My question is, I'm trying to make 2D raster (ie not Flash) animations to use in a games or screensavers but have not found an efficient file to store it in. AVI's and MOV's are clunky (and not always supported), GIF's can't have more than 256 colors, and MNG isn't widely supported. What is a good, quick, efficient file good for 2D animations (sprites)?
Not only that does anyone know a good platform to create these programs? Or would you have to code from scratch?
Does anyone know what they used to make these old screensavers? Any advice or know how?
Thanks for your time,
