What is the best way to create a bright neon effect / composite (3d image of science fiction)

Hi all

I want to create a few areas/nice glowing lights in my image 3d below. I made with some bright polygons that help to light the scene with realism. I have the image in color and also a rendered image with just the bright polygons which I guess / hope I would be able to use as a mask to help me create the glow in Photoshop. Anyone have guidance to help me get started with regard to how to set up the mask and create the glow?

Here are 2 example images below are to illustrate what I mean.

Thank you, Steve




Hi Steve,.

Glow is very easy to use, but here is a video tutorial how to use it. The tutorial is done for version 1 and version 2 has the ability to paint on a mask of in the plugin, which is what I did with your image. It is a new feature and is not covered in the video but very obvious use.

  • What is the best way to create a line with triangles at each end, as in a timeline? (See attached example).


    Sorry for the low resolution. I would like to create a line with a triangle at each end, similar to the one illustrated. What is the best way to achieve this using InDesign? I will create three or four and we will add the month abbreviations for years.

    I'd probably use the online tool to create the line. You can hold the SHIFT key to make the straight line. For triangles, you can either use the polygon tool (shift click to set the number of sides) or you can create a square with the rectangle tool (hold down the SHIFT key while dragging to make a square) and use the pen tool to remove a corner of the shape, creating a triangle. I generally prefer the polygon tool.

  • What is the best way to create a bookmark for a user to return?

    Hello to all... hello again Steve... I'm back with another question - what is the best way to set up a bookmark system so return users can pick up where they left off in a lesson of AW? I tried the usual internet research, always do, but a few samples and answers I found were AW5, not a lot of help...

    I have a dozen or so cards attached to my frame, I would like a user to return to the last card that he read before the close. (My AW communicates very well with database Access, so if passing a variable to access and back to AW when begins the lesson is on track, let me know...) If the answer here is too complicated, perhaps pushing me in the right direction and I'll me dive in.

    Thanks in advance to all those who have some tips, I really appreciate it!


    Try this overview, see if it helps...

    Enter a reference to the map as you enter, then save to the database when you exit.

    You want something that will give you the equivalent of a page number - if you have 7 cards hung the setting, and the user is in the 6th plan when it stops, you want to save the number 6.

    There are dozens of ways to do it, but probably the easiest way is just to attach a calc to each card that has this code

    (I do not have Authorwar very convenient to check the syntax, then you should check out!)

    BookMarkPage = ChildIDtoNum (IconParent (IconID), IconID)<-- tells="" authorware="" to="" return="" the="" "page="" number"="" of="" the="" current="">

    Save BookMarkPage in your Access database to the exit.

    In return, read the bookmark in BookMarkPage, ask the user if he wants to go back to the bookmark. If so, use a calculated navigation that uses

    ChildNumToID (@the of your frame name or its ID, BookMarkPage)

    Note that you could argue something similar by recording the your card, the IconTitle or IconID but these two can break if never update you your file by adding or removing pages, renaming etc. With this method, all you need is a simple page County check that makes sure you don't try to nav for a page number that does not exist (use IconNumChildren).


  • What is the best way to create a test of 'Perception of risk?

    Hi all

    I record a screen which is 10 seconds long. What I want to do is to create a Quiz in which they answer the question correctly and the score is reported to my LMS.

    The question is "click here WHEN you see the white rabbit on the screen.

    I don't want to click on the white rabbit. I want to click on a button or something to this effect which is not related to the video. But the White Rabbit appears after 7 seconds and lasts only 1 second.

    Otherwise, I can split the video in 10 pictures. If the user clicks on the Executive 1,2,3,4,5,6,8,9 or 10 then they get the wrong answer and we go to the next question. If they click over 7, then it is a good answer.

    Please can someone tell me the best way to make this request? I have been responsible for creating about 100 questions similar to this one so facilitated development is essential for me!

    Thanks in advance.


    Welcome to the forum.

    I assume that you saved it as a complete movement?

    He did not go full out, but it might be an idea:

    • bring a drawing object (rectangle or polygon) on the blade with a duration for the rest of the slide
    • Add a click box, score, in addition to this oppose but it time to be there for the duration of the appearance of "white rabbit." be sure to not have suspended

    If the user clicks on the "drawing" when the click box is not there, nothing will be added to the score. When you click on it during the short life of the click box, the score will be added.


  • What is the best way to create a custom Windows XP slipstreamed CD so that I can install fees and be perfectly up-to-date on security updates at the end of the installation?

    I have Windows XP SP3 OEM CD. I want to use to create a 'new' Windows XP OEM CD slipstreamed which would include at each update published security for XP since Service Pack 3. After researching this project for a bit, I noticed that an unholy amount of security updates have been released since Service Pack 3. My main question is how can I get all these security updates without having to monotonous download each individually? Or is this the only way? Is there a website that is legitimate and can be trusted who was respected and compressed these updates of security in a single file that can be downloaded? How can I incorporate these security updates? It is even possible to integrate these security updates or would they simply be performed one after the other during the installation of Windows XP?

  • What is the best way to create and release temporary CLOB parameters?

    Oracle Database 11 g Enterprise Edition Release - 64 bit Production on Solaris

    I have a procedure that calls another procedure with one of the parameters being an IN OUT NOCOPY CLOB.

    I create the temporary CLOB in proc_A, make the call to proc_B and then temporary free again.
    In proc_B I create a REFCURSOR and use with dbms_xmlgen to create XML.

    To make the code look like at bottom
    CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE client_xml( p_client_id IN            NUMBER
                                           ,p_clob      IN OUT NOCOPY CLOB   ) AS
       v_rc         SYS_REFCURSOR;
       v_queryCtx   dbms_xmlquery.ctxType;
       OPEN c_rc FOR
          SELECT col1
            FROM clients
           WHERE client_id = p_client_id;
       v_queryCtx := dbms_xmlgen.newContext(v_rc);
       p_clob     := dbms_xmlgen.getXML(v_queryCtx, 0);
       v_clob       CLOB;
       v_client_id  NUMBER;
       v_client_id := 123456;
       dbms_lob.createTemporary(v_clob, TRUE, dbms_lob.CALL);
       client_xml( p_client_id => v_client_id
                  ,p_clob      => v_clob);
    However, I just learned the hard way that IN OUT NOCOPY is a hint and Oracle sometimes creates a local variable for the CLOB in any case.
    One solution is to change the procedure of client_xml above
    CREATE OR REPLACE PROCEDURE client_xml( p_client_id IN            NUMBER
                                           ,p_clob      IN OUT NOCOPY CLOB   ) AS
       v_rc         SYS_REFCURSOR;
       v_queryCtx   dbms_xmlquery.ctxType;
       IF NOT NVL(dbms_lob.istemporary(p_clob),0) = 1 THEN
          dbms_lob.createTemporary(p_clob, TRUE, dbms_lob.CALL);
       END IF;
       OPEN c_rc FOR
          SELECT col1
            FROM clients
           WHERE client_id = p_client_id;
       v_queryCtx := dbms_xmlgen.newContext(p_refcursor);
       p_clob     := dbms_xmlgen.getXML(v_queryCtx, 0);
    My concern is that in the case of Oracle creates a local variable, 2 temporary will be created, but there will be only 1 freeTemporary.
    This led to a memory could flee?
    Or should I be secure with the above solution because I am using dbms_lob. CALL?

    Thank you

    Why don't you:

    1 use a function instead of a procedure
    2. have the function create the temporary CLOB and fill
    3. what return them temp

    This way a copy of the CLOB object is created.

    If you use a brush, you can make a model reusable and adjustable teeth. For example, you can apply it to any path of the form and can adjust the number of teeth by changing the weight of the race.
