seems like you made it, niko, congratulations! :)
I would suggest a different format than .gif though, for the obvious color-palette-limitations..
And hey, its just a 5mw pointer, right? ;-)

I know, I made it in .gif because it was the most universal animation format. Flash uses the processor all the time to render the vectorized image and this would be a long runtime banner and thus I made it in Photoshop.

The palette issues were because they asked me to keep the filesize under 512k when the original size was 1,3MB... quite tough, I had to play A LOT with settings.

EDIT: Thanks, Krutz :)

I hope it averages 4-5mW like the ones from the members from the CNI GB :)

TJ: Thanks ;)

It doesn't acctually matter is it 3 or 4 or 5 mW :D
The wavelenght is the closest one to the reference of 555.5 nm, the most visible color.Should be very much visible, when wattage is taken into account.

532 is closer to 555 than 593.5
Holy cr'p really :D :D
I actually though it would be more visible than green. How could i miscalculate it?!
Ok than i agree with whoever said before: It's just a 5 mW pointer, although i say 1 mW :D

hmm, it said "preferrably flash".. ;-)

ah well, quite many hours "wasted" on that laser-hobby, again, for that banner. i refreshed my flash-knowledge with this at least.
still a nice competition, and there can only be one lucky winner, not?

Exactly, "preferably flash".

Never think that you wasted hours on this; see, I always learn new things whenever I design anything. For example, when the Laser-Wave competition was done I discovered that it was possible to animate with Photoshop and so I learned how to animate with it (didn't take me long since I already knew how to animate in Flash, but it was a good discovery indeed). For the modwerx banner I learned how to polish stuff even more, learned how to bevel stuff without using global light, which I had never tried before... and the list goes on and on.

I wanted to attach the file (.avi) of my banner (I never got time to finish it, so it's incomplete). But the attachment window says a security token is missing...

Does any one now how I could display it?
