Cover object in image in a substance


Recommended Posts

I am working on a video which has a scene with a person getting covered in milk. I couldn't find anything else on the net (maybe I'm just using the wrong search terms). So how would one go about covering an object from an image in a fluid (milk, slime, honey etc)? Everything I've tried looks like rubbish.

If what you are trying to achieve is a motion graphic effect rather than a static graphic effect, you will need a program like Adobe After effects, which is a commerial product. There are free + open source alternatives that can do the job, such as Natron and Blender, but they are not easy to learn to use effectively.

I get that, but I only need to add such an effect for one still image, so I wanted to know how to do in in Paint.net

It is a good thing to ask questions ir helps as a guide to solutions.

There is a saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words".

Provide an example of what you are trying to achieve an maybe someone here can come up with a similar result that fits your need.

I basically want to do something like what is shown here: https://blog.designcrowd.com/article/892/creating-honey-covered-objects-photoshop-tutorial

I was worried the methods shown might not be applicable to Paint.net (Though I am kinda hoping I'm proven wrong).

You have a great tutorial that explains the necessary steps and Paint.NET has those capablities.

You will need to use a bunch of layers and a good artist hand & eye when using the tools, but go for it!

Hello @More-Than-Weird Al and welcome to the forum :)

 

An easier way than the tutorial, would be for you to find some milk images on the web and remove the background via:  https://www.remove.bg/

 

Have your person on one layer, the milk on another and use Shape 3D to 'blend' the milk.

In all honesty, I wanted a more uneven looking splatter so this won't work. Thanks anyway and sorry for the late response.

Also I never knew you could combine 3d shapes with the plugin so I learnt something useful anyhow.
