My new pack of 250 quality professional animation backdrops for CrazyTalk Animator, converted from Odd Job Jack to .jpg and sorted into new themed folders. This is my selection of straight backgrounds, those which I think are worth having and usable, chosen from the 7,000 .png files in the ‘camera’ folders of the Odd Job Jack Season 3 art assets release. The original assets are freely and officially available in a torrent at www.oddjobjack.com if you want even more.

Thanks also to the developer of the Windows utility Extract All Files, which enabled the automated extraction of 7,000 .png files from thousands of otherwise very fiddly camera sub-folders in the Odd Job Jack assets archive, which meant they could then be quickly scanned by eye for suitable images. Thanks also to Adobe for the automated .jpg mass conversion utility in Photoshop CS3. And finally thanks to BlueMidget, who originally tipped me off about the Odd Job Jack art assets release torrent, and to Smiley Guy Studios for releasing it to the public for free usage.
