Request For Lightning Tutorial

Recommended Posts

We actually have far too many lightning tuts :shock:

But this is the way I do it (from a tut):

1: create a linear gradient wit one control point at the top and bottom

2: Render clouds with a blend mode of difference

3: Invert the colours

4:go to adjustments -> levels and on the right side, there should be 3 evenly spaced slides, put the middle one right at the bottom

5: Go to adjustments -> Curves and remove all but the tick of the color you want as a base.

6: move the curve till you have your preffered color of Lightning (just move it a bit up a bit about 45 degrees)

Does that help?
