So, I'm kind of new to C4D but amd pretty familiar with the basics. The problem I'm having is that no matter what I've tried I can't seem to get a video onto a mat into C4D
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
Sorry this is such an amateur question, but how do I achieve a smoother look, like the ones on the right? Does it just take practice to make the lines smoother? I mean, look at the smooth curves on the fucking octopus.
>>281528 Read good literature Branch out to unfamiliar territory eg. architecture, modern dance, history Set up a restricting set of rules for yourself and push those boundaries to the max Piece together the narrative of what design has been over the years and where it's headed
hey guys, hopefully this isnt annoying and im not being some fucking idiot. but I just started messing around with graphic design and I wanted to know how I can do these three effects, just want to know how so I can recreate them for practice. Thanks.
>>281455 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... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>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?
Hello /gd/, I have been graphics designing for 7+ years and I am an extremely professional designer. I have constructed this amazing and extremely creative logo, and I'd love to hear your opinions on it. I believe that it is minimalistic, simple, and appealing. I'd love to hear your opinions on it though, I'm sure you will like it!
Can someone please explain how are these intro's made? I know how to use after effects but cant seem to find a way to make these. What software is generally used to create such intros? Link below:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SE-YBZy7ntU
>>281397 >>281411 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).
I am relatively new to Cinema 4D, but I have been looking into it's features and have decided to give it a go.
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.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
sounds like useless critique, something only a designer could point out :) no one is going to notice these details in the real world and it doesn't affect functionality in any way, it's not that it's unreadable.
that said, the only thing I don't like is the line break between "Silence" and "Yourself"
>>281163 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.
>>281147 Copy and paste the main layer twice, put the two new layers on top of the original image, colorize them to the colors you want, turn the opacity to anywhere from 50%-80% and then move them up and down or left and right in opposite directions.
>>281147 Duplicate the main layer twice then double click on each layer that you just duplicated to open the layer style panel and disable the RGB checkboxes.. leave the top layer with "R" and the other with "G" (you have move the layer positions to see the effect)
OP, you (or someone impersonating you, or is it the other way around...) posted this a few months ago. what took so long to finish this poster (if you don't mind the personal question, that is)?
the photographs are smashed together! why?
i wouldn't put pics of the building itself, just focus on the interior. the middle pic stands out, but the contrast with the lights really burns my eyes. any chance you can retake the pics of the interior? different angles? possibly the weapons at your disposal (i want to see the weapons...)?

>>280861 Looks clean, uncluttered, it's hip (right now), easy to animate in after effects and turn into a .gif and you can produce great amounts of it in very little time and zero effort, which is what most big companies want nowadays.
It will fade away as any other trend soon enough, have patience.
Could somebody explain to me, how one can achieve this effect? I tried to work my way around with contrast but the outcome is almost everytime not even near the example. Is there something im missing? Can it only be done with pics with a big contrast? Thank you.
>>280806 Alright, so what you want to do is threshold, colorize, invert, then colorize again. That should get you this effect. I'm using GIMP, but anything it can do, Photoshop can do better (supposedly).
>>280797 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.
My intuos 3 works wonders but I've always dreamed of having one where I can actually see what it's being drawn beneath the pen. That 13hd looks lovely.
>are there any good alternatives to Wacom Not that I know of. Think Wacom is pretty much universaly accepted as the best. I once owed a Genius and it was shit. Had my intuos3 for about 5 years and never gave me a headache.
Been using the cheapest intuos (CTL480) for over a year now. And I am slowly looking into an upgrade. Either go with a wacom panel, or look into getting something like Surface Book or Vaio Canvas Z. Though the latter is not easily found here in EU. Drawing / sketching is what I do almost daily, and it is not fun working on this small tablet.
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.
Would it... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>280609 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.
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...
