    Im making sigs now and I'm finding it to be alot of fun. The first one of Glenn was my third sig. The second one was my forth sig and second animation. The QB sig animates the "Three Step Drop". I did it for a guy who requested a western theme (Drover). Any suggestions on how to make some improvements would be very welcome. Thanks for the forum.

    I like the Glenn Sig good job. The gunslingers is cool but you need to slow down the QBs a bit, they switch a bit too fast.

    You are right. The frame rate is too fast however each frame must be created individually to get the animation effect. You are looking at 15 Sigs overlapping. I wanted to make for a smoother transition, but the time it takes to produce and the size of the gif is a bit restricting. The best result would have been 36 sigs which would probablly result in an over 2mb gif. (just guessing here). Maybe when Im more experienced at this I can cut down on the processing time. Thanks for the comment it helps me reflect on this concept more. Come to think of it, I may be able to drag out the frame time at the peak image of each player. if you notice, Two frames before and after are fade in and fade out images. The peak frame just needs a longer display time. Thanks I think I'm on to something here.

    Good job, I like the concept behind your gunslinger sig. I understand what you're saying about framerate, but why don't you actually slow down the framerate on the last pic of each QB, instead of making extra frames? That way it delays on the solid picture and then begins the looping process after a longer wait...

    Yes after reflecting on it more I can see how this works. You guys have been great. I'll try this again with a different twist and pass it by you again.
