But most of the boot animations available from the internet are not very good and perhaps not to your taste. If you want to have a boot animation in Android that speaks out for what you stand for, then you may have to create a boot animation yourself. Fortunately, you can create a boot animation file for Android smartphones easily using the free tool called Lucky Boot Animator. This tool takes a video file, extracts the image frames and packs them up into an Android boot animation file that you can use following the instructions in this article : how to change boot animations in Android.

After launching the Lucky Boot Animator application in Windows, you can open a video file from the File menu bar. This video file shall be played by the small Windows Media Player window on the left. You can play it in there and select the start and end points of the section that you want to use in the boot animation.

You can choose the output folder for the boot animation files from the menubar – under the “Settings” sub-menu.
