The City Lights pack applies the new interiormap effect to 3D models of skyscrapers:
www.outerspace-software.com...

However effects can be applied to all layer types. Here's how to apply the effect to a text layer:
1) Choose FILE > NEW SHOW
2) Choose MEDIA > CHANGE EFFECT...
3) Select the Special\Interiormap effect
4) Select an interiormap texture in the 1st texture slot. This example uses the texture from www.artstation.com...
5) Click OK
6) Set the FX INTERIORS IN TEXTURE property. When using the texture in this example, set it to (4, 4)

That's it!

To finetune the result:
-play around with the FX ROOM SIZE property. This example uses a value of 0.1
-add a border to the text: choose LAYER > ATTACH LAYER > ATTACH BORDER TO ACTIVE LAYER... and select the BevelWhite preset
-set the FX LIGHTING FACTOR property to (0, 0.5, 0)
-set the FX COLOUR EXTERIOR property to (255, 255, 255)
-add a mirror: choose LAYER > ADD LAYER > ADD MIRROR LAYER
-...

Have fun experimenting!

And this is how the interiormap effect looks like applied to a picture layer using the DONUT style (1st dropdown below the textbox)

Great again!! Maybe in the future we will all live in donuts. i tried on some 3D sketch, would it be possible in future to have the possibility to rotate texture (90°). thank you.

Have you already tried rotating the interiormap texture in your paint app?

Nice textures of corridors, Lostboyz

Did you make them or find them? Either way great example and great execution.

komies, 2 years ago


Thank you komies , the passageways were not made by me.

Michiel, a i supected rotate in paint app doesn't work. BT doesn't know that pic have been rotated so it considers left col of the matrix as front what is wrong now. (NB: i am speaking abut the mode Fx interiors in texture with cursor 2 set to 0)

LB, Scifi cells is a very good idea.

vincent, 2 years ago


Great. I also used the text later and tried a rotated interiormap but didn't get it working. Nice interiormap Michiel and LB!

I made Gif animator .

LostBoyz, 2 years ago


Hi LB, is the shadow created in the GIF ?

vincent, 2 years ago


Hi vincent !I made shadow blufftitler export alpha c. and ulead gif import video and converted gif file.

LostBoyz, 2 years ago


Ghost room :)

Room size : 1
FX Interiors pattem: 0,0,3
FX room depth, wall dept.. : 1,01,0.7172

LostBoyz, 2 years ago


Great idea to use a video as the interiormap!

3 remarks:
-the thin black line crossing the ghost is caused by transparent pixels at the bottom and right side of the interiormap texture.
-instead of animated GIF you can use any other video format. AVI supports an 8 bits alpha channel and does not require 3rd party codecs.
-a colourmap layer can also be used to animate the interiormap

michiel, 2 years ago


That's what I thought, the shadow is part of the gif, I had tried to generate the shadow with the light layer in interior map and I could not. Thanks LB.

vincent, 2 years ago


Wow, the interiormap effect is so powerful.
All your tests looks fantastic.
