Full sized live/animated background can be used in various ways, such as in website background, or use to fill HTML / SVG elements. You can also use them as slide / video background.
Here is an example of using animated pattern as background of an icon animation:
As some examples, we use lots of animated background in loading.io, which you can find in following pages:
All patterns can be generated in SVG / APNG / GIF formats. PNG sequence or static PNG are also available. To choose the right format for yourself, you should check the compatibility and quality of these file format before using them.
Provides the best compatibility, while big in size and low in quality. supports only up to 256 colors at most.
Supported by all browsers, even by old browser such as IE5 or Netscape.
Gives the best quality and file size but is CPU-intensive to render. Animation is more likely to lag when browser is busy
Animated SVG is not supported by IE or Edge.
Provides similar quality to SVG and is supported by most modern browsers, including Microsoft Edge.
However, its file size is proportional to image size, and isn't supported by older browser like IE.
"Loading Backgrounds" is loading.io's animated, full-sized SVG background generator. It provides vector-based high quality backgrounds that can be used for different purposes, including backgrounds for website, video, poster or presentation slides.
Loading backgrounds are all by default designed as animation with customizable settings.
You can customize the backgrounds by your own design and save the configurations directly in loading.io for future use.
Loading Backgrounds mainly focuses on providing SVG-based, full-sized animated background, so performance is limited by the complexity of SVG itself.
Hopefully, we launched an experimental service "makebackground.io" which generates higher resolution, minimalist style live backgrounds / wallpapers, with png or webm output up to 8 sec animation. Here are some samples of the backgrounds provided:
makebackground.io are still in its alpha stage, but we would like to keep working on it or even integrate it with loading.io if it gets some tractions in the future. If you want to take a look of it, you can follow the button below to go to makebackground.io, and leave your comment or suggestion there. :)
Any questions or suggestion? Feel free to leave comment here. :)
turning off the edge smoothing option might help
By its design, GIF is quite limited in quality especially with transparency on. If you got GIF with colored border around edges of generated image, you can turning off
Edge Smoothing option and try again.
This option will give crispy edges around generated image, but might lead to pixelated result, so please use it at your discretion. For more information, check our guide about improving GIF image quality.
