Now later on we will also going to be talking about special effects and we are going to create the promised sweet vortex of light. So while we are talking about it let me just give a world wind tour, a little demo of what we are going to be doing when we get there.
So I am going to create a new blank layer and I am going to reset my foreground and background colors. I am going to add some cloud automatically and watch how easy this is. Just hit Render, Clouds. Boom! There are some clouds. I am going to add some noise to this to give some texture here. Maybe a little bit more than that. Let's make this Monochromatic, add little bit more, very cool.
And I am going to wrap this around. Let me Distort this a little bit. Very cool and let's zoom out here and make this a little bit bigger. Very nice and I am going to go to Blur>Radial Blur, Zoom blur give that just a second and look at that. Let's get in some more. Very cool. We could go in and colorize this image. Increase the Hue. I love blue. For some reason a blue vortex of light really does something to me a lot more than say a green or red vortex of light.
So I am going to stick with the old trusty blue vortex, very nice. Let's change the lighting of this a little bit. Let's make this a little bit more intense. A little bit more intense in the dark areas as well. See, that's the vortex of light. Oh yeah, oh yeah!
See I have seen a lot of vortexes of light in my day, but this one really takes the cake. At each one of those steps that I have used from adding noise to doing to polar cordinance thing. What the heck was that? I will tell you. All these things we are going to cover in detail. By the time this training series is over this will be a piece of cake. It will be no big deal to create something this spectacularly awesome.
