How can I create animated cursors?

An animation (animated cursor in particular) is a sequence of images, or frames, that is displayed over time. Each frame varies slightly from the preceding frame, creating the illusion of movement when the frames are viewed in quick succession. Animated cursors are widely used in Windows (for example, in some programs use cursor animation while loading).

We can advise you Aha-Soft ArtCursors for creating animated and static cursors both.
