I got carried away. I started off revisiting that globe animation from long ago... The editing was done mostly in GIF Animator 5.
After much playing with that, I saved it as an AVI file. Then I used the AVI as the image on the display of this laptop, in Ulead COOL 3D Production Studio.
In C3D PS, I saved as individual TGA images and animated it all in Ulead GIF Animator 5.
