Create a custom animation file

Last updated July 26th, 2023

You can create a custom device boot animation by uploading images to play in sequence and setting the desired image orientation, dithering and size. Once created and uploaded, you can preview and verify the animation before adding it to a profile and assigning it to devices.

Create an animation

To create a custom animation:

  1. Click Library in the left-hand navigation menu and click the MEDIA tab.

  2. Click ADD MEDIA in the upper right-hand corner.

  3. Click CREATE ANIMATION to create a new animation sequence.

  4. On the Upload a PNG sequence screen, upload a minimum of two and a maximum of 99 PNG images to use as the animation frames.


    Ensure the PNG files you upload are the same dimension and resolution as the target device’s screen dimensions and display resolution to ensure an optimal display.

  5. Give your animation a name and configure the following settings:

    • Rotation — Select the animation’s degree of rotation.
    • Sizing — Select how the animation will display on the device.
    • Dithering — Specify the amount of dither used to reduce the file size. Note that higher settings will decrease the file size but may affect the animation quality.
  6. Click GENERATE ANIMATION when completed to create the animation.

Upload an animation

You can also upload an existing animation as a QMG file.

Select UPLOAD ANIMATION from the ADD MEDIA screen, and upload your animation file. Only .QMG formatted files are supported.

  1. Click Library in the left-hand navigation menu.
  2. Select a media file that isn’t currently being used with a profile.
  3. Click DELETE MEDIA in the upper right-hand corner.
  4. Click DELETE FILE to confirm the file’s deletion.
