Firey Text

Recommended Posts

I'm new and was referred by a friend. I was amazed with Paint.NET and what all it could do, even more amazed that it was free. :)

I've only been at this for a couple weeks now and I feel that I'm a natural when it comes to making stuff. I usually only read a tutorial once (twice most) before I understand it.

Here's my result:

I didn't use it on text, but on a picture (I've been wanting to do this for a long time, and your tutorial is just very easy to follow, so I used your tutorial!).

See my result here:

(I've also added a littlebit of Zoom Blur)

Will you please put some pictures after every step? sorry but i didn't get it. i made the background layer with black and with white fonts, i blurred it. Then after making the second layer, the clouds, no matter what effect i made nothing changes in the picture. sorry for being novice. :cry:

Just tried this tut - after the "how to start a fire"-tut (which was so easy to follow through) I thought this might also be easy enough for me.

Well -- no, it wasn't considering the result. Yes it was easy to follow, but it came out a whole lot different than it should have. It's by far too "orderly". So far, I have no idea what I did wrong for it to come out THIS way. :?:

I don't know.. maybe I should have done the clouds over and over again? Maybe I should have used a different -not so straight- font?

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well anyway, I thought I might as well start playing around a bit and see what I can make of it - apart from the fact that I didn't get the letters to burn... so I created another level, copied the text on it and started playing (like always: didn't take any notes - I should be a bit more disciplined at my age *lol*). Well but here it is:

I made another one, this time trying to experiment a bit more with the pic. Here's what I got:

I'm still not happy with the text part .. too orderly, not as fuzzy edges as shown in the tut. Maybe I am using "wrong" fonts? Or does anybody have a suggestion how I could get the "flames" more like flaming out of the letters? Haven't found a way to do it yet... to my own dismay.

So, my playing around with the pic as a whole was kind of compensation for that, in order to make up a bit on what I think is still lacking on the clouds/text layer.

  1. [*:3rfbhjl7]Create the text layer, white on black:
    1. [*:3rfbhjl7]Use a large, blocky font
      [*:3rfbhjl7]Blur this layer with a gaussian blur so that the details of the text are still recognizable (holes in letters like 'A' shouldn't end up closed). One eighth the point size works well. The stronger the blur, the less readable the final output will be.

[*:3rfbhjl7]Create the difference clouds layer

  1. [*:3rfbhjl7]Set the blending mode for the clouds layer to 'Negation'
    [*:3rfbhjl7]Render clouds with the scale for the clouds at roughly twice the font size.
    [*:3rfbhjl7]Repeat it a bunch to get a whispy look

I dont get this part. What do I have to do excactly?

Hello all, :mrgreen:

I've tried it very often to get that nice effect but it did'nt work. :(

I'm from Germany so reading something english is not easy for me :cry:

I've tried to translate it but there were always some probelms. :(

Could someone send me the tutorial in german please?

Screenshots won't be bad. :D

Thank you for all,

Yep, I registered here just to ask, what am I doing wrong, when the cloud and the text layer hide each other out of view? If I flatten the image, only the context on the layer on top ends up in the flattened image.

Thanks in advance.
