>Chromatic aberration in Pr
The easiest way would be to use a plug-in such as twitch. However, that's kind of cheating since that Felix doesn't has it's color channels shifted by position but by time.
Easiest way I can think of doing it properly is the following
>Throw footage on new sequence
>duplicate it, put it on a 2nd layer and shift it one frame forward. Apply Color Balance effect set red channel to 200 and blue and green to 0. Change blending mode to additive
>duplicate it, put it on a 3rd layer, shift it a frame forward and change the visible color channel
>do it once again
>put original footage on top of all layers
you don't have to use RGB for the channel separation, OP's pic has cyan for example
>picrelated would be a much better example if it didn't move so damn fast but it's the only gif without a bg I have saved and I'm too lazy to look for a more appropriate one

Favourite techniques to add realistic noise to digital art to make it look like it was scanned from a print?

Obviously I can pick out elements to consider from examples like pic related (blue cast, print lines, reduced range, etc.) but just wondering if anyone has a go-to technique.
>>
>>361073
post an example, it usually goes like this:
> draw the sketch > take a photo/scan it > import pic into Photoshop (canvas: 2875x3900px) > "ink" or redraw the line-art (the photo locked in the background) > import into Illustrator > auto-trace > clean > colorize

I want to do web in my native country and there's like 2-3 "agencies" that completely dominate with shit work just because they have big name connections to rich people and gov (founders of each agency aren't even designers and the people they hire is a joke).

How and what can I do to stand out and be a better alternative when I have 0 connections there and big name clients don't give a shit about quality?

Second question, what should I do if they try to bully me out of the field if they were to hear my existence?

Try asking them if they outsource work. Steal their clients, if you can. That's probably how they did it. Agency work is dog eat dog.

I want print a 90x150cm flag.
What canvas size do I should use to get a perfect print?(I'm using Inkscape)

This is the best that I can get:

4252x2552=90,03x150,00cm
4252x2551=89,00x150,00cm

Also:
Any idea how many DPI (dots per inch) should have my Inkscape file?
>>
>>362346
>canvas size
90x150 cm
>dpi
300

it will be a pretty heavy file, if it's too much for your potato, you can lower dpi to 150 and it will still look fine
>>
>>362352
What will happend if use 96.00 dpi?

If I change the dpi the size of my design changes.
>>
>>362360
dpi means dots per inch, literally how much detail is printed per inch
300 dpi is pretty much the standard for high res prints, going with 150 gives pretty good results, I wouldn't go lower than that if it's meant to be seen up close, if you are planning on hanging the flag high (so no one stands really close to see the printing quality isn't dandy) you can get away with lower a dpi but it's not optimal.

>If I change the dpi the size of my design changes
indeed
>>
>>362361
Retarded question:
I'm using a few cm to px converter web pages to know the exact canvas size:

Why I keep getting different numbers in the thousandths?:

5669x3401= 5669.291339x3401.574803 (90x150cm )
http://www.endmemo.com/sconvert/centimeterpixel.php

5669x3401= 5669.2913386x3401.5748031 (90x150cm )
https://www.unitconverters.net/typography/centimeter-to-pixel-x.html

And when I used this converter web page https://www.blitzresults.com/en/pixel/ I got this totally different number:

4251x2551=89,99x150,00 (90x150cm )

Wich is the correct canvas size in px for 90x150cm?
Am I retarded?

>>If I change the dpi the size of my design changes
indeed

I was able to import my design with this exact size 4251x2551 but in png format.
Will I have a good print in this format?
It really necessary be SVG format?

The individual shapes should only have one colour each. I get what you're going for with the wings but there's not enough contrast between white and yellow to make it work.

That calculator you are using makes no sense, just create your canvas in cm and choose your dpi, you don't need to worry about pixels

>when compared gif's are usually twice the size of mp4's but they look much better
you need to find the bitrate sweetspot for mp4s to balance size-quality

Any idea how can I export this but on a SVG file?
I'm using Inkscape.
>>
>>362619
I'm just realizing we are talking about inkscape not gimp (I haven't ever used either though)
what you have here is a conceptual problem, SVG is literally Scalable Vector Graphic, therefore, you don't care about it's size/resolution, only thing that matters is that you get the ratio right (15:9 in this case) since you can just scale it afterwards without losing quality.
making the canvas bigger will only increase the file size

>export as png
what you are doing here is rasterizing the image, which means that you lose all vector information, you don't want to do that.
again, I've never used inkscape but there should be an option to save the file as .eps / .svg or some other vectorial format (sure that's a google search away)
however, this is assuming you actually drew that on inkscape and that the paths are there, if you just pasted some image it will already be rasterized and you will need to trace it.
inkscape should have some sort of auto-trace tool (again, just google it) and if not, torrent Vector Magic which is lightweight and simple as fuck

>>362630
>Which SVG option is the best?
I always go for eps, plain svg works as well

>gimp instead
no, that's for raster files

>SVG files that I got from Wikipedia
then you should be able to export it in vectorial without any problems
>>
>>362634
What is the difference between: "Inkscape SVG" file and "Plain SVG" file?
>>
>>362635
plain svg is universal and can be opened with whatever program you want
inkscape svg surely saves some extra editing capability but only if you open it with inkscape
don't expect your printshop to be running your same software, use something that won't create compatibility problems
>>
>>362646
I already save my design on "Inkscape SVG" file. Can I open up that SVG file and then save it as "Plain SVG" file without any problem?

yes. just save it as .eps and stop worrying about it.

now that I look at it again I realize that Felix has CMYK channels shifted (not RGB) and that some are shifted forward while some others are shifted backwards from the main movement but the concept on how to do it is pretty much the same.

Is there a way to edit a font with photoshop so that its completely usable by windows? Duckduckgo doesnt wanna help me since it keeps thinking that I just want to add a new font to photoshop, but I want to be able to edit the full .ttf files.
Or if thats not possible whats a decent free font editor thats not too difficult to get into? I want to be able to just draw letters (or in this case numbers since some of them are unintelligible, plus I need to add an ß since it doesnt have it) since the original font looks hand drawn as well.

Also if anyone could maybe explain the legal situation with fonts even though I can already imagine that its pure cancer. For example hipsterish which my customer (who is also my mom) wants me to use, obviously has a free version which Im using now, but also a pro version that includes bold letters and allows you to use it for different shit, see pic related. The primary use right now is for flyers, business cards and stamp cards, so print only, which isnt included in the list of available shit, and I guess since the creator will never be able to find out if a local business uses the font they dont care.
But it is possible that in the future she will also want a website, which ideally should use the same design as the printed stuff. How much would I need to change up the font for it to be legally mine? Is there even anything the original designer can do even in the off chance of them finding the website?

you can't magically go from one ratio to another and keep the image the same

After Effects, takes like a few minutes to do the basic setup.
Make two solid layers, click 3D switch, put a Grid effects on them and Offset to scroll them if you want to animate it.
Add an adjustment layer on top a add a pirated VHS tape effects plugin there.
Then add a camera and position your grid layers accordingly in 3D space. Wa-la!
Of course you will have to tweak it a lot until it looks good.
>>
>>365352
Alternatively, you might want to try Cinema 4D for a more flexible approach without limiting yourself to flat grids.

i generally use blackmagicdesign fusion for this (plus you could animate it), but if you're looking for something more mainstream blender + photoshop or something similar would work too.

Why do 95% of serif typfaces look the same?
>>
>>365670
maybe to an outsider, they do. But do you even know the difference between oldstyle, transitional, modern, slab, etc? do you understand that the old serif typefaces were developed before most experimentation with type started in XIXth century, because woodblock and lithography had not appeared yet, and most type was made for books?
to answer the question, they might look similar, but the difference is in the details. the contrast, the form of serifs, the size of apertures, the axis, the construction of some glyphs, etc. if it looks the same to you, might as well say Helvetica and Frutiger look the same.

wetransfer is reliable, affordable and lets you customize the look of the download screen with your branding or whatever. don't send the wetransfer directly to your client though, send it to yourself and you will get a shortened link that's way more tidy than your client getting a mail from wetransfer with a long as fuck link to the download

I don't know why you care about it like it's an "icon".
that said, I think it's a nice example of pre-modern design which anticipated many later design trends.
it's curious that initially the cans looked differently, and apparently the change to 2 colors was inspired by Cornell football team uniform. goes to show that colors are a simple, good way to create identity.
these 2 solid blocks of color proved recognizable, while being really minimalist and boasting some white space—this is especially groundbreaking for the time when deliberate Victorian and Art Nouveau designs still prevailed (see picrelated).
In result they achieved a very focused, powerful, and recognizable package, that was ahead of its time and could remain with minimum redesign over decades. like with Coca-Cola script, their script logo aged nicely, going from trendy font of the era to a symbol of something traditional and American. and eventually it became iconic, if only because of the time it has remained unchanged.
that said, design didn't stand at one place all that time, so while good, today you won't surprise anyone with it, IMO.

Question for designers about printing. I'm new to design, why do designers ask clients what's their printing budget? Is it because colors are more expensive than others? Is there a website that I can check to see the costs to how much certain colors cost than others?

I'm really lost on this matter. Every shit like future always asks the client the printing budget
>>
>>366071
In terms of how universally it's used.
>>
>>366109
from my experience designing fonts, start with "u,n,a,c,o" for the basic shapes of your minuscules. And "h,p,t" to get a feel for your descenders and ascenders.
For your majuscules, go for "A,B,T,O,M,R"
Adrian Frutiger is someone who has a well documented typographic process.
>>
>>366276
paperquality is also a factor. And the type of printing depends on the desired volume a client is willing to pay. makes your job easier, makes calculations easier. and you could even argue breaking down budgets of a client is part of a sales tactic
>>
>>366284
it's a tough call, because Helvetica is far more universal than anything serif. it may be used for anything from logos to headlines to body type, while serif is usually reserved for body. Helvetica also is also often labeled "neutral", and not without reason, because it fits almost everywhere. compare this to fonts like Bodoni which look distinctive and carry quite obvious connotations.
so if you're looking for SAME level universality, I think that's impossible.
and the closest thing? it's a boring answer, but probably the classics, old style and transitional. both old stuff like Garamond and Baskerville, and contemporary stuff like Sabon and Ms Eaves. heck, even Times New Roman or Georgia do the job pretty well.

Here goes:

What program(s) would I need to accomplish the following?

I have an image - a cover of a music single, to be specific - the band name's logo has been designed to resemble the kinds of light bulbs you'd see surrounding a vanity sort of mirror in a dressing room.

I would like random "bulbs" in the logo to flash. Further, can flashes occur to a certain speed to match the beat-per-minute of the song?

Also, for the name of the album which is also written on the cover, I'd like each letter to "flash," one-after-the-other and back, repeating for the length of the song/video.

What would I need to accomplish this? After Effects or something like that? I have Final Cut Pro X, if that helps...
>>
>>366404

but anyway, as I understand it, the worth of Warhol is that he did what no one did before him: he bridged the gap between pop culture and high art. like in postmodern, it wasn't so much about just style, but about symbols, contexts, and trying to redefine what can be high art.

why didn't you mention this? this is a whole different issue. why couldn't you just explain what you said to them?
if they want the face, you could try to make a more minimal version of the portrait if they accept this-look at KFC or this version of Quaker. but you can see that to these brands, these figures are central to their identity.
also, if they are your clients, you should be the designer, not the client. ask them why they want it and what they want, achieve perfect understanding. maybe they just want to look like some other brand, or want traditional feel.
