if that's cool,
The ASUS BOOT animation link would it be possible for you to Re-upload it please.

Plus the location to where you replace these files if am right is here ?

C:\Windows\system & it's the bootres.dll or something like that.

well this folder is empty for me, so are there Hidden file here ?
or would i just paste the ASUS files in there ?

Hope you reply soon mate

& Keep up the cool work, I for one Love it

Haven't seen nobodydj since he kindly made me this anim.

I still have it on disk (and as my boot screen), to change the boot screen use:
Download Windows 7 Boot Updater Beta 1 Free - Update the Windows 7 boot animation and text - Softpedia

This thread inspired me to make the boot video I have thought about for the last 3 weeks. I found a concept boot video 3 weeks ago that I wanted really badly, but there were no actual boot animation files available; it was just a regular video. So I downloaded the video, extracted the right frames, did heavy modification, and made a boot anim from it, and it works perrrfectly. Woohoo! I can see why you like doing this nobodyj Loops blue, red, green, yellow infinitely till boot

Franky it was a damn painstake in the ass! lol...

Edited master clip in Premiere Elements 9 to get the frame timing right so the loop animation wasn't choppy

Edited a hell of a lot more in Photoshop CS4 - had to remove text, crop, batch colored the according frames to the 4 windows colors for the color transitions, manually applied the smooth transitions between the 4 colors, then meshed together the stair trails in targeted frames to keep fluidity in the infinite loop, lastly feathered the edges and filled in black to remove the appearance of the animation being in a square. lol.

It was experimental but I found it so good looking that it was worth perfecting. I am going to submit it and an accompanying animated 'busy' cursor derived from it to Windows 8 blogs and maybe Microsoft will like it enough they'd use it.


Just doing it straight from a video is really easy though. For photoshop you can batch them with a single action. Make a new action, open 1 frame, and set it to record your steps: Set a 1:1 ratio square marquee exactly where you want the video contained, and then crop. Next, resize the image to 200x200px, and apply sharpening if needed. Save, and done.

Depending on if you want to keep the larger version as a master source you can batch them to save as new files in a different folder so you have the large version and the 200x200px version. I have a 500x500 source batch for this animation in case I need it bigger for any reason.

well here is my first go, not sure how to make it into a GIF with the free tools I have downloaded but if you have Win7BootUpdater already then you can preview this sonic attempt here.
