How to Make Animated Cursors! XD

About: My comps been dead, so I havent been on in awhile.

Intro: How to Make Animated Cursors! XD

DONT buy them when you can make them!!!!

Step 1: Download Editor

I use realworld cursormaker because its the only free one I could find without viruses

Step 2: Setup and Open

setup and open the application

Step 3: Make Animation

put frames in, just like a regular animation, move or change the image bit by bit to create desired effect. you can put the "hotspot" in a different place that the default 0,0. the hotspot is where on the mouse will "click" when you push the button.

*sorry i can't show what tool to use to change hotspot right now, my computer is acting up.*

Step 4: Save

Save it as a .ANI file not .CUR. if you save as .CUR, then it will use only the first frame of the animation, not all of them.

Step 5: An Example

you can download this and save it wherever.

Step 6: To Use

click control panel, then click switch to classic view if it is int already in it, then click mouse, then pointers, then click "normal select", then "browse" you can then access wherever you saved your pointer to, highlight it and press "open".

    A) This is not detailed at all .
    B) You said it needs saving as a .avi file not a .ani file.
    C) It would be better if we knew how to use said cursors once made.

    Believe it or not, IF you could read, you would see that he does explain how to use the cursors.

    Look at the date I posted that comment. At that point, he hadn't explained it at all, and he has since edited it. Think before you flame.

    oh. Now I feel like a butthead. Which normally I'm a really nice guy, I just can't stand people who think they are superior to everyone and aren't nice about suggestions. Sorry for the bad impression.
