    Hi,

    Is anyone familiar with those two applications? I have a project to do but I'm stuck with something and I really need help.

    Basically, I want to create a "speed effect" for my letters. Like, this images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSGer6nsKy6qu688QTtyz7 (just the red part) and I have no idea of how to do it


    Thankssss

    You should probably make the red shape first without the teeth. Then overlay on top of the red shape appropriate length/width triangles, then subtract the top shape from the bottom shape.

    Well if you're talking public transportation maybe you should think of making the logo look slow. Haha, but I digress.

    Have you considered ditching the circles and making the lines come out horizontally from the letters in one direction? Or you can have the "O" encircle the ST and have the ends extend out?

    the thing is the "half circle" is cool cuz the shape of the area in which this public transportation company is incorporated has the shape of "C" which is why i wanted to keep it

    but what did you say about overlaying and substracting to make the "teeth" effect? how do i do that?

    Oh you will have to recreate that part.
    And what do you mean by the transportation effect?

    Well, you could use the effect that's in the example you provided and draw some long triangles to show motion. Otherwise, there's a motion blur filter under the blur section in the photoshop filters. You could give that a shot.

    Put your camera on 1/30th of a second shutter speed, ISO 100, and f-stop of ~11 (in broad daylight with no clouds).

    Swing your camera while taking a picture of the letter you want motion on.

    Voila, you have a picture of a letter with motion...without Photoshop.

    for the slant, edit > transform > skew. and you can draw the teeth out using the polygonal marquee tool, paintbrush it with a color, and overlay it on top. though i would say there isn't enough solid color in the logo for it to read. filter > blur > motion blur could work.
    good luck!

    I have a decent amount of experience in Photoshop and some experience in Illustrator.

    As far as I know there is no real easy way to do a "teeth effect" in photoshop. My recommentation would be to use the pen tool in illustrator to created pointed shapes, then use photoshop to combine the two elements. You could also create vector shapes in photoshop too, it doesn't make much difference. You could try using multiple layers and throwing in a slight motion blur too. Just mask out the parts you don't want if the blur is too big. I hope this helps, good luck.icon_biggrin.gif

    Create the red part first on one layer.

    Duplicate the red layer and turn the new red into white.

    Next use the wind blast effect on the white layer until you get the desired effect that you want.

    Then use your marquee tool to delete the portion of the white that you no longer need, thus leaving the wind blasted parts.

    Finally line the wind blasts over the red how you would like them and then merge the two layers.
