Thread: scanlines effect

  1. #1

    resolved

    how do people do that cool scanlines effect - you know where an image looks like its being shown through a TV (kinda).

    I assume its a photoshop plug-in or something....where can I get it?

    cheers

    Alright, it is a photoshop thing, though not a plugin. Follow the bouncing ball:

    in photoshop:

    create a 500x500 image

    get into the channels layer and break yoself off a new channel

    create a 3pt line, horizontal across the page

    select the whole ine, plus about 2 extra pixels below it

    once selected, go into the top menus and choose "define pattern"

    open a new channel, select the whole damn thing, and then do a fill - select "pattern" and fill it

    load that channel as a layer

    fill it with whatever

    the gaussian blur it about 2 pixels

    thar ya go

    if that doesn't work, there's a fullsome tutorial on phong.com

    cheers

    Hey, I use this method, I think it makes a little more sense than the above description. Only thing is, the link was dead, and I have notified them of this, so I think it should get corrected. I actually have the turotial saved on my comp. at work, and I will see if that is working in the morning.

    Holy cow, what happened to phong? I tried to access it a few times and it says I don't have permission to view the site...I used to visit it all the time. Maybe it's just not working for me:

    There are more tutorials on this sort of thing here:

    I heard Phong is down for revisions - should be back up soon - strange that he didn't even put a marker in to indicate that it was down.

    Okay, well, the place I got that tutorial to do the scanlines was at techdevelopers.com and the link is still not there for the scanlines, and funny thing is, I did not know it is this phong you are speaking of, but it is. Well, I may have the tutorial saved at work, I;ll have to see.

    There is a much simpler process, just duplicate the effected layer.
    Apply the filter "Halftone Pattern" (path is -filter/sketch/halftone pattern) in this dialog box change the pattern type to line (this gives you the effect). Now change the layer mode to Overlay, then pat your self on the back. Keep in mind the halftone pattern uses white and the foreground color, so before you take time to do the work make sure you have an asthetic foreground color selected.

    nice ideas, if you want to cheat do a search on the net for the " xenofx" photoshop plugin, it has that effect and quite a few more nice ones..
