STEP-BY-STEP: How to put Anim-FX files on your website

You don't need to use complex software packages or spend a lot of money and time to create animated text with combined text and background effects. You can do it easily with Anim-FX --an extremely easy to use shareware package -- even for people with no computer/Flash skills.

The program is sold for US$27. But before you buy it, you can play with the demo package and see how easy it is to create animations. Just start by following the program, step by step.

How to create the effect in Anim-FX

1) Select any of the 55 template effects.

2) Enter your text of up to 5 lines. If you fill in less than 5 lines the program will only render the entered lines and ignore the empty ones.

3) Set the size and starting position of your text. Should you decide to make the animation smaller than the default settings by setting a percentage of the width or height tag in HTML, cropping will automatically occur from the outer edges.

Select the background color and text color. You can use any hexadecimal value. For example, FFFFFF is white, OOOOOO is black, 333333 is dark grey, FF0000 is red, 00FF00 is green, 0000FF is blue, etc.

4) To preview the effect in your browser, click on the Preview button.

How to save the effect

5) All the saved templates are stored in the Anim-FX directory. Normally this directory will be at C://Program Files/Anim-FX. Every effect consists of 2 files, an .SWF file and a .TXT file (e.g. "explosion.swf" and "explosion.txt"). They are both needed for the effect to work properly, because the text file contains all the data for the SWF file.

6) To save your Anim-FX effect, click the Save text file button. the files will be automatically saved to the directory that you installed the software. After that, you should copy the files to the directory which holds the HTML page where you want the effect to appear. It is recommended that you copy the files to another directory immediately, especially when you want to use the same effect template again, because in the Anim-FX directory only one effect with the same name can exist.
