Based on the “Sci-fi analog Monitor in Photoshop” tutorial, this extended toolkit will unlock the full power of your dystopian analog processing unit.
Includes 2 actions – one to instantly generate the Pixelated Sci-Fi Monitor effect, plus an action that walks you through each setting to create custom-tailored effects.
Includes the original pixelate patterns plus 14 bonus looks – from chunky pixelated blocks to detailed neural networks… even a Matrix-themed effect.
For an in depth look at how the effect works, plus some ideas and inspiration, be sure to check out the original “Lo-Fi Sci-Fi Monitor” tutorial.
NOTE: This is the Photoshop version of the project. For motion graphics, check out the After Effects version here!
