Animated Splashscreen

I have a custom splashscreen image for my application. I would like to have it animated much like the default Vizard splashscreen. That way people know that their computer hasn't locked up while the program is loading.

I guess I should ask first, is this even possible? I tried an animated gif for the image, but that just shows a single frame of the gif.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Aaron

It turns out that no, you currently can't have an animated splashscreen, but I have put in a feature request to WorldViz. We'll see if it happens or not. If more people request it, it could increase the chances that it will happen.

As far as I know an animated splash screen does not exist in Vizard. I used the AdvancedSplash, based on wxpython. You can send me a PM for setup code.

As a side note, if you want to avoid long loading screens, there is nothing wrong with calling viz.go() after initializing and loading the world and textures ect.

You can use the built-in HTML feature of Vizard to create custom HTML based splash screens. Here is a simple example:
Code:
import viz
import vizact
viz.go()

# Display HTML over entire window
viz.window.displayHTML('http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1Y73sPHKxw&autoplay=1',pos=(0,0),size=viz.window.getSize())

# Hide HTML at beginning of first frame
vizact.ontimer2(0,0,viz.window.hideHTML)

"""
Load script
.
.
.
"""
viz.waittime(8.0) # Simulate long load time
Just replace the URL with your own local HTML page. This should allow animated GIFs and even flash videos
