I had Astrotoy7 make it for me, he made Evil Dark Jedi's as well, sort of as a early christmas present to celabrate the release of the original trilogy revamped, he is making ones from the ot for free, all I did was pm him about what I wanted, and Yoda's Swamp (http://lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?daysprune=30&forumid=162) is not lost, neither is the STUCK avatar thread (http://lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&postid=1660022#post1660022)....

TheRealJedidude, everyone doesn't browse all the forums. Next time giving a link would help.

MTV2 your more likely to get real help in the forum TheRealJedidude told you about.

BTW- Do you really like MTV2? I don't like it that much. Just wondering. :confused:

Adam G's avatar was made by taking screencaps from the star wars dvd. all you do is use the 'printscrn' key and then paste the frames into a gif making program. i use animation shop, which comes with paintshop pro.

here are some i made...

these were made using the same method as above, only i made them from trailers.

another good program is gif movie gear, which you can download from www.moviegear.com

gif making programs are very similar to one another, and they are quite easy to use.

so you take a screenshot of it when its playing?
but you have to take like 30 shots, and you can only take one shot at a time then paste it somewhere then you have to find out where they go:confused:

Edit: I like MTV, cause it has more then just music(like Pimp my RIde, etc.), so ya, I like it a bit

yeah, you pause it, take a screenshot, paste it, then you forward it by a frame. then take another screenshot, paste it. and you keep doing that until you have all the frames you need.
then you just cut them down to size and save it as a gif.

how do you forward a frame(in windows media player)?

and can you do this with windows video maker?

in windows media player you can't, you'll just have to be quick with the play/pause button.

quicktime is good as it has a frame advance button and a frame back button.
