I am currently working on a project which I need to make a PNG animation.
I don’t want to use GIF as it doesn’t support semi transpirant background.
I have tried APNG, which is animated PNGs, but I could not get that to work for some reason?
Are APNG supported for browsers?
I have also tried using this jAni, which is a jQuery plugin to make animations from sprites, but I can only get it to work in Google Chrome, and still there is a problem, cause when I zoom in or out in Chrome the animation gonna be wierd.
this doesn’t help much, but you can get away with a lot of PNG animation by manipulating ele.style.backgroundPosition of divs via JS. It could do everything your site is doing for IE FF C. It’s more code, but it works.
My crimegameonline.com does a lot of PNG animation in it’s home page, but I’m having problems on IE only because I’m changing images by the millisecond. Its some download cache problem, fixable I think.
