    Here's one I whipped up ... one of my first real attempts at animated gifs. I'm pretty adept in photoshop but for some reason, I was unable to find out how to do animations in it. It seems like it should be possible but I guess it's not or I couldn't find it. Ended up using gimp which worked pretty well.

    I gotta say, that'n is pretty cool. I like the look on the lettering, fits perfectly.

    Adobe should have a program called Image Ready with it that I think produces animations. But I'm not exactly sure how to make animations, so its probably best just to import them in Animation Shop since it seems easier to use IMHO. I really didn't see how you could make animations in it, like Animation Shop, it didn't seem to have a insert frame option.

    I thought ImageReady came with Photoshop

    That's what I said. I think I meant to say Adobe Photoshop instead of just Adobe.
    I'm saying that it might be better to use Animation shop, it seems a little more Pickup & Play. I don't see how to make anims in PS, i couldn't find an insert frame option.

    EDIT: @Maest:Those Matrix letter thingies might look better if you used the vertical line mask tool and make a gradient with color similar to the matrix letters like on the posters.

    You could make a new gradient, with a lond dark green part then a short light green part, and even shorter white or extremely-close-to-white green part.

    I was thinking about that after seeing an Enter the Matrix poster I have. I've never tried to see how it look, but it might look kinda cool.

    If you make that gradient, upload it so we can all benefit from it

    Hmmm. maybe I should have just suggested that he should make a better transition of colors. The top part of the letters should be a real dark green, almost too dark to read, but still legible; then the follow 2-5 letters should be a neon-like matrix green, then just one or two white letters at the bottom of the text. The gradient doesn't look too good(but it isn't ugly)

    I'll post an example anywayz.(Warning: I have free image hosting. In other words. low bandwidth(5mb). So it may no show up correctly.

    I'll post the gradient in the zip. Y'all can fiddle around with it to make it better if you like.

    Yeah, Maest, I think you should just make the transition in the colors look better like I suggested above instead of the gradient. But if it looks good using the gradient then thats great. Maybe you can mess around with your sig and even make the letters in the bg animated(they start at the top and drop down), and when they finish, your name will show up.

    Some guy in a different forum made a sig that was decent looking(most of us could probably make it in no time though)
    and I decided to add some various stuff to it to make it better.

    http://forums.beyondunreal.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=68496

    The quality isn't as high as it should, but it actually made the text more smokey like.

    Anyone want to take a stab at making me an Underworld sig? Saw the movie last night and I have to say I'm quite impressed.

    Thanks Feen. :tup: I've got to get back into the groove as well. I haven't created a sig in ages.

    Ah... so you're going as "old-school-controlled-by-the-machines Smith?" :p

    Feen, I shall respond to your sig earlier tommorow. I'm writing this post from school, I experienced the PC screwup from hell at home (running in 256 colors with no mouse), but I figured out what's wrong, something with system.ini, and I've got that backed up on a CD somewhere. To compensate for lost time, I'll do my best to make it pwn. :)
