Firey Text

Recommended Posts

I've actually used this for the logo on my site redesign. You can see it at http://www.carbonize.co.uk/New

You will see I cut out the text then redid the letters in black, blurred them, moved them down a layer and then flattened it.

Very nice! Web page looks good...may I suggest alpha masking instead of cutting out the text? Gives about the same effect. :)

Okay, I'm joining the confused :?: I got to step 2.c and I repeated it over 25 times.

Before the clouds effect:

11758_d03ff4b4cae6cd916a36563adc3d730c

After clouds 1 time and the 26th time:

11758_1fb8fe59060412369d321e44aabdf4b3

I'm confused... :?: Any help please?

Before anyone asks just so no one troubles themselves to ask the questions: I placed the text on a different layer, I set the clouds layer to negation, clouded at exactly double my font and blurred at 1/8th, I can't get a cloud at all? I'm running 3.20. Please I need help and am really confused.

Thanks in advance!

It´s me again, after 2 months and try 500 times I finally get it

For those who still struggleling with the tutorial some tips

Step #1.

On the layer text white font and black background. Choose Arial black, font size #108, gausian blur #20.

STEP #2.

Add New Layer (clouds)

On layer clouds on the window (LAYERS) double click on the layer to open (Layer Properties) on blending mode box choose ( DIFFERENCE )

On windows clouds effects >render>clouds choose Scale #510, roughness #0.45, blend mode box choose ( NEGATION ). PRESS OK then press ( CTRL+F ) and you will see how the text cange with the clouds and stop when you get a form you like it. almost 20 times

STEP #3

The same like Tom Jackson tutorial viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2758

Menu>adjustments> levels hit reset output area change to 128, 2.0, 0.

STEP #4

The same like Tom Jackson tutorial

Menu>adjustments> levels hit reset Input area change 210. then

IMPORTANT: On this step on the windows ( Layers ) move layer text first place and clouds layer second.

Then double click on layer text to open layer properties and choose blend mode box ( NEGATION )

Step #5

From here is the same like Tom Jackson tutorial

I cant figure out how to make it firey text but keep the black background and not have a firey background.

Draw text on the background layer and select and delete the text making that part transparent. Create the fire underneath and merge the layers. Then use that same magic wand tool to delete the background and if you like add a layer of blue underneath.

Using the magic wand to delete the background! Cheating, I tell you! :lol:

Just kidding...that's one way to do it...this tutorial is difficult because it's all in the settings really...it varies with each try... :?

I've got an idea. Let's continuously bug the admins to re-sticky this until they do so!

Kidding... :P

Yeah, that'll guarantee it being locked. :-D

I got it, I had changed the color of my primary and secondary colors to red and black before I rendered the clouds.
