I've tried everything, avi video, quicktime video , and even an image sequence. I've followed many tips on how to fix this, but it always just shows up a solid color (though the image sequence did show up in the mat settings window. I'm tearing my hair out trying to figure this out as I have project that needs to be done by tomorrow. Any help would be appreciated

imo it adds too many anchor points. you really should only be doing 1 anchor point for every curve, then use its handles to smooth it out.

The first one is a gradient background with some transparent overlays, also with a slight gradient, slight shadow underneath.

The second one is a black background, the foreground image is probably a brush of some sort, with some gradient in the opacity

Third one is just a pattern of transparant bars on top of eachother in a funky manner

If you want to learn this, i'd suggest digging into gradients and transparancy, in photoshop as well as illustrator. The internet is full of sources that explain...

it's under the drop shadow tool. check the presets in the upper left.

>>281445
hey, thanks for the quick answer.
i played around a bit with the drop shadow tool and i guess with presets you mean the small to large glow ones right? I was only able to apply gaussian blur to smooth out the edges of the shadows. i am unable to replicate the effect on the right, which is the same square just as a bitmap with gaussian blur applied
>>
>>281447
I guess breaking the shadow groups apart and only taking the shadow gives similar results. That seems a bit unintuitive and clumsy tho. Is there really no other way to replicate this effect? I know it is super easy to do in affinity designer/illustrator. just apply gaussian blur to the vector object as an effect. nothing as easy in corel draw?

This. Also if you're making an intro, don't. Just put an overlay of your logo at the beginning of the actual video and have it fade out after a couple seconds. Intros are obnoxious and don't instantly make you look professional (especially if you use an online service to make one like this kid did).

This is a picture of the supposed finished project I am wating a tutorial for. I have come to a point in the tutorial where I am supposed to add a new mat to a plane with a gradient and it's supposed to be flat (as opposed to uvw maping) But no matter what I try, i can't seem to get the mat to apply.

I click and drag it onto the plane and it changes color slightly, but otherwise appears not to be applied as it looks nothing like the tutorial....

Most of the designers I work with don't use a tablet, so no, you don't need one. It really only comes in handy if you're an illustrator or something along those lines.

I prefer to use one over a mouse personally, it's just easier for me because I've become so accustomed to it (and I use it for digital painting, etc), plus I find I don't get any RSI issues using it. You get used to them after using them for a few hours so it's not like they're difficult to figure out.

i think some general rules in logos are don't mix the text with the actual logo, start the design with only black and white and don't use gradients (unless you have experience with them). also did you made the type from scratch? maybe it could look good if it was more like those hand-made elaborate calligraphy logos but still needs a lot of work.

I have a question about college and how much importance there is to it.

I have an associates degree in graphic design, started university to get my bachelors but i have at least two semester's worth of just liberal arts bull shit before i get to the useful stuff and even then the curriculum doesn't seem as useful except to at the end have a bachelors degree. Over the summer i became very depressed and long story short i decided to take a break from college and managed to get an entry level position as a graphic designer/production specialist.

No-one has ever asked for my degree. That being said, if your young, take the opportunity while you can.

Dont worry about the content of the course. Get a digital tutors account and just do tutorials every fucking day. Become a master of the software. Become friends with all the tutors. Give everything 110%.

That's what I did. I got a job straight from uni and 1 year later I went back and got my assistant from the same course.

Dats my 2 cents

Seconding this, portfolio and experience is all employers care about.

If you would actually enjoy finishing your studies and can afford to do so then id say go for it, just for fun, but the actual piece of paper you get at the end is not useful.

you are only a good designer if you can forge the content of proof of education on a piece of paper printed out on the stock that includes your name and your major on it.

i did that and got away with it.

who the hell even contacts universities for grad verification anymore? doesn't fuckin' matter in the long run. show good work and get experience.

college education is bullshit busywork that keeps kids safe from the real world. employers looking to hire designers are not going to ask for your GPA for this very reason.

good hunting.

Its pretty cool for the first try! You need to try to get some more shapes contrast and get all the details to the minimum

not bad at all for a beginner, there's definitely room for improvement, but you're on the right path

You've got a good eye for color. Areas to improve: Typography, form, and shading, in that order. "Flat" is a style, and you'll get better faster if you practice foundational techniques before experimenting with style.

How do I recreate this logo in Illustrator? I tried to add an outline and it looked alright but i need it to be transparent. Is there any way to expand the letter and use pathfinder somehow? I tried to google a solution but i couldn't find anything relevant...

Why don't you just outline the entire thing with the pen tool?

this. In GIMP you can create a path with splines and such, and then create a selection from that path. Do something like that, invert the selection, and press delete.

In the Appearance panel (under Window>Appearance) you should be able to be able to change the opacity of both the path and the fill of the object.
