bjobrien Posted January 27, 2012 Share Posted January 27, 2012 (edited) Hi all, I've come back to paint.net after a couple of years hiatus... the last time I was using it was for some really simple image stitching. Now, I'm trying to do something a bit more complex for this newbie, but obviously something others have done before and even written some quick tutorials on. Alas, apparently I'm too much of a newbie to follow these tutorials. I'm trying to make a neat planet image for some hobby stuff I'm working on. I have an image (2048x1024) as a texture (from the program Fractal Terrains). I can render it into 3D using Shape3D (AWESOME plugin, btw). Now I'm trying to add the inner and outer glow on the planet. I found here someone who had posted a quick tutorial on how to do this, but I guess I'm not well enough versed in PDN to follow it exactly... my results aren't getting me where I want to be (yet, I know it works because others are praising the author). So, I'm turning here to see if someone could help further "dumb down" this few lines of tutorial into something a total drooling idiot could use? 'Cause, apparently that's me. Anyhow, here's the link to the original Glow tutorial. Here's an example of the type of effect I'm looking for -- the purplish halo around the planet. Help very much appreciated. Thanks, Brennan Edited January 27, 2012 by bjobrien Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
