Glitch Text Effect Script for GIMP

Post#1 by tim » 14 Jun 2018, 21:20


I thought this was a great find by GIMPER (in this post).
referencing youtube video tutorial by "Logos by Nick" (logosByNick.com): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ld22XQDiUI
This script will generate glitch text effect out of your text.
glitch_text.zip #
zipped .py file (unzip, put in your GIMP's plug-ins/ folder) Tested in GIMP 2.8 & 2.10
(1.96 KiB) Downloaded 815 times
Script Menu Location: Python-Fu/Glitchy Text...

Instructions:
1. Download a 1024x768 version of static image here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/bswise/3368467066 and save it to a folder you'll remember to locate it later when running script.
2. In GIMP, Create a new image 1024x768.
3. Create White Text with a decent size.
4. Select this Text layer. Run Script (Python-Fu/Glitchy Text...). Optionally change number of glitches (random horizontal static shifts), right shift color, left shift color. Select your static image saved in step 1 for the last option. Click "OK" to run script.
5. That's it you can leave it as is of if you follow the youtube video closely, you can optionally change opacity of the static image layer (the only layer with a mask) and change hue/saturation/lightness of the text layer named "visible".

Don’t be afraid to start over. It’s a new chance to rebuild what you want.
