    The animated color versions are ready for these three, just like the orange one was once made.

    Previews:

    These versions have the neon glow to match the already released pointers (see older posts).

    The animated cursors are found in the attached zip(s) below.

    Cheers!

    Thanks!
    Basically you need to start simple using the Real World Cursor Editor program.

    Read the user manual for all advanced topics.

    You'll need to understand what an animation is and how to achieve animation through multiple individual frames or one whole sequence. Static cursors don't have animations so they are a good starting point in making cursors, for animations it's like combining multiple static images in a sequence and together you'll get an animation.

    First off: create your design in Paint, Photoshop,..., any image program you like... or draw the cursors directly in the cursor editor, you decide.

    Here's some basic info on how to get to work in creating the animated cursor.
    In addition of the design images, you create a new animated cursor, select the template "32, 48 - Win7" or alter it to remove or add other layer sizes. 32x32 and 48x48 are the layer sizes (mentioned with 32, 48). below I go up to 96x96:

    Click image for larger version

    You'll notice in the bottom of the screenshot that you'll need to create multiple frames: you'll start with one which can be selected and copy-pasted until you get the desired number.
    Select each frame and drag'n'drop the resized (png) image of your cursor design, this for each resolution layer; beginning from 96x96 to 32x32 or the other way around is not important, just fill all frames. Save your file (ani) regularly. You'll need to select each required layer in the right side of the screen before you insert the image.

    Notice in the center of the image: a round green dot: that's the hotspot, aka the cursor's center point.
    ATTENTION: The hotspot is what clicks buttons, scrollbars, etc. If you forget to set the hotspot it will be set on the top-left corner, making the cursor misplaced when used: you'll click buttons with a pointer that's not on top of the button. Set the hotspot correctly. For spinners, like in the screenshot: is usually centred, for pointers: it will be the top of the arrow.

    The Delta45 cursor has 12 frames so eventually you'll get something similar done.
    Windows Aero cursor has 18 frames so it will require a bit more work.
    Aero8spinner like the one I posted here Click image for larger versionhas 54 frames as a bare minimum in order to create the animation, so there's some serious layer work to do.
    Start with an easier one, small and simple... 3 frames?, 10 frames?... If it runs/spins, you're on the right track.

    You can also load a sequence, where each frame is side by side in one image, and create the cursor in one blow:
    an example: Click image for larger version

    If you don't feel very creative at the moment or would like to see some nice animated examples:
    See Preloaders.net - AJAX loading GIF and APNG spinners, bars and 3D animations generator for some interesting loaders, create your sequence/frames and make your cursors from it.

    Images...
    Frames, frames, frames...

    That's all there is to it.

    Cheers!

    Sure,

    Aero Red Dark, in this case.

    I've added the install + all the cursor file as well.

    See attached zip in this post.

    They are to be used with the default cursor schemes (containing the rest of pointers).
    The new colored ones are found in the attached zip, for anyone who is interested.

    I'll try to do one of those when I get some time.

    Made a quick sketch:
    Is this what you mean by black & red?
    Click image for larger version

    Here it is:

    Click image for larger version

    This has the same specs as the white one. No big changes.

    The working state is what you need in black (see attachment).
    The busy state is the same, already posted red wheel from the white one.

    Cheers,
