Create a vibrating two-tone look with the Difference blend mode in this video.
- Here I'd like to show you a very simple,…and very effective treatment where we are using…the different blending modes to get…this positive and negative effect,…placing a letter against a background,…and we see the letter defined by the pattern,…but offset from the pattern.…I'm not sure that's a good way of describing it,…but you can see what I mean.…This is the starting point, and I'd like to,…first of all, just show you how I created the background.…
Of course, this will work with all sorts…of different backgrounds, but my background was created…with a combination of filters,…starting with a half-tone pattern,…and then I applied a wave to that half-tone pattern,…and then, using the lens correction filter,…I have rotated that wave so that we have this pattern,…and I now want to work this pattern into my type object.…So I'll click on the layer above to turn on my type.…
I need to move my type layer beneath my pattern layer,…and then select the pattern layer,…and change its blending mode to Difference.…Now, this effect is going to work best…
