3D Rotating Earth

Posted on November 21, 2011 @ 08:14 AM by ThePhantom

Update: Tutorial posted.
On 2009 I posted a video on my YouTube personal channel about three After Effects clips I made; one of those clips was a seamless loop-able 3D Rotating Earth background movie. Over the last two years I've been getting a lot of request to do a tutorial on how to do this effect. I've done the tutorial on how to do this rotating earth; and I'll be uploading it in the next couple of days. This video on top shows the preview of the end result. I hope you guys like it.

Converting from bitmap to vector

Posted on November 07, 2011 @ 06:53 AM by ThePhantom

Nowadays, we see graphic design everywhere; from business cards to big billboards. But, what is behind all these? Imagine you see a billboard with pixelated images, wow, that'll be awful. So, how do this media companies take those images and make them so large if when I zoom in to a picture all I see is little squares? Well these little squares are called pixels; and when you see that it is said that your image is pixelated. The solution to this is to have a vector image that will keep it's quality even if it is stretched. In this tutorial you will learn how to convert a bitmap image into a vector image. You will learn how to do this using Inkscape, an open-source vector graphic editing software. You can watch the tutorial by clicking here.
