I'm sorry if this topic is too old but I really want to talk more about this.

I was trying to find an easier way to anti-aliasing than MadJik's solution; and blooper101's and/or Ash's didn't work for me (seriously Ash, have you even tried?). I wonder if Cris can tell how he made his picture.

I found an pretty ok way to do this after 30 minutes looking everywhere and trying every (kinda blurring) plugin. The only one that worked was the motion blur. If you're interested in how it works, tell me.

This is the ad I made for my class with that simple technique (the background)

Still, Cris, can you tell us how you made yours?

I really loved to try this, thank you David! But actually I am not very satisfied with my result, do not know where I am doing wrong (if dragging the shades in the corners not enough or too much) but here is my try anyway:

Madjik work is astonishing as usual and Oma: only an artist's eye can see mountains where others see just smooth slopes :D

I think your problem is that the gradients aren't quite transparent enough. Try dialing down the opacity a bit.

Good work, though. :-)

I think this technique is not perfect

There you can see really nice aurora http://images.google.com/images?hl=ru&c ... a=N&tab=wi

Who said it was perfect? I don't know anyone who said "perfect." It isn't trying to be perfect. Do you think you can do better? Post a tut! :-)

Making that in PDN would be nearly impossible. Anyway, this tut is Pwntriageificateifieoawesomeified!

I vote for a sticky!

Thanks. :-) I appreciate that.
