bjbj Design elements help improve your text or graphic by adding creativity and style,
and we re gonna show you how to make your very own unique design elements. Now there
s four things you need to know in order to pull off this effect. The first thing is what
materials you re gonna need to gather. The second thing is how to set up those materials
so that your camera can record it perfectly. The third thing is some techniques you can
use to make better design elements, and the fourth thing is how to implement those design
elements into your project. m Dan Bruns and this is Design Elements. Now the two different
design elements we re gonna be taking a look at are the ink spread and the ink drop, and
the materials you re gonna need for the ink spread is a fish tank, some filter paper in
order to drop your ink onto and watch it spread, your dropper to drop the actual ink onto the
filter paper, some black ink, some water and a bowl to put your filter paper in and let
it soak. Finally another great material to have for both effects is a white foam core
board to use as a background behind your fish tank. Next up is the set-up for both of these
design elements. The first one we re gonna take a look at is our ink drop. What you re
gonna need for this is a tank and you re gonna want it placed on a flat table just like we
ve done here and then fill up your tank almost all the way to the top with some water. Once
you ve done that you re gonna want to take your foam core board and place it behind the
tank either on a wall with some tape or on a post. Now in our case we use a C-stand.
After that you re gonna want to take two very bright lights and light your foam core board
in order to over-expose it. This is going to help you to composite in your editing software.
Now you re gonna want to make sure you zoom in all the way with your camera until the
white foam core board fills the entire frame. Now the last part of this process is to take
your dropper and fill it up completely with black ink in order to put into your tank.
When it comes to the ink spread effect you re gonna want to take the tank and place it
on its side between two objects of the same height. Now in our case we used six shipping
boxes. When it comes to lighting, unlike our ink drop effect, we want the ink spread to
look like a silhouette. Now in order to do this we re gonna take two strong lights and
put them directly over the top of our tank to make them shine straight down through the
paper and make it look over-exposed. The next thing you re gonna want to do is take your
filter paper and put it into a bowl filled with water so that you soak the filter paper
completely. Then you re gonna want to take that filter paper and place it on top of the
tank and flatten it out so that there s no air bubbles. Similar to our ink drop design
element we re gonna want to take our dropper and fill it with black ink. Now the next thing
we re gonna look at are some techniques to pull off this effect. The first one we re
gonna look at is the ink drop effect. Now with the ink drop effect the first thing you
re gonna want to make sure is that the water stays even the entire time in your tank, otherwise,
your ink might actually have a zig-zag design to it. Another great idea is to link your
camera to a video monitor so you can actually see what you re doing and exactly where you
should place that ink drop, and the last thing you re gonna wanna look at doing is instead
of just dropping one drop at a time into your water is actually shooting the drops into
your water and this adds a lot of variety to your effect. Now some great techniques
you can use to pull off the ink spread effect is to make sure you have a tripod that can
get low to the ground so that you can point it straight up through the tank. Something
else to consider when pulling off this effect is to use different types of filter paper
which will allow you to get a variety of ink spreads. The last thing you can do is instead
of just dropping single drops of ink on your filter paper you can squeeze out the ink to
make designs. Now using this technique you can actually spell a person s name out and
watch it spread naturally afterwards. The last step we re gonna take a look at is how
to implement these elements into your design. Now you re gonna want to take these elements
into your favorite editing application and make sure that the background, the white background
from the foam core board is completely blown out or completely white by using things like
contrast and brightness. That will help you when you use your composite mode such as overlay
to get rid of the background and make it completely transparent. Now once you have composited
your elements into your design you may want to look at making your design even better
by speeding up your ink drops and also by taking multiple ink drops and putting them
together in one title design. Making great video doesn t always involve huge explosions
and special effects. Instead by using the techniques we showed you today you can make
your titles and graphics equally as impressive. [End of Audio] Creating Design Elements Page
