    Win8Spinner White (Remastered)


    Hi Cursy,

    The Win8Spinner White with Black border is ready.

    Four (4) ANI cursor files are included in zip attachment, each file has 54 frames x 3 layers = 162 total images!

    Contains 32x32, 48x48 and 64x64 layers with each normal, large, and extra-large (N, L, XL) just like the official Win8 cursors. To be used with the Aero cursors of Win8: replace the busy and working states with the new variants (Control Panel -> Mouse -> Pointers).

    Previews:
    Click image for larger version Click image for larger version Click image for larger version Click image for larger version Click image for larger version Click image for larger version
    Some of the animated GIF's might lack the actual quality due to compression.

    Included in zip:
    -busy spinner -> can be used for all sizes (matches XL size)*
    -working 32x32 N/L/XL
    -working 48x48 N/L/XL
    -working 64x64 N/L/XL

    *smaller sizes lose too much contrast in quality

    That's all.

    Cheers!
    Hopachi

    Nice cursors Hopachi. I do hope you make more extra extra large ones of the built-in Windows Aero theme.

    Hi XPclient,

    Thanks!

    The built-in ones (which ones are that?) the ones provided by Windows... Are already available in extra large.

    To be clear: no, I didn't made coloured versions of those yet.

    I'm thinking to make the Win7 Aero ones in 64x64 because they also don't exist yet.
    Rendered preview:
    Click image for larger version

    In any case, for any cursor you make, the multi-dpi layered versions take (a lot) more time than regular single layer versions.

    Hi Sturgess,

    You mean the red one?

    No. Unfortunately I didn't make any red or orange or any other colors of that. I bet they look great!
    I made a first version of the white one on Cursy's request because I wanted to see how it goes (a long way to go). And because the white one can be automatically re-colored, to create other color versions faster. The thing is I'm not working daily on those projects so it takes a while.

    The red version based on Win7 might get an update to 64x64, after I get the 64x64 layers of the base scheme (see preview previous post).

    Then all it needs to be done is something like in this preview of 64x64:
    Click image for larger version
    Maybe I didn't got the color exactly like the previous one since it's a fast preview... but looks promising.
    However there is still a lot to do until these get finished and I don't have the time to work daily on these. But slow and steady, something gets done in time.


    Best regards,
    Hopachi

    Another preview.

    I've made a few vortexes in the past, this one also looks interesting:

    Click image for larger version

    I'm not sure it's hypnosis but 24frames seems pretty smooth already...
    Noted down for further development.

    I'll keep a eye out,
    Like I said I love my XL RED ONE it makes life easy bouncing around four screens....

    But that in Orange / Yellow like those colors would be awesome

    Sturgess,

    If I apply the mentioned "orange-yellowification" to the standard pointer it will look like this:

    Click image for larger version

    Is that good?

    Making the main color more orange will look bad with red edges (see below), losing contrast, so from a certain point you'll have to switch the red edge to yellow and then the main color will be dark orange or red (what we already have).

    The balance of the color curves:

    Click image for larger version --> Click image for larger version or Click image for larger version

    The one animated above gives a yellowy compromise, keeps the dark-edge specs of the default white one.
    The red one is then basically the edge-color-inverted version but looks very similar with the above orange-yellow preview.

    The reason I dropped orange out is seen here with the so-called 'sunlight version':
    It doesn't give the same clear looks the black-white, yellow-red, red-yellow whatever (you need bright and dark colors to make a clear combination IMO).

    Regards,
    Hopachi
