If you’ve already taken a look at the boot animation utility featuring 400 different animations for your Android device, but haven’t seen anything that catches your eye, you may want to create your very own boot animation. If this is the case, you may want to check out XDA Senior Member ayushrox‘s guide on how to do so.
A guide written for Windows Users, it lays down the foundations by explaining just exactly what a boot animation is, what it consists of, and what each component’s purpose is. A process that is actually quite simple, ayushrox breaks it down into 10 ‘bite-size’ chunks, or steps, for the newcomer who may not know all the pedantic details that is required. Accompanying screenshots and examples of code are also conveniently provided for the steps that may require some visual aid. Ayushrox highly recommends the use of image editing software such as Adobe Photoshop, and having either 7Zip or Winrar installed when creating boot animations, as they are necessary for the required steps.
Again, it is quite a simple process that, with a bit of practice, will become second nature just like any of the other tasks involved in theming your Android device. So if you would like to create the perfect boot animation for yourself, or have a custom animation for your ROM or kernel, be sure to check out the guide at its original post._________
