Night Vision Text Effect

Recommended Posts

I am hoping someone will be able to help me with this. I followed this tutorial and was able to replicate the result fairly well (very well written tut :D ). I did notice however that my final result has a lot more extra "noise"? I guess around the outside, the green dots. Now I started to try to emulate the animation as per the original post (which looks very cool), however I ran into a few problems. The first one being - the tut I was following for animation mentioned to duplicate the text layer 12 times (obviously for the separate frames) however when I do this it becomes a big green blobby mess. The other problem being - does anyone know how I could get the same sort of distorted "interference" type look as the OP?

 

TLDR: I would like a simple animation tut to help replicate the OP animation, I would also like a point in the right direction of how the OP achieves the "interference" effect in his animation.

 

Thanks for any help guys!

Not sure if this is better than the original or not, but there may need to be a tutorial on it... ; )

Better is so subjective.
Better for what purpose?
My purpose was to uncover the process and a creatively utilize it.
My tutorial was the deconstruction of the original GIF.

When I taught art, my goal was to teach a process, provide advice to learners on how to apply the process,

and the synthesis came when the learner effectively could use the process for their own creative ends.

To deconstruct a GIF animation:
Make sure that Simon Brown's AnimGIF.dll is the in File type folder of Paint.NET

Rename the .GIF extension to .AGIF
Open the *.agif file in Paint.NET and it will open each GIF frame as a layer.

To create a GIF animation:

Here  are the basics from midoras

So do I keep the green and black colors for the Halftone effect or is that just for Seismograph?

 

I think you should pay attention to the order of layers merging.

Now merge the layers. First, merge down the layers Glow copy, Glow and Background, then Seismograph and Background. Finally, merge down the WhiteText copy, WhiteText, and Background layers.
