THIS! This is actually what I had in mind! Is there ANY way to make it animated on its own without hovering? If there's no way, let's just leave it at that, looks good. The ONLY thing that bugs me hard now and I can't change no matter what I try, is this new border that comes out around my image, same as before....balala wrote: ↑January 26th, 2019, 3:19 pmWith this code? Weird, because using your code, with thickness set to 12, this is what I get:

Ok, then we'll use ActionTimer plugin measure to animate the rainbow. Here is a first attempt. If it's not good enough, we'll improve it. The animation is started when you're hovering the mouse over the skin. Initially a random color is generated, then, when you're hovering the mouse over, it changes randomly, for 1 second:Notepad.gifCode: Select all

Balala, I am so sorry....so sorry for bothering you with this, but, I really, REALLY, am at my wits end. I don't know which code is the faulty one, I am 100% sure I have a wrong code somewhere....but where??? That's what I don't get.
