I'm having a little problem and I can't find any solution. I'm a newbie myself so sorry if it's a really dumb question. I'm trying to copy a part of a manga page without resizing it, just copying it and exporting it and when I do it and move it to davinci it loses a lot of quality. Pic related is what happens. The character on the left is from the whole page and on the right is the copy paste that I did. Is there a way to not lose quality when copying pasting and exporting?

Thanks a lot.

Looks like you shrinked the image. When you do that it will condense the pixels so it tends to get worse the smaller you make it. Maybe try upping the grain of an image to try to restore the resolution.

anyone care to explain where i can start to learn to draw different motives in a style like this? i´m simply not able to find a tutorial or wrap my head around it, thanks in advance

is it just like a low poly design but with more lines to certain areas, to make it appear lighter?
>>
Use a deer as a mask and overlay a poly grid image. Add details like the lines though the antlers manually.

i think theres a decent amount of 'procedural' looking stuff that is actually drawn to look that way.
in this image, the way the vertices join other vertices is irregular and deliberated used as lighting and shading

if i were going to attempt this image, id open Rhino, set an image as a background, then open grasshopper within rhino to make lists and groups of points that i could organize and control the lines and connections thy made

I remember when I'm designing the assets including the backgrounds in Photoshop, everything is already being designed and preset according to the end user display screen and you just slice the jpeg file in dreamweaver and from that, navigation buttons are created: hover (where animation does it things as gifs/swf files or simply changed to different colour/outer glow), mouse on (clicking, button down, turned green), mouse off (idle).
Can anon derive the modern version from that workflow?

What do you call this semi transparent layer here to make the text more readable?

Contrast enhancer?
>>
>>434333
This.
It's a backdrop because it's non focal, the objective is to help people focus on the text not whatever is behind the text.

I often use a box of blur for a more subtle effect, because it doesn't leave hard lines around the edge of the backdrop box.
This is very common for print media because it avoids Picks of color right at the edge of neutral text, you don't accidentally print a single pixel of red next to the text which could potentially bleed into the text and ruin the outline

You can even apply a negative only blur so the text is written with the original image
>>
>>434280
Agreed. A layer behind the text with a few pixels of a Grey gaussian blur is enough to stand out against the white shirt.
>>
>>433990
Transparent*, because translucent only gives blurred light. Transparent are giving what's through it and light

I'm not sure if this is the board to for this, but since /g/ wasn't really of much help, I'm asking here now.
I need recommendations on video editing programs that aren't too dependant on your computer specs. Something like Premiere Pro or Sony Vegas is out of the picture.
I was using DaVinci Resolve before, but an update made it unuseable for some weird reason, and I started using Shotcut after that, but it feels really basic and lacks a lot of features.
I'm probably gonna start downloading every single editor out there to try them all, but before I try that shotgun approach, I wanted to hear from someone with experience first.

If this isn't the board for this question, then help me a bit and redirect me somewhere I can ask this stupid question.
