My subject line says the programs I use, and the icon I'm using is something I'm trying to work towards. Only recently have I ventured into trying to make animated icons, and the only one I've made [that looks anywhere NEAR animated IMO] is this:
I've tried finding a comm that hosts caps of various movies and TV shows, but I'm still at a loss for what program I can use to get
screen captures of my own. The ones I have found don't have caps of every frame, and it's hard to make a seamless animated icon when not all the frames are included [at least, it's not to my satisfaction]. Could anyone point me in the direction of a *really* good screencaps comm, or some other place, along with recommendations on a downloadable program to be able to get frame by frame caps in case I want to make my own? Oh! Also, what's most recommended for beginners? I've heard Quicktime is really easy to use, while others use...GIMP? And then someone recommended animagic - I still haven't figured out where that download went [LOL] but, gosh, sorry guys - I was hoping to be able to clarify what I was looking for without getting long-winded.
Also - I ♥ this comm - I've been a member for a week, and I've learned TONS already just because others have posted such helpful stuff for beginners like me! *hugs comm*
