Hey Dave. if your build isn't much different to 0.11.1 then something 
like this should suffice:

 wget http://www.zenadsl6252.zen.co.uk/dotknob/spectral-dot-knob_100_frames_31x31.png
 sudo cp spectral-dot-knob_100_frames_31x31.png /usr/local/share/phasex/pixmaps/knob.png

using which version you prefer and your phasex installation prefix. 
then, re/start phasex :)

it determines the dimensions and number of frames from the image,
with the proviso that the frames are square and concatenated from
left to right.

this mean you can use blender to rerender the sequence in any 
(reasonable) size and just copy them over the installed files to
use them. same goes for any other similarly structured animations.

at the time, i intended to submit another patch to add recoloring
and a file chooser for the animations but then i intend to do an
awful lot of things these days and subsequently don't.
i'm not sure that Will Weston (phasex author) is currently available
to approve patches anyway.

if you are not au fait with blender and want some specific changes
to the animations, just give me a shout and i'll see if i can oblige
at all. 

hope that helps.
