How can I use a custom avatar? I don't really like any of the lucasforum ones, and I see lots of people that have their own, so I was just wondering how I do it?

go to user cp, edit options, change avatar, then you can upload one or pick one they have.

btw, welcome to the swap :wavey:

Thanks for the help, and for the nice welcome. I've been a longtime viewer of the forum, just never had a reason to post anything until I seriously got into mapping. Hope to see you around. And Padanime, great avatars! :)

is that the little move obi did when he turned on his lightsaber?

if so you should have have it pause at the end for a bit. (if you see what i mean)

at the moment he it looks like he is using a new lightsaber technique and spinning it round like a maniac.

very nice tho

what about this one?


i used movie gear too Padanime, i'm hoping it's like winzip and when your time is up you can still use it.

Darth-Nasty, it is the scene just before he gets dragged by jango, i wanted to pause it but he never actually holds the saber with two hands so it looked silly.

i didn't convert, i played the trailer frame by frame, press the old print screen key and pasted into paintshop then loaded then into movie gear, cropped it resized and there you go.

it's quicker than you think, there is only 8 frames, so i only had to print screen 8 times and the resizing took 5 minutes.

Yes, people, but I'm so talented, I'm making my own. Anyone can make a movie into an avatar, but you gotta be talented to make what I have. :D
