There are various theme making tools around, I would recommed to use this:

https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-usagi-3ds-theme-editor-net-library-testers-wanted.412233/

But bear in mind that the animattion I mentioned will only move when you scrooll through your apps in home menu, and is frame based with a limit, so you have to figure out how you sort each frame and how to edit it in order to work as you wish.
oh i see ... last question then is it really worth the effort or are they pretty much lame ?

I reccomend you to download pre-made ones before anything, you can do it with Anemone, but again, the majority of them are not animated. In my personal opeinion, is only worth it when you like and know what you want to achieve. For example, it adds a nice touch to 8-bit themed games, as you can insert sprites for moving chararcters and it will look as the real deal. But if you want higher quality animations, then is a no go.

You mean something like the default plain-color themes? Is possible to make custom ones like those, but IDK if that theme format has been reversed already, as there are official themes that use this format, such as MoodMatrix from Ace Attorney and one from Monster Hunter. Also, in japan, more plain colors where added, If I remember these where magenta, cyan and cynamon.

Japan themes use the same formats as western ones, they just got more variety and beauty themes.
Here is an example of animated bottom screen, but the top is a plain image:



And here an example of top curved and animated, it has the bottom screen frame-animated as well:

Yeah is easy to install them, but as them are oficial theme released by Nintendo, I cant link them here, so Google is your friend. These come in pakages with 50 theme each and are in cía format, and you can select them in the theme menu in the home menú itself.

    @Veho the magic knob to increase was the green new deal ,and the keystone pipeline
    +1
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Did they shut down the pipeline?
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And it's no longer working?
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    75% built and it got shut down
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Was it ever operational?
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Costing a ton of jobs, environmental disaster, loss of a ton of money
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    They still ship the oil, just in trucks instead of a pipe
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Okay so the pipeline (extension) was never operational, never worked, and shipping that oil was never cheaper because of it.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    They do this stock investment thing Veho called futures trading
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    It's complex but yeah in spite of it not being operational (yet) they had planned on it being so
  • Veho @ Veho:
    They do this thing called "counting their chickens before they hatch".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's the same as when publishers claim piracy is costing them billions in "projected" earnings.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Well knowing where you are going is usually a good thing
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Looking before jumping is also a good thing.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    If you follow the money the truth is usually there
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    A strong hunch of mine is that a cheap oil pipe from Alaska would have hurt the middle East and lowered prices. If I was a big investor in oil, I would probably not want that at all.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Yeah and the truth is oil companies reported record profits yet there's no room to reduce oil prices at the pump because, um, economy.

    Well Biden said he was going after the big oil companies 🥰
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Looks like he failed.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    His record seems to imply otherwise, but politicians say the opposite of what they really mean
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Like most politicians, he
    has so many corporate hands up his ass it's a wonder he could move at all.

    I'm sorry, that's not bribery, that's "lobbying".
