Explore a simple and effective lighting effect using the Radial Blur filter.
- [Instructor] In this movie, I'd like to show you…how to create this lighting effect…using the radial filter.…Here's the starting point,…and because I want to apply a filter to my type layer,…I am first going to convert my type layer to a smart object.…Right click on it, Convert to Smart Object.…Then come to the Filter menu, to Blur, and to Radial Blur.…Now this filter is a very old filter.…It doesn't have a preview,…but we do get to change the blur center…using this proxy here.…
It's not the most accurate,…'cause you just have to relate this to your image,…but I want the blur to occur not from the center point,…but from the left.…And it's remembering the value that I used before.…I'm going to go with an amount of 80…and this is a zoom, and in terms of the quality,…obviously it takes longer to render it at best quality.…Draft quality gives you a more grainy look…which doesn't necessarily look any worse,…it's just a different kind of feel to it.…
Anyway, I'm going to go with best quality…and that's my result.…Now what I want to do is restore the type.…
