3D Design Effects - Star Trek Beyond
Learn How Photoshop 3D Can Achieve Hollywood Style Effects in Your Own Designs
This week's project is inspired by one of the posters for the new Star Trek Beyond movie. It depicts the ship in the background with a cool warp trail flowing from the foreground. This inspired me to see if this effect could be done in Photoshop especially using 3D and it yielded an interesting result. Starting with a couple simple iPhone images you will see how you can use Photoshop 3D in yet another creative way to add spectacular design effects similar to the effect on the poster but repeatable on other ways. See how reveres engineering can show you the way to effects you perhaps never thought possible. Not to mention, its just plain cool looking! Come join as we go even deeper into the design world of Photoshop 3D.
What you will learn:
• Blend iPhone images to create new backgrounds
• Use PixelSquid Objects in a Composite
• Creative 3D effects you can use
• 3D Text & Atmospheric Effects
• and much more!
