Thread: Rust Effect

  1. #1

    Rust Effect

    I've got a few dials in movieclips in my latest flash project and I want them to look old and rusty. I've not got a scooby how to do this, could anyone come up with something? Basically the dials are just circles that spin round based on the time.

    Do you have an image of the kind of dial you are trying to recreate? What does everything else in your layout look like?

    Nah, that's kinda the problem.

    Here's what I have so far, I just did basic circles, but I want to give it a aged, used type look. Kinda like in the same sense as films like StarWars or Matrix. Not futuristic, but used, old type look.

    TimeSince

    Each dial represents different denominations of years, days, hours, minutes and seconds.

    Any ideas?

    rust is actually really easy to obtain....

    You are going to use PS right ?

    Is a good place to start. Keep in mind that all effects can be altered to fit your taste..

    Nice one Rush,

    Thanks a lot. Did you do that in PhotoShop then?

    If you are famous for tutorials in that sort of thing I would be interested but that is braw. Ta.

    I'll have a wee look at the link N_R_D posted.

    No problem. And yeah, it was Photoshop.

    That's why I didn't do the tutorial. No offense, but based on the wording of your post and the example dials you posted, I assumed you either didn't have Photoshop or didn't have the desire to learn much about it. I don't want to put hours of work into something that will be given only a passing glance once complete. Also, since tutorials on how to make rust abound on the net I figured there wasn't much need for yet another one.

    And like I said, I really was just in the mood to make some rusty dials.

    I have got Photoshop and I probably will look through that tutorial, I would like to get better at using it as I just really using it for doctoring/tidying up photos and stitching them together (Skatepark Galleries ).

    I just don't really know that much about creating original images or effects using Photoshop, hence the question.

    Thanks again, really appreciate it. I'll post the finished product when I'm done. Ta.

    Thanks, el. Actually I've been meaning to get back to this, perhaps this will be the incentive I needed to get it done.

    It's true that I've been meaning to do this. I even left the notification of the last post in this thread as a reminder to myself in my inbox. The fact is, I was going back through this thread at one point and I decided to see who was doing the asking for the tut. (yeah, sometimes I need to determine whether or not it's going to be worth my time) It turns out that N_R_D is really quite helpful in other forums that I don't frequent that often. So while I wasn't personally familiar with him, I do like to do my part to reward positive participation in the forums and I will feel more compelled to help these types of people than I would someone with only a few posts, for instance. Just to name a select few, Natsia, Black_phoenix and lefteyewilly are excellent examples of people who are always quick to assist with advice or wit. Thanks for being here, guys! And everyone else who takes the time to answer questions instead of just asking them.

    Don't get me wrong, I do what I can to help out anyone who needs it, but I'll go the extra mile for those who tend to hang out and give back a little bit instead of just taking all the time. So N_R_D...sorry it's taken me so long, bud. I'll try to get something worked up for you guys. I appreciate having you around.
    mrush

    Neily74 ~

    Here is something that I think will help you a lot more than a tutorial about how to make rust.
