The head banging Llama!!!

This is a silly / stupid / moronic question, I know...

I've been scratchin around in the png's that make up the modern skin, and came across the one that is supposed to give you a head banging Llama if you switch on the Beat Viz in the options... But how the hell do you get it to do that? Or do you just have to go and change the names of the two Beat Viz files around?

get the png's from the modern skin, cut them into gifs off all the same size and location.

then on the internet there is a free program called unfreeze, or gif unfreeze or somthing.

you will need to save all the images as gifs. then jsut drag and drop them into the program, set the speed of it and press MAKE ANIMATED GIF.

Viola, you have yourself a gif.

either that or make it up from screenshots.

however i think it would be easier to make from the files in the skin.
i belive you jsut change the skin file extension to .zip and open as you normally would.

well, i cant find them.
i dont know what you mean by change it to zip, it isnt a .wal file, it is a folder called winamp modern and it has a whole bunch of parts of the player, but not the visualization

I gotta admit - that is a freakin' AWESOME little trick. A headbangin' llama!!! Kickass! Now... if only there would be a plugin that would allow you to open it in a separate "window," 'cause I hate having to resize Winamp... it makes it... how should I say it... well, weird... plus, who thinks the headbangin' llamas should be shown all the times?

ok, found them, but the thing is, they are on a transparent background, so it doesnt have the blue background
i guess i'll try it out, maybe in an hour i will try to get them with the blue background.
the thing is, it is going to look exactly like dipso's so he wout know if i took his or not.
thanks for all your help

I used photoshop and imageready to do it... just search for animation in the helpfiles, if you do that you can have a different backround aswell... (that way it won't be a total ripoff )

EDIT: also, using the png's, like i did yields much better results then taking screenshots, i tried with the screenshots but realized pretty soon that using the pngs would allow me to make a much smother animation.

I have modified mine slightly now, so it looks nicer in thiese forums, so no danger of anyone accusing you of stealing if you use the original WA backround

damn, i like your new one
you probably dont care, but i'll be using it at broadbandreports.com
the one i uploaded is the one i'll be using, and i may find a different background, thanks
(the forum has very strict avatar regulations too, under 5k, 40X50 or 40X40 so i had to reduce the file size to half of what it was)

press print screen to take a snapshot, then go into paint (or any other graphics program) and paste it in there.
a png is a image file format, like .gif and .jpg and .bmp
.gif's can have animation and transparency, .png's can't have animation but can have transparency, .jpg's cant have animation or transparency. .bmp's cant have animation or transparency but are of good quality and have a big file size.

You could add a blur (doesn't look too good imo) or ask bartibartman for higher resolution bmps
