It would be a nice gesture if you added this animated gif to your apps (better with also a link to B4X.com)

As you can see, the gif above are not "perfect", there are "noises", due to the tool I used to create them "capturing" the screen part (b4j form), LICEcap.
For this new version I used this new library (author: @Blueforcer):
Animated GIF encoder

and this is the result, without dirt, as you can see:


(the texts animation is different, I know, and maybe the first kind is nicer; for the moment I have had to do it this way.
I have to check but this version is "heavier", 1,503,506 bytes). EDIT: Yes, this is four times heavier. I could use an optimization tool, I don't know how much you could save.

The real purpose of this new version was to test that very useful new library :). In addition, I had to change the method, in order to use the Views Snapshot method (now a panel contains all the ImageViews involved in the animation; before they, the text ones, scrolled on the Form)


EDIT: Evidently I had already solved the "dirt" problem and I didn't remember it (or now my eyes are tired and I don't see it 😎)

NOTE: as you know, I am not a "staff member", not an "Anywhere Software" employee.

EDIT: at @Beja's request, attached a builder project, BuildAnywsfGif.zip, which I hope is what I actually used for the first animation 😊. Remeber that it only shows the animation; to create the animated gif I used LICEcap.

EDIT: Attached the builder project (BuildAnywsfGifEnc.zip), which uses this animated gif encoder library to create the animated gif.

Nice work Luca. How did you created this animation?

P.S. I watched a science video and I remembered you. It was about Last Universal Common Ancestor - LUCA...😄😄😄

Actually, I'm a real... beginner 😄 , in terms of graphics (also because I'm very very young 🤥😄).

I simply used B4J (ImageViews), after cutting and adapting various images using Paint Net.
To get the animated gif I used LICECap.

I don't know if that gif violates the Copyright or Trademark rules; eventually, you could use this one:

I would like to add another logo, a new, current technology: IOT, but it does not seem to me that there is an official, or better common, logo for this.

Would you share the code snippet? ;)

Sure, I will do it, given this your request (not a great project, nothing special; the "hardest" job probably was "creating" the images - using Paint Net).

To create the first two gifs I used a method, for the third I used a different one, as in this second project I wanted to try a recent library that generates the animated gif (while for the first, in addition to the B4J project, I used an external tool for generating the gif, LICEcap).

Using that library has many advantages; unfortunately it produces a much larger file, about 4 times as much.

I'll add the projects to the first post, soon (the problem will be to attach the image files).
