This is a new video demo I made, which (finally) demonstrates System Animator as a multi-purpose PC activity monitor, as well as a music visualizer, with interesting and fully CUSTOMIZABLE animation!

Yeah, I have quite an archive of animations for System Animator (I just checked and was surprised to see it was already over 16MB, 1800 files, 120 sub animations... LOL), in which most of them were made by myself. Since the beginning of this System Animator project, I have been making various animations, for both testing/program development purpose and personal interest. Most of the time, an animation used in System Animator is as SIMPLE as a sequence of animated GIFs, or exported frames from an animated GIF. And the most common "source" of these animated GIFs is ... guess what, forum avatar images LOL   ;001 (I suppose your "rolling" signature can look pretty funny when it responds to music... LOL  ;025 ) We all know there are TONS of cool animated avatar images out there, and you will probably be surprised by how interesting they can be when they are used in System Animator.

Anyways, I have just updated the "Extra Animation Collection" download in my Sidebar gallery page to contain most of the animations I have. You guys can download it now.

PS: I wonder if anyone knows any FREE program that can batch export frames (to any static format) from an animated GIF. My usual method is to manually export a frame, one by one. While it usually isn't a problem (most of the animated GIFs I work with have less than 20 frames), I do have some nice dancing animated GIFs that I want to export... but most of them have over 100 or even 200 frames, which is too much work to export them manually  ;013

Unfortunately the only tip I've got for you is to use an image processor with easy layer management, like the GIMP or something like that. I'm not the animations kind of guy ^^

And I didn't know that song was on the Re-Mix001 disc, but I have it. Thanks!

(or at least, it's available from a Torrent Provider Near You... -w- )

It seems I somewhat overlooked VirtualDub.... It can actually read animated GIF and batch export frames LOL  ;025

By the way, I (finally) found the high-quality version of the Haruhi ED full dance, and managed to turn it into a System Animation animation. Even as a somewhat "random" animation... the Haruhi dance surprisingly matches a lot of musics I tried. Below is a recent video demo built with the Haruhi dance sequence.

Don't miss the new video introduction at the end of it as well.

Well here is a collection of recent video demos posted in other threads.







And I am delighted to announce that ALL animations demonstrated in the existing demo videos are now available for download (including Hatsune Miku and XP-tan desktop mascot). Check out my Sidebar gadget gallery page for details.

It was down for a while I guess, but it is working properly right now.


By the way, here is a preview of a work-in-progress Vocaloid Luka gadget. This time it has all the common system stats display (CPU, RAM, network speed) built-in, so it's more than just a System "Animator"  :smoke:

This is how she looks on the desktop.



And, as usual, a video to demonstrate what she is doing :D

NEW desktop mascot



And a video demo as usual



Some "tricks" are done in this demo to make those Vocaloid desktop mascots look like they are singing out the vocals in real time (normally, they react to music regardless of whether there is a vocal or not), but the whole demo is still a real-time generated one instead of anything pre-scripted  :smoke:

And again, a video demo



Even if you don't like using gadgets on your desktop, I still suggest you at least check out the music used in this video... my recent favorite  :smoke:

Dunno what I can still say here... since there have been no response for a long time XD

Anyways, just in case anyone still cares, here are some new demos.





2 very different songs, same animation set (the Miku dance).
