This attempt GIF dynamic poster for online transmission, selected last year more popular neon effect to create. From the end of the project has been quite a long time, the details of the process is difficult to be again specific display, the sharing of the tutorial for the overall realization of ideas.
First, creative ideas and material collection.
First of all, since want to do neon, it is necessary to analyze the composition of neon lights and color characteristics. In my mind is the effect of flashing neon lights like neon signs in Hong Kong's streets or the neon signs of bars. The following figure.
After the collection of pictures, a piece of paper analysis, summed up the following characteristics of neon lights.
1, the line body structure-whether it is the font, contour or auxiliary graphics, are used to shape the line.
2, with the geometry-Fanluan line is irregular form, need to have a simple geometric contour constraints to form a contrast, will be the whole.
3, red, yellow, blue, green four colors-a wide range of colors, but seriously look at the fact that most of the neon lights only use these four kinds of high saturation color is enough.
Second, the AI composition and basic elements of production.
Third, the production of PS effect.
