Nice attempt, it looks like the white and black parts need to be sharper.

esper: you know the plastic or glass script? i think the ps original looks a lot like the results of that script, maybe you should take a look at that.

#Esper:

Although is a water effect, I think part of it, the lighting, you can apply it to your purpose.

i wish somebody could rewrite these scripts in python so that they have a preview

thanks he4rty

i have seen this tutorial before, its again with Lighting Effects

the cool thing about the PS effect, is that its all done with layereffects

the highlights are shrinked with an interesting curve, that doesnt seem to work in Gimp

you know, all these great text examples make me want to have a go at it myself :)

A while ago photocomix posted about text/logos on the old G'MIC forum and I made a quick test filter to check the idea (which worked fine). It would be quite easy to make vast numbers of text filters, but I wasn't sure if PC was going to do that himself and I don't like to steal ideas. Plus there's the problem of taking the fun out of using gimp to do it. Does anyone think it's worth making G'MIC text filters? I suppose you do have the advantage of a preview...
