I did search it, looked in pivot tutorials, and I couldn't find it. I found one for Easytoon, but that doesn't help because my animation is pivot. I also googled it and I found everything EXCEPT what I was looking for. Can anyone answer my question?

Well your avatar is an Image. Images come in several formats, one of which is the .gif format. Pivot generates an animated gif that is your animation, so all you have to do is host your animation on an image-hosting site (http://imageshack.us/) and then put the "direct link" into the url bar in avatar options.

What i do is make an animation for pivot ( go to options and do 125 by 125 pixels) I know it's small but you have to. Then save as gif. I usually go to edit avatar and just click browse and find it. Upload it ,save, and there you go.

Easier to animate it in 500x500 and then scale down by 4.

I tried that. It said it was an invalid file

Hmm...seems saving it as a .gif won't let it animate. Any tips on that?

saving it as a gif does let it animate. that's why it's a gif. you probably just made it too big so when it resized when you uploaded it as your avatar it got rid of all the animation

your animation shouldn't be so long that it's too big of of a file size if it's just going in your avatar. Choose a smaller animation.

when you save the animation, change the resize to 4.

Hey thanks guys, changing the size to 4 worked, it animates...notice that the visible size also changed...

oh well, size 3 won't work since it resizes to big.
either remake that animation that looks like it took three seconds to make anyways with a smaller dimension or use a gif resizing program
