Scrolling Animation Logo Script for GIMP

Post#1 by tim » 07 Feb 2017, 23:49


Create scrolling animation with this script.
Instructions:
1. Have 2 layers, a background layer (could be transparent) and a layer above it as foreground (this foreground layer will be moved/animated) and an optional cover layer on the very top to cover some of the viewable area so that it'll reveal foreground layer as we animate.
2. Run script (Python-Fu/Scrolling Logo...), enter Scroll X and Scroll Y, OK to run.
3. Delete the 2 layers at bottom (your original layers).
4. And you have the layers ready for animation.
You might want to use this script --> http://gimplearn.net/viewtopic.php?t=72 to help you rename your layers so that it replaces previous frames content.

Here's version 2: (It allows you have a 3rd layer, topmost to be cover over scrolling foreground).
Instructions.
1) Have 3 layers (1 bottommost background layer, 1 layer to be scrolled on top of background, 1 cover layer on topmost).
2) Run this version of script.
3) Enter Scroll X and/or Scroll Y.
4) Delete bottommost 3 layers (your original layers).
5) You are left with layers for animation.

This is version 3. This version will allow you to have the second layer (scrolling layer to be larger than image width (and height).
Instructions:
Like other versions, except before running script make sure you line up image left edge with layer's left edge if you're scrolling left, and vice versa.

Tin, I love your script but having trouble. How do you tell it to scroll to the left. Mine keeps going to the right. How do I adjust that? Also, I don't understand the top cover layer. I find it has to be transparent or covers the scroll and background. How does this work? :hammer_head:

edit: I see about the top layer now. Your GL logo example was not working when I first started reading the thread. It is like a frame, and the scrolling layer is inbetween. :hammer_head: :yay_yay_purple:

I still can't get to scroll to the left which is important if trying to read text.

Pat625, To make it scroll to the left, enter a negative Scroll X number.

Thanks Tin. I found that out after I posted. I put a minus before my 200 for X. Here is my result.
Now I know what I am doing I can see that I'll use this script a lot! It is quick and easy. Has a lot of potential. It will be a quick way to dress up some previous compositions!

Thanks again, Tin. You whip these scripts that make life easier! BTW, I really like the images showing larger now. I think that is a great improvement. :gimp_clap: :yay_yay_purple: :learned_something:
