    @Hopachi

    I use RealWorld cursor editor. I never used GIMP to make cursors. I will try, but I bet its very difficult to make complicated cursor sets like you have done. I embrace all the hard work you make for those custom cursors.

    Thanks for the quick tutorial tip above.

    ========================================================================================

    Will you open another cursor thread here on this forum and continue to make cursor sets based on people's requests?

    That's how I do it, all in one.
    Most of work here is in GIMP.
    I believe @i486 does the entire animation differently, without GIMP, maybe Photoshop, or with more work in RW Cursor Editor...

    I have seen and download all the remixed Binary cursors that i486 did. He works very well as well.

    It's all a matter of understanding how the layers work, then you need to understand how GIMP can automate rotations, translations, etc, to help you achieve the effect needed. There are a lot of filters.

    In RW Editor, IMO, all is done frame by frame if the animation gets too complex. No go for me.

    I won't open another thread, if I get the time and idea right, I'll post here.

    Feel free to decide on your own where to place your idea.
    But depending on work, since the animations do get a lot of time, I won't go in on requests all the time.
    You should try to experiment, start small if you have an idea for a cursor, don't expect to get it right from the start. It takes patience to learn.

    I will place my idea here on this thread at a later date. I know you worked very hard, but I am planning to request two fully animated cursor sets. Will it be OK if I request them in a week's time?

    I know that animations takes a lot of time. Do not worry. I wont request animated cursor sets all the time.

    Its up to you to decide. In the meantime, I will experiment with GIMP and see how it goes.

    Thank you so much for your time and patience.

    You're welcome.

    As a general rule for me on this thread:
    No more requests.

    But you can post them if you like, on this thread as well.

    I have some other projects to do.
    Feel free to experiment further, we'll see how all goes.

    Good luck.

    OK. I may post requests, but that would be for a later date, as I mentioned before.

    Your other projects sound very interesting. What projects are you planning to work on?

    Do not worry. I will experiment myself with GIMP. By the way, is GIMP free?

    OK take your time.

    Some work, on PC with some html-graphics stuff different than cursors. But there are some cursors ideas as well.
    I'm planning a new neutral cursor scheme, haven't decided on the details yet. And maybe something more metallic-looking.

    GIMP is free.
    Check the site.

    For a GIMP beginner tutorial check this one:

    I always take my time preciously, so I will think thoroughly until I come up with a suitable plan.

    I do like your plan with the neutral cursor scheme with that metallic look. Interesting!

    I have checked the GIMP website. I am glad that its free and without limitation. That's because its Open Source software. Thanks for the video tutorial.

    Please add one more cursor to the Riddler Premium XXL:


    Sorry to interrupt you, but could it be possible for you to add a "Working In Background" version of the Raining Question Marks cursor?

    Other than that, this cursor set is perfect. There are no need for any more tweaks. The set is 100% perfect.

    Yes, just RW Cursor Editor. I don't see how using a photo editing program would make it much faster unless complex gradients and visual effects are included, there is some kind of layer support in RWCE but I haven't looked into it properly. I've finally figured out how to disable interpolation when moving selections (exact co-ordinates setting), but I still don't know if it's possible to disable it for resizing.

    There was one suggestion for the Riddler Premium XXL set but you completed it before I had the chance. The beam and precision select cursors could've been question marks themselves, beam with two of them, vertically flipped to mirror each other, and the cross with four of them, both vertically and horizontally flipped.
