Post by KnightRider2000 » Fri Feb 27, 2004 4:29 pm

Well here is is guys. I finally got it on the web at a temperary website before it is added to my forum's multimedia page.

Many years ago all it took was one guy and many hours to get the job done. Now the Foundation for Knight Rider Online as hired 3 highly skilled operatives to restore the GIFs they found on the internet. They are KnightRider2000, Neps, and JUP, Team Knight Rider GIF Makers!!!

AussieKnight's GIF???

Post by KnightRider2000 » Fri Feb 27, 2004 4:50 pm

That original GIF i restored was aussieknight's??? I found it on a totally different site, than his usual GIF site! Man I thought I i restored some guy who abandoned his old one! Sorry aussieknight, i didn't know it was yours, i hope your not offended, just wanted to add more deatail and color to it, it took me about a month to complete it using over 40 scenes. Good thing i didn't make it a poll to vote upon, LOL. Well i can't wait to hear what aussieknight thinks as well as the rest of you. Thank you.

Whoa there! Settle dude! I'm so far away now as it is, there's no need to move to Mexico! I must say, the sequence is pretty good. I did cheat when I used an actual picture to animate, so fair's fair. The only dashes I drew from scratch were these:
:dash: :dash4:
Seeing as they're a bit small to animate, I might do something new after I get myself a new PC. Someday!

No problem. Just let me know when you are ready.

EDIT:

I took a quick look through http://www.download.com for gif making software and I found this program that has a lot of positive feedback. http://download.com.com/3000-2186-909432.html?tag=lst-0-7 It's free and it's small. You might want to try it out and see if it does the job you want it to.

Thanks Beatle64,I haven't done too many gifs as of late.You can check out what I have done at http://knightracer.cjb.net .The funny thing about my steering wheel is I used to draw kitts wheel with the handles upside down.Took me a while to get the entire dash down pact.I can draw it by hand much much more realisticly then in pain.

Paint's still a nice little program for being a Windows freebie. I've made my first few images (including a couple moving gifs) with it. (Which are still available for viewing at my original web site.)

Well Knight Racer I used to play with the talking KITT and I would have Michael drive with the steering wheel upside down. How odd.

I'm sure KnightRider2000 will credit you properly Knight Racer, as he asked earlier whos it was but had gotten no response and even thanked aussieknight in this thread when he mistakenly thought the gif was his.

The animation looks good!

I’m not sure what GIF I put on the KRO board to show (the one from your site or another site that stole it), but I tried to contact the owner of the site but there was no e-mail address and the site had not been updated in some time. A few boards have that GIF and It was unclear who’s it was. The one I put on the KRO board I found on a site (don’t know if it’s yours or not) right before I made this topic. I will be more than happy to credit the new restored GIF I did on yours, to everybody that deserved it:

Knight Racer: created original GIF

KnightRider2000: restored original GIF and made news scenes

Neil: sequenced restored GIF

Jup: edited GIF


Not one man made this GIF, but it was the work of a few dedicated people. Now if it’s all right with the rest of you I’d like to convert the KARR PP Presentation to a GIF like I did the KITT one. Are all you guys up to the challenge? Thank you Knight Racer for claiming it as your own, I couldn’t contact you because like I said, the GIF was on various sites with no contact info, and I could not find out with it was. We if you guys are all right with finishing the KARR one I think we could work on it as soon as possible. Thank you.

P.S. The site I found the GIF on was a Maxpages site, not your Geocities one.

Here's a preliminary one I'm doing. More to come yet.

By the way, if anyone knows where the source pic I used comes from, please yell. ;-)

Oh, and without sound it's difficult to tell I know, but KITT's saying "On my way, Michael!"
The rest of the animation will soon follow, soon as I do it. :-)
