I'm trying to make a logo smoothly appear from a black background...I'm getting jerky results and a huge GIF file.  Is there a way of doing this better in java?

use flash in case u want to have it
the reason being there are two forms of the image
1. vector form
and 2. pixel form
use flash

I have made a sample for you in flash and the size of the file is 1.45K.

I am uploading it at www.synapseindia.com/glopos.zip

Download it and have a look, you will be amazed.
You would need flash4 plugin to view it, get back to me as soon as you can

Wow! How very kind of you to create that sample for me!! It looks great!!

I have got Macromedia Flash 4 but I'm having problems making it fade.  How did you do that?

Could you send me your file in a form that I can play with please?

Also how did you get my logo into Flash? It's not quite the same as the real logo, is that a font you have?  What's it called?

Thanks a lot for your help

Great - thanks.  I now have a working movie which fades nicely.  It's still not exactly how I want it (more about that later) but how do I inset it into my webpage?

I'm using FP 2000...is there an easy way to import it using that?

Thanks

I have uploaded the .fla file in a zip format at www.synapseindia.com/glopos1.zip
you can download it and have a look.

About adding it into your webpage, you can get the code to embed a flash movie from flash software itself.

In flash, goto - File - publish settings - and here select the html tag. Then press publish. This will create the html file along with the code.

Now just copy and paste the code in you html file and you are through.

OK - thanks.

I've worked most of it out already and have an example at www.motorscan.co.uk/glopos

The logo is slightly distorted at the bottom however....I am using Photoshop to make GIF files and then importing them in Flash.  Is this the best way to do this?

Thanks

No you don't use photoshop images in flash.

Flash is a editing tool itself. You create the logo in flash and fade it from zero alpha to 100% alpha thats it.

Using photoshop images in flash will increase the file size.

if you have got the solution then can you grade my answer?
