    I did not like the character put in front of pure white background. That's a bit sterile.

    Hello!, the white background is quite bright, it makes the characters stand out!!, light blue or creme might be nice though??

    Why not go for a different olour for each character. You could then extend this into the episodes by associating each character with their colour perhaps. In the same way you could associate a different musical motife with each character (a la "Peter and the Wolf") This sort of association/familiarity is common in numerous children's programmes.

    i see what you mean!, with the psychlidelic grid with colours is significant with the colours of the 3 characters, with the clothes there, wearing,

    I will take on your constructive critisism and have a play today with the intro by trying different colours behind the characters like blue, pink, yellow etc,

    Hi, all

    I have had a play with the intro, and i really like the colour in place of the white character backgrounds, and glad of the help/tips by Tim and XXLRay! so here's the video of the new official Intro!
    This is the final cut!!

    I think that's better - don't thank me, it was BigRay who pointed out the clinical background.

    But taking that theme (harsh whites) a bit further, I'd suggest the whites are too white in the graphics (on the Flying a kite, the grids and even the titles). If you compare them to the images of the charaters the whites are much brighter - which makes teh characters look a little dull. You might try toning down the whites a bit so that instead of being RGB 255,255,255 you make them RGB 235,235,235. Incidentally 235, 235, 235 is the maximum many broadcast channels will accept.

    this is not a criticism, by the way, just something (yet another thing!) to consider.

    It looks much better with the different colors - I'd also add 0.2 seconds for each character as they go by just a shade too quickly

    Thanks for the help! , I worked last night and this morning on the intro, and found some other errors too, and ive fixed them, also the characters now stay on the screen for a bit longer!!

    The other probs were, black screen shots of (Harding Productions) were not all the same shade, and the red ZEY logo flickered a bit, and the grid wasn't right, and the squares within, needed to be a bit faster!!, so i have put the errors right, and it looks great now!!

    Here's the BEST EDIT!! (3rd Edit)
