THis is my 1st attempt. I am not in any way happy with it, but it is not 100% bad for a first try. I wasn't able to get the text properly aligned, so it is jumpy. The "lights" don't chase one another.. I am thinking this is due to only using 2 frames... I should have probably used one more.

First of all, I think it is AWESOME for a first attempt. You are using psp right? I don't have it, so I am not sure how to tell you how to do this, but maybe give you an idea. What I do in photoshop to make sure my text is aligned is I duplicate my text layer, so that I just retype over what was in the first frame and then it is in the same position. Make sense? Then it won't jump.

As far as your dots, I still use two different sets of dots, like you are using, but like this:

(text 1, dots 1) (text 1, dots 2) until you get to 8 frames
(text 2, dots 1) (text 2, dots 2) until you get to 8 frames
then set your timing for each frame to like .1 or .15 seconds.

I hope that helps...wish I new more about psp.

Thank you, yes I do use PSP... It is hard for some to give help when so many use or are more proficient on another program. But every little bit of info helps.

I think my mistake with the text.. was because I merged the first frame, before I made the next vector. When I shouldn't have, KWIM?

Exactly! I think that will help next time if you do all of your text first before you start merging!
