My version of Warner Bros' logo animation.

The shiny, cartoony gold has been created by using a very blurred picture as a reflectionmap.

Looks great and by disecting the show and looking at the actual eps files the mysteries of the EPS effects are starting to become clear.

My problem with eps' is that when I save my file in Photoshop it produces a huge 5-7mb file. Do you know what settings I should be using to allow Bluff to import?

Thanks Dave

Works a treat. I didn't realise I could save as jpg in photoshop and then convert.

Thanks for this show it's great

As you noticed, this is an EPS file. Easiest way is to create a new EPS file with PoTrace or with this utility:

I love this! I have several logos that I have created for clients. How do I get them to look 3D like this one?

Thank you!

Are you aware that you can save all the media files of all the gallery shows to your harddisk? You can do that by choosing the menu item SETTINGS / TOOL WINDOW followed by FILE / SAVE SHOW + ALL MEDIA FILES.

This way you can examine the show and find out how it's done. If you have a specific question I'd be happy to answer it.

Hi All,

I am extremely new to BT, so please accomodate a newbie!
I have downloaded the show files for this Warner Brothers example and have been examining it to try to determine how it has been put together. I have been able to change the text in the outer ring but was looking to see how to change the 'BT' in the centre of the logo (layer 09). I suspect that this is part of an 'EPS' file? does that mean I must edit that file outside of BT? I don't have access to Illustrator but I do have Photoshop CS5 and also Serif Drawplus which will import an eps file.

Thanks you for your help

I always use Potrace to create EPS files:

Maybe you like Vincent's utility to create EPS files:

Thanks for those replies. My brother is a Graphic Designer and has 'changed' the two central letters for me. However, when I try to use the replacement eps file (that he created), I get an error message stating 'BluffTitler can't handle' and a message about help with eps files. the only thing that I can see is that the new file that my brother changed is 250kb. Is that causing a problem? I renamed it the same as the original - Warnerbros_logo. Any ideas?

Thanks

Mark, I'd be happy to fix your EPS file if you allow me to post it in this gallery as part of a new Warner Bros spoof.

You can e-mail it to info@outerspace-software.com.

Michiel, thanks. I fixed it myself. I'm not entirely sure how! I created a bmp file then used Potrace (as recommended by you) to create the eps file and it worked!
I'll send you the BT files when i have finished for the gallery if suitable.

Bald,
My tool uses Potrace.
Steps:
1) load pic
2) preview in BT to see if BT can handle it (adjust parameters if not)
3) save as eps if ok

Thanks Vincent,

I have your utility. I registered it with you but I still have the 'D'. I thought that would be removed when I registered?

Mark

Bald, 'D' must be removed when registred. Try to launch program as administrator and re-enter activation code.

vincent, 6 years ago


Vincent,

I think I have fixed it. I opened program as administrator and it worked OK. I don't see the 'D' now.

Thanks
