AVI files


Is there any site to download or buy those cute avi animations shown in some dialog boxes ? Like the scanning avi in norton antivirus ?

Would appreciate if you let me know someone who can design  such animations.

Most of the common Windows avis like the files copying and searching are an option on the VS.NET install. They are part of the deployment extras or something similar and install with the old common icon set.

Those are all pretty old though, and I would assume that you could find better somewhere. It's an interesting question though, because there are plenty of icon collectoins, but I've never seen a set of the animations.

I think these are animated GIF's, not AVI's.
You can find free ones at sites like
etc, etc
Or it seems you can edit your own with an animated gif
editor; i've never tried that but there
are several free editors on the net.

Yes, I know about the sample AVI, but they are not suitable :(

I've always wondered if there is some guy who develops such AVI.
