    Question Another one of those Theme Building what now questions

    Advertisement



    O.K. I think I'm thinking too hard, but I can seem to build themes in the 4.6 theme builder program and get them to work with the device simulator, but now what? I can't seem to figure out the composer. I actually can't grasp it's actual purpose.
    Can anyone tell me in, layman's terms, what to do now? Please don't laugh at me if this is a stupid question. I'm a theme newbie.

    man...
    it took me so long to figure out composer and it's purpose and how to use it with theme builder...

    I am not really the person to be saying what composer can and can not do as I am still learning what the program can and can't do but...
    you can make animated lock screens, homescreens, and menu's

    if you look at these animateed themes that are coming out right now, all of the animated (moving) images that they have were made in composer.

    I know that's not really very detailed but someone with better knowledge about the program will be posting here soon I'm sure of it.

    if you do have any questions about composer I'll answer to the best of my ability.

    feel free to hit me up

    Smile Yay!!!!!!!

    I might just have to leave work early! Thank you so much for the help, and letting me know that I'm not alone with that composer confusion. I'll get it posted tonight, as I owe pinstackers something in return for all the help they've given me. Mainly Modern, lavagirl, berryadict, rogro, cheri, and yourself.
    So I'll try not to disappoint.

    Composer is a B! lol. one shortcut ive learned with animations is edit them in something like ImageReady and then impot them to Composer. ive tried making the animations in Composer alone and my brain exploded! lmao.

    my take on that comment is every 1 is on each other's level because every 1 is unique to their style of themes.. cherri and dr.d are on their own planet with this theme stuff.. but all are equal in 1 way... their dedication to theme making and that we all stand behind our work and thats all that matters..
    so once again welcome to the world of themin and if u ever need help holla at us we will always be willin to help you out if u need it..

    I'm just glad to know it's not just me...
    One other question...
    Is it possible to create my own icon images to replace the default images using autosketch, corel draw or cad, and then import them to the composer? Or would those files be to big?
    Good greif I can't wait to get off work and go home. Gotta lotta stuff to try!
