We need some serious details on this, such as: 1) What file format do you want them in? You say no larger than 1meg in size, so that would seem you might want TIF. Or PSD? 2) And are we simply to e-mail them to you? Thanks.

I appologize, they can be in .GIF or .JPG format and can be a little over a meg in size but not too much. Yes, please mail them to Jack

Are you looking for animated or still banners? Or both? Since I do web stuff for a living, I was kind of surprised to see the file sizes you're willing to accept. For example, America Online would have a fit over a 1 meg file. I just wanted to make sure is all. Thanks!

You heard right SmallFry :o) The image can be 1 meg in size to get clear color depth and results!! Jack

I'm of the same mind as Smallfry on this one. 1 meg is an extremely large file for a web graphic in .gif or .jpg format. Are you planning to optimize or should we do it? In other words, do you want a final piece or something you can scale/crop on your own. Regards. p.s. do you want Poser to be the main software used or is it a free for all?

Hi Smirk, Actually I was thinking about doing the scaling down, but if you wish to, that is alright also. And no, it doesn't have to be done by Poser, it can even be done in freehand. This is a forum, not just for Poser users, but any graphic user :o) Jack

No there isn't a limit to the number of Banners you wish to submit. And I have to admitt ignorance in the area of shockwave. I am not sure if the banner program that we use supports it. I guess the only way to find out is to try it :o) Jack

I just noticed you forgot to answer smallfry as to if they can be animated or still banners.

In order for someone to view shockwave they have to have the plug-in. So as a web designer I would shy away from it. Thats just my opinion.

Hmm...I see there is some minor confusion here. Let, me please clarify. The Banner will be Renderosity's new Logo and will be posted on the forum and also used as banners for other sites to link to ours. Something like: Renderosity The Graphic Forum.. or somthing to that effect. Be creative and feel free to send in as many submissions that you like :o) Jack

do we have time till the 29. dec. to send them in, or does it end today (better yesterday), as it says on the calendar...

Jack D. Kammerer ( posted at 12:00AM Mon, 13 December 1999

actually it ends on the 29th, sorry about the confusion, it seems the calander program doesn't work as well as I would like it too... Sorry about that. Jack
