We will do a small animation to illustrate how to use noise as a glitter-like effect. Use this skill to experiment and make your own graphics!
Open a new image 300x200, white background
On another layer write the name you want to use.in whatever color, font or pattern you choose.
Make a new layer on top and flood fill with the same color or patter you used for the name.
Using your selection tool, drag a rectangle over like this:
Hit delete. Selections-select none
Hide the bottom white layer, by clicking the little eyeglasses on the layers palette. Should be the layer at the bottom. Right click on one of the 2 other layer and choose merge-merge visible.
Effects-3d effects-inner bevel with these settings:
Here is how it should look now,(well sorta if you are using your own style):
Effects-noise then use these settings, we will make 3 frames, each time you make another frame increase the percentage 20 more.
Save as Frame 1
undo, then use the noise again, this time at 64% Save as Frame 2
undo, noise at 84% Save as frame 3
Take to animation shop at 5 fps and see whatcha got!!!
Experiment with all types of things and I would love to see your favorites posted in the members graphic album!! Stay Sweet,....... Karen
