Hello everyone. Can someone come up with a preset for X-RAY VISION? I am all out of ideas. It has to look like an old NEG.ART effect only better.

HELP.

Thanks,
Lyle

Did you try searching the preset area? Because there is like 5 Xray presets available there. Leave out the hyphen when you search.

If those aren't doing it for you, please provide some very specific explanation of why they won't work and what needs to be different.

Why don't you do something totally different and create an effect that "X-ray vision" would really look like?

Everyone goes for the old "negative" image trick, but that's only because medical X-rays have made us believe that if we looked through an object, we'd see a negative image of whatever was on the other side.

Medical X-ray pictures only look like film negative because they are exposed and processed on negative film stock. It just so happens that this is good for viewing, because it makes bones look white, which they are.

But if you had X-ray vision, you would also have the faculty in your brain of reversing what you saw with it. So, really, an "x-ray vision" effect should be simply a positive overlay of whatever is supposed to be inside/behind/below the object you're looking through.
