can you point out some user-friendly software to make animated psychedelic visuals for music?
preferably something that has easy geometry transformations, basic fluid dynamics and lots of organic fx presets

my goal is to blend some of my 2D/3D stills into an interesting atmosphere

thanks
>>
>>402449
you'll have to pick between 'user-friendly' shit visuals and good visuals but hard to learn software
https://limeartgroup.com/the-mega-list-of-vj-software-and-tools/

most people pick resolume though
>>
>>402450
resolume is gr8 for triggering/mixing the visuals but you need somewhere to create them in the first place

>>402449
unironically, aftereffects
might look intimidating but it ain't that hard
>organic fx presets
I wouldn't advise it normally but in your case, download a bunch of cool looking plugins and play around with their many presets. Most of the trapcode suite comes with an effect builder which can be tuned intuitively with a graphic UI

i LOVE touchdesigner. node based coding, and really not hard to create something simple. Also its real time rendering so that works really well with live music sets.

I want a creative/interesting/symbolic wedding band set but I'm incompetent. Everything online is maximalist or meaningless, due to the nature of mass production/consumption.
Help design an interesting set of wedding bands and leave your name and the reward will be that you will be remembered forever. Basically whenever someone asks "where did you get that from?" I'll say, X designed it on /gd/. Godspeed

I'm super self-conscious of my skills, and I'm afraid that while I enjoy /gd/ and spent some time drawing and attending design classes at uni my skills will never be enough for real /gd/ jobs.

Realistically, should I compare myself with works on dribble before I find my first "real" job?
What should I expect? I'm willing to keep practicing and improving I'm just afraid of never making it.

Everyone sucks at first, something I heard on here that motivate me when I started was that most people have zero knowledge or skills in graphic design so even people that suck can get big gigs (here's an example uniquedesignz.net he's made more than $1M from that website)

This other guy ended up working with JJ Abrams and he's first works are some of the worse I ever seen
https://youtu.be/6KBZj0nHCDw?t=966

I have also seen people in the Illustration Freelance industry talking about how even if they have 20+ years of experience they always compare their works and that people will always hire you to make the same work you show that's why they always go back and delete work they don't like.

Everyone is nervous starting out. The first time I designed something that was printed and sold nationwide I was nervous as hell.

Drawing has very little to do with design, so I'm wondering if you even know what kinds of work designers do.

The reality is, you won't know until you jump in and try it. Some people have the technical skills, but don't have the ideas. Some people have ideas, but are shit at putting them together (they tend to be art directors and concept people) Some wanna be designers are hopeless. Nobody here can tell you how well you'd do.

Honestly? Dribble is bottom of the barrel design, go for it. Take a small money gig, see how you do. The first gig is always the hardest. I learned a lot by just jumping in and trying, but I had friends who were designers who walked me through some things before I started taking classes. But you have to dive in, learn the software, work your creative muscles hard, and learn.

But the reality is, a couple of local fliers and menus and such that someone paid for and accepted and are happy with count a lot more than some made up student level stuff, in your portfolio. Get SOMETHING done, and see how it goes.

AutoCAD can do what Illustrator can do (minus line strokes) much quicker and more accurately. If I wanted to add strokes to an image made in CAD, I could just do it in Inkscape.

These brightly colored deformed flat people I see could easily be shat out in CAD in 30 minutes.

I don't get it. Why is this an industry standard?

No, it's not just because it's been around forever, they're standard because they're reliable. They support important printing standards. They have decades of research behind them. If I'm working a campaign that will hit 10 million web browsers and has a $5 million dollar print budget, I'm not using Affinity anything. They're not bad apps - for beginners and hobbyists, but at the pro level, you'll get laughed out of the room or fired for trying to use Affinity apps.

Bloated, sure. Unstable? I've never had Illustrator crash in the years and years I've used it.

What always amuses me in these threads is you compare Affinity to Illustrator, but only on the 10% of the toolbase they share in common. But most of you have NO clue to the 90% of Illustrator that Affinity can't even hope to compete with. And I should probably say 5% of the 10% of the toolbase, because the work that's posted here shows a distinct lack of knowledge, period.

The anon who was sperging about AutoCad is hilarious. If he's trolling, 10/10. If he's serious, he's a massive fucking retard.

Its an awning company, but rain would collect in the R, doesn't seem to line up to me
>>
maybe have all letters move instead of just the R.
add an awning onto the left of the r.
make the r really big with an awning covering the other letters?
>>
>>402277
It is a R or is it a B?
If It is a R, why it is rolling down while it says roll up?

My bet would do a logo who works static and try to implement some movement so the "roll up" happens depending on the medium it is displayed (online, video, etc). A effect you may inspire is in the last 4 seconds of this video: https://youtu.be/hmGN1A2B1aY

Also, as other anons mentioned, It should work on black and white first, then you can think of colors

As much as I hate Adobe, I just can't stop using Photoshop. I've used alternatives like Affinity Photo on PC/iPad, and I'd say it's a way better, more modern experience overall, especially for novice users. I think where Photoshop just "sticks" with me is that I'm used to the dated, convoluted experience of using the program that I'm pretty much accustomed to.

imo nothing tops affinity software when it comes to price per benefit; problem is it still lacks some features that make automation easier (e.g. live transformations). Sadly, no one wants to risk and try to make a living with anything different and thats why adobe is the industry standard

Of all the things that you could really do yourself, concentric squares is like day 1 in mspaint shit. Stop looking up concentric squares to try and create a transparent vector and just do that.

Looks like something tried to imitate art nouveau, mixed it with the appearance of copper engraving, and used for his figures a mix out of, early medieval paintings, cave paintings, and comics. And made it so sth. completely wired. It also reminds me occasionally on Japanese woodblock prints.
Is a really wired mix but it looks fine.
