   I want to put a 256-color image into a resource file using the Image Editor. When I close it, and then open it again the image is uncolored - it appears like it has 16 colors. Maybe you know a better resource editor?

By the way, how to put an avi animation into an resource file?

Hi,
to do the first one the good old Borland's Resource Workshop is my favorite. But if you do not have that you can do it by hand as follows:

Say you have bitmap1.bmp and bitmap2.bmp you want to add your project

prepare a text file called mybitmap.rc and write in:

101 BITMAP "C:\<path to bitmaps>\bitmap1.bmp"
102 BITMAP "C:\<path to bitmaps>\bitmap2.bmp"
etc..
then from dos run the brcc32 (which will be in your bin directory, if there is no path to there write C:\program files\borland\bc3\bin\brcc32 e.g.)
brcc mybitmap.rc
this will create mybitmap.res having 101 and 102 points to your bitmaps. Then add it to your resource statements.

Regarding the 2nd question, I do it as follows:(I do not know how to do as above)
1 - Select the avi file to include
2 - create a custom resource type called AVI (or anything) add the resource from file
3 - Recompile the res
4 - Load the file play it from the resource.
But the above solution may work by just adding
100 AVI1 "c:\myclip.avi"
but I am not sure
Regards,
Igor
