You might ask yourself why I made my name even less legible than usual... just wait until the gif's fully loaded and you'll find out.

I was inspired by this: http://www.pacificnet.net/~tgrupe/graphics/spt-anim.gif (the personal page of the guy is here.)

Another interesting site is http://www.ambigram.com . The design isn't that great, though.

It's nowhere near finished, I'd just like to know if anybody's got any suggestions on what to do with the shapes before I start on the fancy stuff. If you'd like to try something on your own i'd suggest drawing it with pen first. Switch between CAPITAL letters and normal letters if you can't figure it out... it's a fun thing to try.

Hey, I like it, I'll have to try that sometime

and, umm, how exactly do you pronounce your name, I've always pronounced it mah-qua (with all long vowels), but then I remember somebody saying that [you said] it was mahj (short a) and then qa (q pronounced like c, accented a)

sweet , very nice, your a lucky one to be able to do that with your name. I tried a wee go with mine, but couldnt , the two Hs are perfect though .. poo, or .. wait a min, when the ug are lower case it wouldnt be bad, didnt try that.. ~~ runs off the try (dont have any animator though).. ~~
.. fuck it I'll do it at home another time.
..
~~ I really didnt leave my seat ~~

oh yea, seems to me it should rotate the other way for some reason ?? prolly coz the fins on the h and the y seem like they should be dragged .. i dont know whats wrong with me..

Whoa... no offense was meant, mahjqa, really. I was just noting that it is pronounced quite differently from the way I would have imagined. You've got every right to pronounce your name however you want.

synax: see above.

It was the lack of a slimie, wasn't it... I forgot to put a slimie in my original post...

Uh, mas, you okay? You sound like you're hyperventilating, man

anyway.. another way of creating those mirror images is

1) make a white background
2) add your name (or anyone's) with black on a new layer
3) merge the two layers
4) duplicate that layer, and rotate the top one 180 degrees
5) set the top layer to 'screen' and move it until you've got something that looks right. if it doesn't work, try another font or turn capslock on.
6) fiddle a bit with it until it looks right.

you had to go and put that between 2 other sentences... sheesh. being the visual type, i just read the first and last sentences of every paragraph and then skipped to the pictures.

so.... nyah nyah!

I do stand corrected though, but my "nyah's" stay.

nice bevel :\
To rotate click ctrl+J ctrl+T rotate 45 degrees. Repeat until full spin is completed.

Duck, when you make it transparent, make sure your backgorund colour is RGB 43,04,04...tha'ts the matte colour for here, and it stop white-jaggies-from hell.

Duck.
To make it smoother just use more frames.
Divide the amount of frames with 360. now you have 360/8 = 45.
Try 10 frames (360/10 = 36 degrees = smoother motion)

I guess I really only need 180 degrees though. Right?

Is there any way that I can speed it up?
