« on: March 10, 2007, 04:07:44 AM »
Greetings visual effects Padawans
In my always continued selfless efforts to help as many people as I can in life.
I have put up a series of Star wars visual effects tutorials
the first 3 are for Photoshop images
and the last is full blown lightsaber video effects (rotoscoping) in Adobe after effects
I'm sure everyone that has the desire to learn Star wars visual effects will love this series of tutorials.
So here is the roster of tutorials I have uploaded ..

The first is Making lightsabers in photoshop .
It will give you a uber cool blade outer glow.

Well I stickied it over a month ago and only you and 2 other people commented about it.
Thats why I had said that,I had my old tutorials stickied before I made this thread and almost no one checked those..
Its cool though,im sure they will help someone.

LOL
Yeah you seen um the day I made um at the archives..
That`s what puzles me,at the Jediarchives a gang of people commented on the tutorials when they came up.
I guess we are just a little more graphics oriented over there.

I got it to work 1 time, but now I keep getting Neutral color Gray. Any idea what Im doing wrong?

Edit: Ive got a triple shot of problems tonight. 1) a case of the DEE,Dee,dee's  2) a case of not being able to follow instructions/CRS.  and insomnia     I tried to overlay rather than screen.

Want to echo everyone else's appreciation.  Thank you for passing on your knowledge so the rest of us don't have to struggle quiet so hard at figuring it all out.
