Night Scene Tutorial

Hello again! This is my third tutorial and I hope you all don't get bored with me. Anyway, this time we will learning about how to create a night background scene with stars and moon on it. The step of making the stars here is something that I've referenced from Greg Martin's amazing star field tutorial that I've simplify and modified it to fit the needs. I'd actually want to repeat all of those words I've said in my previous tutorial, but I think it's pointless to do so now... So let's just get started.

After finishing this tutorial, you should be able to create something like this :


The application needed now is only Adobe Photoshop, note that there will be some issues if you don't use the CS3 version, but, don't worry, I'll point it all and explain the workaround in older version of Adobe Photoshop.

As usual, the before-first step is to open Photoshop and any other necessary applications...
Spoiler for Tutorial:
And we're done! Congratulations! Well, it's not exactly match my example but I hope you now get the picture on how draw a night scene by using Adobe Photoshop. Now you can add more effects such as text and borders to spice up your sigs. Here, I'm using an outer glow layer style to the render to hide the white artifacts stated on step 3 note and added some text and my "trademark" fading white border.

Well, that's end my third tutorial here. Thanks for your attention and as usual, if you have any questions or comments, feel free to send a private messages to me or post it on my thread. See you next time on my next tutorial! ...maybe...

There seems to be a problem with my Adobe Imageready. (Or at least, that's what I'm assuming)
I was going to make an animated avatar and, as usual, I used Virtual dub to get the frames. But when I opened it in Imageready, all the frames/layers turned up white. Any help please?

Here's a screen shot

The file that you opened is called "eat.avi". Did you open an avi file instead of a sequence of images?

Nope, I got the frames, then did File->Save as .avi. Just like I always do.

Hmmm, what I usually do in virtual dub is to go File -> Save Image Sequence. Maybe you can try that and see if it works.

I don't have that save option. Is there a newer version of Vdub out then? I have version 1.7.2

It's strange that it just happened today; it was working fine yesterday.

Make sure compression is on "uncompressed RGB/YCBcr".

You can change that at Video>Compression (Ctrl+P)

If that wasn't it, than i'm clueless as to why it's happening

Well, I think you should try adjusting the exposure of the stars layer a little bit so that it'll emphasize the stars even more. But nice job on the moon!

Another one. If you need the psd, I'll post that up too.
Tut/signature are now owned by me.

(oh and the box shaped things are actually from a font)

Glad someone made use of the tutorial

It's quite good for a first one. There are still some white spots though, but it's more than usable for a signature.

Goodluck with the other one
