Rotating Globes V1.1 by g3xter Rotating Globes V1.1 by g3xter
Continuation of the rotating sphere, a rotating animated globe.


UPDATE 02/06/10 1.1

Thanks to JS Morley's GIF script [link] all sizes underwent a MASSIVE improvement in quality and CPU usage. No blurry upscaling and bloated CPU usage anymore!


SEE THE ANIMATED VERSION HERE [LINK]

Rendered by the fellow Deviant Skylink [link]

Available in the sizes SMALL, MEDIUM and HUGE.

I used a transformation matrix this time to scale the image up, since this seems to be more CPU efficient.

The rotation axis drifts about ~3 pixels during a whole rotation, which leads to a short lag after each turn. I tried over 2 hours to fix this, I almost threw my keyboard out of the window, but I couldn't find it.

Tell me if you like it, this will be implanted into the world time zone gadget in the next version of BlueVision.

Very nice thank you but...........there is a blank image loading at the end of your animations so the globe seems to disapear for 1 seconde. Strange.

UPDATE :

Rename files from 0.png to 59.png
For smoother rotation,  change variable Update=70 to 40
You can change de size of the globe by adding :
W=(width you prefer)
H=(Height you prefer)
in the ImageMeter tag.

leave count to 60

voila.

Is it possible to change the color and speed? I'd love to know how to be able to do that.

can you create a rotating sphere then images from a specific folder are revolving around it, then if you click an image it will zoom in? that would be awesome

no idea if the lag is solved yet but i found a solution:
change picture number 60 to 59 and picture number 58 to 0

I have tried to download this several times but every time I have tried to install it and I get this message:
"The skin packager tool must be used to create valid .rmskin packages" I have tried placing the file in my documents/rainmeter/skins and then installing it but the same message appears. I have tried zipping the file and unzipping the file into rainmeter and also have tried creating a .rmskin file and including that into the file and I don't get the message anymore but instead i can't find it when i try to load it. I have the newest version of rainmeter = 2.5 and just recently downloaded 3.0 beta too. I am fairly new to Rainmeter and I am not a programmer by any means but I am confused at what I am doing wrong??? Please Help..Thanks

I could fix this by renaming 60.png image to 0.png the problem is that the counter starts at 0, not 1, and gifframe.exe creates default names, since 1.png 60. png I hope my small contribution helps, and thank you very much for that great creation. Smoke Tracer

Put the "Update" settings on whatever you want (I personally recommend 90)

And then "Formula" to:

Formula=Counter % 60+1

There you go :)
