Carbon Fibre tut


Recommended Posts

Hello hope this is the right section for this post.(if not delete it)

I want to ask if there are indeed carbon fibre tuts here. I used the search.net but nothing showed up and i've been looking for a good tut for almost 3 months now :shock: .

EDIT: just seen your edit.

That's lovely, still doesn't show us what it looks like, though, does it? What you might call carbon fibre, or how carbon fibre looks like on gaming graphics, might be entirely different to what actual carbon fibre looks like.

Something like this...:

...?

If you use the Fill tool or Paintbrush tool, you will notice in the upper toolbar there is a dropdown box entitled "Fill". I believe you will be able to find the pattern underneath, in which the outline and the fill of the pattern is determined by your Primary and Secondary color. Just a suggestion.

yeah something like that only i like it darker if u know what i mean.

:oops: i thought "Carbon fibre" would be quite obvious...

Ok if there isn't a tut guess il have to work until i get the right thing

Thx anyway :)

I whipped this up, and didn't know if it was close to what you were looking for

No, not a PM. Just put it on here, so everyone can see. :-)

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.

if you insist hehe

definitely not tut worthy

You'll need the Weave plugin in the Ed Harvey Pack found Here

Create a new image :FileNew:

Set your primary color to dark gray (I used Hex: 404040)

Set secondary color to black.

Select a Linear (Reflected) gradient :LinearReflectedGradient:

Position your pointer in the center of your image and while holding 'shift' perform your gradient all the way to the top of the image (or beyond if you want the gray to extend further)

Press Ctrl-D to deselect

Then duplicate the layer :DuplicateLayer:

On the top layer, do a Weave (effects > render > weave)

with the following settings:

Angle: 0.0

Size: 10 Edited from size of 4 originally, as the Weave plugin from Ed Harvey Effects dated 20071221 allows only a minimum weave of 10

On the bottom layer, do another weave (effects > render > weave)

with the following settings:

Angle: 90.0

Size: 10 Edited from size of 4 originally, as the Weave plugin from Ed Harvey Effects dated 20071221 allows only a minimum weave of 10

On top layer, set layer blending mode to Difference (press F4 to access layer properties and set blending mode to Difference)

Merge the top layer down :MergeDown:

Then do a Glow (effects > photo > glow) :Glow:

I used the following settings:

Radius: 10

Brightness: 30

Contrast: 20

That's all I did to mine...if you come up with something you like better, I'd be interested in seeing it.

:shock: i knew weave was the answer but i didn't thought about blending 2 layers together :lol:

My pic will come soon

Edit: one problem, i cant select size 4. The smallest size is 10

By the way Salu your "carbon fibre" is different yet nice, how did u make it ?

That's really funky...I know I selected size 4 when I did the weave effects. But now it dawned on me that I was using the old version of the "Ed Harvey Effects".

Now that I've updated to the new version of Ed's effects, I can only select a minimum of 10 as well. You can combat this by creating a very large image and doing the tut, then resizing at the end I presume.

Thank you. :-) It's a good thing to be able to point newbies too if they ask again.

And you did a great job. :-) Someday, I'd like to see this as part of a tutorial of several different textures. Good work.

Thanks David.

I've updated the tutorial portion accordingly to reflect the change.
