Animated Glitter Tutorial

 

I use this technique a lot , so I thought I would

write this little mini-tut about it.

 

You need PSP and Animation Shop

DSB Flux-Bright Noise

Open both PSP and Animation Shop

For this example we will glitter my name like so:

 

 

New Image-600x250-White Background

Type out your name in font and color of choice

Rasterize type and add a drop shadow

Duplicate name layer twice for a total of three layers

On the bottom name layer-DSB Flux-Bright Noise

For this I used Mix checked -45%

You can choose whatever percentage you like

and can try the darker or lighter button depending on color used

Play with it a little to get what you want

Just make sure you use the same settings on all three name layers

Then Bright Noise again on the middle and top layers hitting the mix button each time

(or whatever button you used the first time)

Now to animate it

Hide your top two name layers - Edit -Copy Merged

Now go over to Animation shop edit- paste as new animation

Back in PSP- Hide the bottom and top name layers and unhide the middle one

Edit-copy merged - In Animation shop edit- paste after current frame

Back in PSP- Hide the bottom and middle name layers and unhide the top one

Edit-copy merged - In Animation shop edit- paste after current frame

View animation- If you like it, save as a gif and you're done!
