First attempt to make something Tronlike...

on Wednesday, September, 01, 2004 5:55 PM
Hi there,

Like the topic said, this are the first attempt to make the famous Tron-Glow effect


I made this in a few minutes with a programm called Chromonator and I think the results are not THAT bad ^^

In a few days I will (at least I hope so) try something with a little more movement.

Edit: Yes!!! I made a Link!!

Edit 2.0:
Almost forgotten
Here you can see the tutorial I used for this pic. (They even mention Tron-Sector )

Ok after I posted the pictures I asked myself "Why don`t you use the videomaterial from tron-sector".
Well I took the pre-pruduction clip and played a little around
It doesn`t look really good, but good enough for me ^^.
At least I know how to do it. And I guess if I shoot my footage in front of a greenscreen I can edit it easier than this clip.

Edit: Sorry guys I deleted the file on the server.. Also my HD crashed .. so it will be lost forever

Very nice work, Katsuro! That was close match to the original glow effect. Please post more trials if you have a chance.where to buy abortion pill abortion types buy abortion pill online

Thx for the kind comments
I`ll do some greenscreen shoots soon with a (very very bad) costume to try out the possibilities.

In Fact it is quite simple.
1.) Take a picture or a movie (Black&White for best results.. like the original Tron footage)
2.) Use some Programm to make the black lines on the costume transparent
3.) place the color of your choice (red/blue/green for good results) "behind" the Picture/video
4.) Render it (you now got a picture with clorored lines, but no glow) and use a programm like AE or Chromonator (I did this with Chromonator) to key out the green/red/blue
5.) Invert the keying, so that the only things you see are the lines in the color of your choice
6.) blur those lines a little bit and place it ofer the picture/video
7.) Post it to show results to others

Its not a very detailed tutorial, but thats the way it was done. Also I hope you understand what I was writing, because german school english is the best I can do to make myself understood ^^°
Like I said above, the fxhome guy (Tarn) did a very good tutorial which also works for movies.abortion pills online abortion pill online purchase cytotec abortion

As it turns out, that is the same method that I used to create the glow effects for one of my video tests! We use different software, but the compositing technique is identical. Again, great job, and hopefully others will take up computer-based backlight compositing.where to buy abortion pill ordering abortion pills to be shipped to house buy abortion pill online

I`m back
And I did something new. It`s an intro for the movie I want to do. The intro itself is a ripoff from the Tron 2.0 intro

Hope you like it:

Nicely done introduction. Does this have anything to do with Terry Gilliam film “Time Bandits” from 1981?

Nope
But it´s nice to see someone does know this movie.

It`s about a military prototype (I call it TimeThingy, because I´ve got no good name right now for it) and e thief who is trying to steal it.
I realised about one or two hours after I made the title time bandit, that there is allready a movie with almost the same name. Maybe I´ll change the name...

Not only the Tron stuff... It´s an incredible feeling to create an effect (or "fake" an effect) which looks similar to the effects used in famous movies.

Nice work Katsuro.

What do you normally edit your videos in. (i'm also interested in what you used for the 3D in the intro test.)

For the troneffects with the "real" footage I used Chromonator (www.fxhome.com) .
For the intro I used Cinema 4D R8 and a LOT of time.
I used the Explosion FX a lot. The light in the background are actualy spheres with a glowing texture.

Sooo whats new? Right now I´m in the mood to do something with lightcycles

These are my "doodles" (god I love that word ) :
