Zoom in effect


Recommended Posts

This is an effect I came across a while back:

-Use the Barcode Plugin (use search) to make lines all the way across the image. Don't encode many more than seven characters, or it'll be too distorted.

-Use the Rectangular to Polar plugin.

Ta-daa!

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I guess you duplicate the layer befour you flip it vertically, don't you?

edit

tried it, makes no big difference though, just a bit darker (but why did you flip the image?)

edit²

Gradient bars (1st color black, 2nd color alpha=0)

aah...I see! :) I just switched the 1st and 2nd color...same effect ^^

Flip so the black lines will be around the edges and not in the center after using rect to pol.

2nd color alpha=0 so the "zoom" lines doesn't cover the image at the bottom layer.

Wouldn't MadJik's Light Rays plugin with a transparent secondary colour and a few slider tweaks work?

The light rays were done on its own layer, duplicated, then twisted around. With more time I could have done better, thinner lines, opacity, more lines and such but I just wanted to get the general idea across.

Light Rays is much more even; Barcode makes it more random.
