Chain Links Made With Pyrochild's TRAIL

Recommended Posts

Some time ago, I saw a tutorial on making a chain using Pyrochild's TRAIL plug-in.


I remember that it involved stretching an oval, and then using transparent gradient to "disappear" the over and under bits of the chain links.


I thought I had saved it. 


Can't find it. And can't duplicate it from memory.


Can anyone point me to that tutorial?


Many thanks....

There's welshblue's chain link tutorial. It doesn't use Trail, but the step where the rectangle selection is stretched could also be accomplished with Trail. (And perhaps someone in a follow-up comment suggests that.).


Yup, I found that one, and it is an excellent one, but not QUITE what I was looking for.  In fact, that was the first one that came up when searching.

Hope you don't have to much trouble following it:)


Me too. I was watching some of the other videos. I really wish the videographer had, in the comments, placed a list of the commands, because it can be hard to follow, especially when on a laptop with a smallish screen.


I love watching the videos, though, because if something doesn't look right when I'm trying to do something, it usually means I missed a step.
