Can you make a small tut for the use of Alphamask? I'm not as glad with my edges as I should be :/

Here's a link to a tutorial showcasing the AlphaMask plugin from our own Crazy Man Dan. It's how I learned, and the one I still refer to when I need it.

Wow. Like the original, but with added crunchiness! The technique is awesome.

Most certainly something to try the first chance that I get!

The small details are the best, like the little shines, and also how the object becomes more out of focus the further away it is. Subtle, but adds to the overall result greatly.

I don't usually pop into the Tutorials section unless I'm e-mailed about a reply to my own tutorials, but yours was the first I stepped on whilst in here, and it's making want to visit more often.

The "Roll/Rotate Orb" is included in the Rotate/Zoom function under the Layers menu. (Layers > Rotate/Zoom)

Alternatively, you could press Ctrl + Shift + Z to bring up the dialog.

Hope this helps.

Sure. Instead of using feather blur, you should refer to barkbark00's realistic chrome text tutorial by clicking here and look for the mention of "alpha mask". Use the apha mask technique for cleaner lines, as Jake2K said. Show us your work when your done with it.

oops. Corrected link above.

I like the backdrop it's on-looks like polished metal, especially like the dots. That would make a neat tabletop!

As for your "not becoming transparent-ness" part, you can use Transparency and turn the slider all the way up to 100%. It saves a little time. Still, great tutorial. :D

Heh. I just realised how hard it is to see the (I guess you would call it an extrusion) against that background.
