Are you referring to textures used in Effects Lab for Particle Effects and Muzzle Flashes? If you are, it would be nice to elaborate a little on which textures you would like.

I've created a few of my own textures, but I haven't really mastered it yet. Not enough to be helpful, rally. But if you open one of the textures the programs come with, you can see that they are greyscale and perhaps get an idea of how the greyscale affects the color within Elab or Vlab.

Also, whenever someone submits a preset it bundles all the necessary textures into the package you download, so when people use their own textures in an effect, you will get them when you download the preset.

If I get it figured out any better I will post something more informative, unless they get an official tutorial posted or something.

I made some pretty cool textures the other day, from photos of flames that I had taken. I made some fire presets from them that turned out pretty good, I thought. I also made some from footage of sparks that I used in a couple presets that are still pending. I can explain basically how I did it using Photoshop, if you want.

Please do. PS is the most popular Photo editor/image editing program, most digital artists have it. It would surely help out a lot and enhance our visuals as far as original/custom particle effects go. I am intereted, a tutorial would rock. Maybe make it FXH tutorial style and get Tarn to put it in the Tute section? (I hope we have more user created tutes in the official section.)

PS- Axeman, as far as presets go, you seem to be on the ball! Good job, and they sound promising. Thanks a ton.

Thanks. I'll try get a tutorial put together soon, and I guess I might as well go a bit more detailed with it. I've been experimenting with VisionLab quite a bit, and am still figuring lots of stuff out, but it is capable of much more and much better than I had expected, even though I thought it would be great to begin with. I've always been somewhat picky about the quality of the plug-ins and now presets that i submit, but the last few I've been working on have even impressed me. I hope everyone else likes 'em too, once they are posted.
