First: Download and install GIMP.
Next: Extract the Vtex converter to anywhere. ex.. Desktop
Then: Open GIMP and get ready for Step 2
Now that you have GIMP open, Go File>New. You want the settings to be 128x128 pixels for this Tut (for size matters). Fill it with Transparency with RGB color selected (you can refer to Screenshot A). Now Click OK and make your picture. If you are making an animated picture make two.
Now with your pictures made, you need to save them. Save them IN THIS EXACT FORMAT:
Also Don't save with RLE Compression!!! (refer to screenshot B)
Now, open up your Vtex folder and go Vtex/hl2/materialsrc/animated. Make sure its materials'rc'. Bring both of your images into this folder. now, right click in your animated folder and make a new text file; name it "spray.txt". In that text file, add this:
Now set the endframe's "1" to however many pictures you have. I have 2 so mine would be:

-hope this was helpful,
It says at convert.bat:
"Error intializing texture hl2/materialsrc/animated/spray.tga"
Gives another error if I change my spray001 name to spray.tga. Then it sais same but with ...animated/spray001.tga. If I change another one to spray001.tga it still keeps giving same thing.
This is a skinning or maybe a GUI tutorial, but defenatly not an animating tutorial. The animation tuts section is meant for tuts regarding how to animate models, not about how to turn pictures into a gif that CSS can read.
Also, a tutorial like this was already made, with greater attention to the detail and eye-candy.
Sorry, but disapprove for wrong section/duplicate.
