I would like to start a contest about bootanimations for the FP.
##What is a boot animation ?
It is the image sequence which displays while your phone boots up.
IE, this is the one for the FP2 :
(actually 2 parts, an initial anim, then a looping “loading” text)
It looks very classy and professional, but I would like to know if there are some artists among you who would like to make a more creative-looking one, a community boot animation.
Let’s start a contest, and we could even suggest FP to use the best one for the open-source OS !
For ideas, you can have a look at this gallery
Technically, it’s a zip file gathering a sequence of png images. You can extract the current one from your phone, the file is /system/media/bootanimation.zip
I can support you with tech advice on how to create the file from your images.
Here’s the technical specs of the current images. There are 57 of them.
