First of all, Spare me if i dont do this right because this is my first tutorial
Alrighty, In this tutorial ill be teaching you how to make Something similar to this.
Pretty Neat huh?
Well Heres How it goes.
Oh and before we start the only plugins you will need is the Random Maze Plugin Found in madjik's Plugin Pack.
Ok Step One:
Start with a canvas Size (doesn't really matter what size i used 425x150)
Fill your background layer with Black
(I didn't really need a picture here but i figured what the heck.)
Make a new layer .
Set Your Primary color to any color really (Darker colors seem to work better in my opinion.)
Then Run Random Maze 2 ( Effects->Render->Random Maze 2)
You can Mess with the settings to try to make a different effect but these are the settings i use.
Set Primary color to a different color, use a lighter color then before.
Run Random Maze 2 again with the same settings as before.
Now you should have some along the lines of this.
Probably the most important step in the whole process.
Run A Fragment Blur, ( Effects->Blurs->Fragment) like so
For The Fragment Count, you can mess with the number but dont go above 20.
You can ajust the Rotation although it doesn't change much.
Dont mess with the Distance leave it how it is.
Now you should get something like this.
Now Sharpen the image like show below :Sharpen: . ( Effects->Photo->Sharpen)
Next, Add a glow :Glow: .
Your going to have to tinker (yes, tinker) with the settings untill you get the disired effect you want, you dont want the glow to be to bright though because you will be repeating this step a couple times.
Step Seven: Repeat steps 5 & 6 2-4 times untill the effect looks good.
Some outcomes i got real quickly,
Messing with Different colors ^^
Messing with Colors and a transparent gradient ^^
One of my Better outcomes ^^
Alright well i hope you enjoyed my first tutorial
