Re: Dynamic Theme Creator Software

:Lol: yeah ive tried animated gifs but if i remember correctly, it didnt work :smileysad: I dont think they would release whatever they use for the dynamic themes as i think it might be a bit difficult for the average person to make them, it would have to involve a knowledge of PS3 scripting, etc. Having said that, it would be great if they did and i would definately give it a good go :smileywink:

Re: Dynamic Theme Creator Software

id say simply if they released a dynamic theme creator they would loose alot of money, because no one will pay for them on the store

I don't pay for things like this anyway so some basic dynamic theme creator would be good to me.  Just something that could change static images would be good, make a giant gif type file .

No I don't have no xbox, wii or other console, so every game is a PS3 exclusive as far as I'm concerned.

Re: Dynamic Theme Creator Software

According to Sony and various Developers creating Dynamic Themes is a lot more complex than the standard themes. I remember a article saying that it takes about 2 weeks to create a Dynamic Theme by the developers (eg heavy rain, etc).

Re: Dynamic Theme Creator Software

They'll never release it publicly  - The community would create themes 10 times better than the ones they try sell us,  as with static themes.

Dynamic Themes

With normal themes your essentially just replacing images. Dynamic themes require 3D models, scripting, animations, and more.
You're essentially creating a in-game cutscene, because of this complexity there are too many things that can break.
In a normal theme it's very 1,0.
Replace image..... yes
find new image.... yes
done.

Once you start messing around with a 3D scene, there's more things to check for. I agree the community would be able to think of some awesome ideas, it's turning those ideas into a theme that gets complicated :smileyhappy:

Re: Dynamic Themes

it's not so much about dynamic theme creators being available, it's about custom dynamic themes being allowed in the first place... The community usually takes care of the tools themselves eventually.

Yeah they would be more difficult and time consuming but there's people out there who would relish the chance to try their 3d skills on doing just this. For some it's practicing skills they're studying and intend on using when they move on to jobs. It's just another front where Sony has been more closed off than they should be.
