Description:

Hi there. The topic says everything,i was watching to my splash screen, and thinking on making a *.swf file to make this intro. I don't know if it's possible or viable. But it gives more flexibility to the splash screen and more eye-candy :p.
What do you think?

I've said flash, but for me it doesn't matter what tipe of file it is. But i think flash is then only (file type) that gives this kind of aanymations. If i could chouse, i'll chose a opensource file. But nowadays there is no one,. at least that i know

I too would like to see an animated alternative to the box & statusbar convention.

There are apparently a few good projects that will let you make flash content from linux, one of which is "Flash4Linux" which has an IDE that looks like Macromedia's Flash Studio.

http://f4l.sourceforge.net/

This is a good idea. You might want to repost this idea to the KDE4 brainstorm section titled "Flash support for Ksplash". At the most basic level someone can make a ksplash engine that you can plug flash load-screens into.

It might also be cool to go the extra mile and allow Flash KDM login screens.

I wonder if there are any Vector Animation Markup Languages out there. A markup file similar to an XML document would be a neat way for people with no IDE experience to customize their own animations..

I personally hate that flash s**t because it is almost never used for something useful. Using Flash in KSplash would not be the most useful place to be used in after all - but why not? I'm sure the KDevelovers have that on the TODO list for KDE 6.5 :-) :-)

support a lot more media?

I just had a vision of funny little movies being pulled from the net every day by cron and being played when logging in... :-)

I like the basic idea very much, and it could probably make for a whole lot of nice eyecandy

because of the mentioned problems with support for flash, it would however be necessary to find either a way to make flash more supported, or an alternative format which would give the necessary candy, while stile keeping support to a maximum.

maybe it would look great but think more open :) flash is not well supported under linux, and almost unsupported under freebsd.. and what about architectures other than x86?

it isn't a good Idea, mainly because Linux has hardly and support for Flash anyway, so the most it would do Is crash the X server, and then your screwed cause' every time you try to log in it crashes
