Shadows and Shadow Play

Fri 14 Nov 2014, 02:40 PM



by Ben Langhinrichs
It's been a while since I posted a Gimp 2.8 tutorial, though my recent one on Camtasia has been popular, so today I've released one which has two parts. The first part (about a minute long) shows a simple, but effective way to create a shadow for a cut-out figure when you paste it into a scene. It's easy and useful. The second part (about three minutes long) shows how to wake the shadow up and make it do something independent. Essentially, it becomes a cinemagraph (remember this one?) where the shadow is the only thing that moves. In fact, it is the one shown below the video.
 
 
Video is best watched in HD, and has closed captions for easier following along.
