Following up on his PS3 Rich Appearance Maker (R.A.M.), today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer Corwin75 has released Animated Theme Creator version 1.01 followed by v1.20 with details below.

Download: PS3 Animated Theme Creator v1.01 / PS3 Animated Theme Creator v1.20

To quote, roughly translated: Hi, Today I spoke to one of your members winch03200 and he gave me an idea.

Seeing the difficulty of people to create animated themes so I decided to create a small program (which will get better) is to quickly create file "raf" to integrate with your theme.

You need 7 files you can find in the SDK 3.41 from Sony:

  • raf_compiler.exe
  • raf_geom.exe
  • raf_anim.exe
  • raf_script.exe
  • raf_pack.exe
  • raf_compiler.inf
  • dds2gtf.exe

You just select the images you want to use and choose how the theme:

  • Video Displays images quickly to simulate a video
  • Slide Show Displays images with a deteriorating

Then click on "create raf" to create the file "raf" that will be used to create your theme.


v1.01 Added:

  • Debug mode (configuration)
  • SlideShow-parameter

v1.20 Added:

  • Slide horizontal (scrolling images left to right)
  • Correction of problems with the files next to the exe

There have been a couple of theme makers and tutorials for making themes, but creating a dynamic theme was always a bit hard. Hopefully this makes it a bit easier.
