glitch tutorial

10

So how I make the glitch effects for both Fatal and the comic is probably the thing I get asked the most about, haha. That and the red eye hug thing :)

And I know some of ya’ll have been asking for a WHILE now (like, a few of the very first asks on this blog were about the glitches), so I apologize for taking so long to finally get around to explain it. I knew I wanted to do something like this and I just needed some time to get it done. Hope it’s worth the wait, and I hope you find it helpful :)

the-sky-was-mistaken  asked:

Hello! I saw your morgana gifset and I was wondering how you made that glitch effect on the first and last one gifs? Could you tell me? :)

Sure! I’ll do my best to explain it though I’m really bad at that so bear with me XD

MINI GLITCH TUTORIAL:

Just to clarify, when I say frame I’m talking about the images in my animation panel, and when I say layer, I’m talking about the images in my layer panel. 

So first, I decided what frame it is I want to have the glitch. For example, I’ll use this frame:

In my animation panel, I duplicate this frame. The duplicated frame is the one we’re going to edit. Make sure you have that selected, and then duplicate the layer that corresponds to that frame in your layer panel. Sorry if that’s super confusing, hopefully a visual helps:

So now we take that duplicated layer on top, and double click the layer so this box shows up:

In the advanced blending section where it says channels, uncheck the “R” box and then press ok. 

Now you shift the layer image into a new position, wherever you think looks best, and it should look something like this after you move it:

As you can see I’ve shifted the top layer slightly up and to the left, with the original layer showing underneath:

You can stop there if you want, but I did this process again in another new frame, this time moving it slightly down and to the right:

 

And that’s basically it! You can also shift shapes instead of the whole duplicated image if you want a more glitch like effect. what you would do is use the square selection tool to make different sized rectangle selections (hold down shift to make several at once, you can do as many or as few as you want). then you’d press ctrl+T to transform and shift over just those rectangular selections. Ex:

And all together it should hopefully turn out something like this:

Also, a quick note, in this circumstance I had to turn off my black & white filter on just the glitch frames so the blue and red disturbances would show through. 

(EDIT: For those of you having trouble with that duplicated layer covering the rest of your frames, The solution is to go to your first frame in the animation panel and have that selected, and then in your layer panel, turn off the layer you had duplicated that’s showing on every frame. It should turn it off for all of them and show the frames normal again. Then select the frame you have the glitch on and turn the layer back on. It should show normally now for just that part.)

Sorry, the-sky-was-mistaken, I hope this isnt too confusing. Let me know if you have more questions! :) 

Final gifset here

the process i used to make this:

  1. recorded video with my phone (h264, 1920x1080 resolution, mp4 container)
  2. copied video stream to a .ts container with ffmpeg (audio left untouched)
  3. shuffled the file with byebyte (min/max flags as such: –min 0.0049 –max .999  so as not to damage the header/footer, chunk flags: –chunk-min 200000 –chunk-max 50000000   i think you can be pretty flexible with these, though using ridiculously small numbers might just completely break it).
  4. transcoded result to h264 with ffmpeg, removing audio with the -an flag and skipped duplicate frames (mp4 container, should probably experiment more with this)

what i got was a file that played really fucked up in vlc (v2.0.5, it’s an older version. i find newer versions are able to play fucked up files with less glitches. NOT COOL.), but when i tried to capture images from it with virtualdub (my go-to app for gif making) the video played completely normal. normal but out of order.

i tried transcoding the glitched file with handbrake to see if that would “bake” the glitch, but i still got a file that played fucked up in vlc, but fine in virtualdub.

Some things I played with to really nail this glitch down:

  • when i first discovered this glitch i had removed the audio when transcoding the shuffled video. when i tried to reproduce this glitch i removed the audio when i copied the video to a .TS file(step 2). after shuffling and transcoding the video played absolutely fine. so i need to remove audio at the LAST STEP. (if at all?)
  • the lower the quality in step 4 the less glitchy the file played. at -crf 35 the glitch was barely present. at -crf 15 the video hung up a lot and the glitch was very pronounced.
  • the glitch is not baked so each time the video plays completely differently. i let a 20 second clip loop around a few times while recording with OBS and it was different each time.
  • if i skipped step two and tried to shuffle an .mp4 and then transcode it, ffmpeg cannot even locate the video stream at all and repeatedly errors out.
  • there’s a possibility you can just leave the audio in the whole time. maybe it just doesn’t work when you shuffle an audioless video.

anyway. i went out and recorded some video and was able to reproduce this again with the four steps above. i will continue to play around with this later and report back. this is pretty vague, but i’m bad at teaching people anything at all. drop me an ask if you want the exact parameters i used in ffmpeg or whatever.

Glitching with Audacity Part2

Hi, So in part one I covered the basics of glitching with audacity. This post is just a visual record of types of effects that you can achieve by bending the data in Audacity.

Again my source Image is.

The images below has a subtle texture effect gained from the Tremolo filter. If you play with the variables in each filter you can really mess a good way. 

The filter used below is the Delay filter. With the Reverse bouncing ball effect selected. 

If you play with the volume settings this filter can be a lot of fun.

Next up is the Noise removal filter. You have to activate this filter by selecting a section to get a noise profile from before the filter will work. As with all the filters you need to play with the settings to get the best effects. A good rule of thumb is if it doesn’t visibly alter the sound data, it won’t affect the image.

The Invert filter, does what you’d expect it to do.

As an example of how altering the variables in the filter will give different effects the Echo filter is one of the easiest to play with.

With a lower echo setting you get

By altering the settings you can control the effect you get. 

The next few do relatively the same thing.

Change tempo.

Change Tempo version 2.

Change Speed 33 1/3 to 72.

Change Speed 75 to 45.

Time stretching will achieve much of the same effects. Have a play.

The other effects such as Changing Pitch filters give some fun results.

A changed to E.

A changed to D.

Using the Equalization filter gives a lot of preset effects and you can alter the Equalizer yourself for added mess.

AES setting in the Equalization filter.

Am Radio setting in the Equalization filter.

I would recommend building a visual guide of the filters effects on the images if you have the time. It allows you to be a bit more discerning in the glitches you choose to use.

In part 3 I’ll look at  the finer details of Importing  Raw data into audacity.

In part 4 I plan to look at other techniques you can use to Glitch.

Have fun playing.

A Quickie Guide To Hex Editing

Before you start    Here’s some supplies to have
- a computer
- a program capable of re-writing files internally
—- in this case, a “hex editor” (either/both automatic/manual; prefer ROM Corrupter 5.99 by Dwedit for automatic, as it can render loseless AVI files, which are godly for pixel freaks and GIF perfectionists; Cygnus Hex Editor for manual, with ease of access and control)
- a program capable of opening said file (if sound, Audacity can open and re-write internally with some practice; otherwise, for this segment, an NES emulator; I prefer Nestopia)
- if graphics, a good painting program for final touches AKA resizing/animating (I prefer GIMP 2.6, NEVER GIMP 2.8; free, capable of exporting animated GIFs, and can scale without interpolation, even for JPEGs, for that crisp-ass quality)
—- if you’re getting into animated files, and are using the AVI exportation route, pick up a program that can make animated GIFs out of AVI files (the freeware Movie To Animated GIF Converter by Evan Olds is perfect for this)
- and of course, victim files (for this segment, ROMs; best to dupe them, and then edit the dupes; ROM Corrupter 5.99 exports dupes without affecting the original automatically; with manual, you gotta do it yourself)

Now that we have    All our tools gathered    Let’s begin by knowing    Our GUI

The basics for Dwedit 5.99

1. Dwedit location
2. Emulator program (normally Nestopia; re-named it to piss off Steam friends)
3. Target file (doesn’t have to be a ROM; can corrupt anything really)
4. End corruption file (rename it to whatever is easy for you)
5. Start corruption range (for NES, all ROMs start at $10)
6. End corruption range (for NES, most ROMS end at $8000(2^X)+$10 [i.e. $20010 for Metroid]
7. Affected bytes
8. What bytes will become

For those that know    Hexadecimals intimately    We can converse about    All what happens    On a mathematical formula    But for now    Let’s just focus    On the results

Not that hard    To get somewhere    Just requires patience    And experimenting    As you can see    Had to change every 941th to 888th byte    You’ll get CPU jammed at times    If it continues to happen    Just change the range    Or which bytes to corrupt

Once you’re satisfied    With your result    You can either screenshot it    Or save it as a movie file    By naming the original capture file    Recording    And then exporting    When you stop recording    And just export it as loseless AVI    Be mindful that sometimes    What we saw    And what the emulator saw    Can be different    Or even too broken    To save as an AVI

We’ll cover what to do    With the image nuggets later

While that covers automatic    Perhaps you like a more    “Pure” approach    That’s dandy too    I’ll go over manual editing too    I would save this solely    For picture files    Or anything smaller than an NES ROM    But hey, anything’s open season

The basics for Cygnus Hex Editor

1. Range
2. Current hexadecimal bytes
3. Current translated bytes

You can use either 2 or 3    For changing bytes in the file    For 2    It has to be in 16base (0-9, and A-F, from 00 to FF)    For 3    It’s any character that is recognized    By the hexadecimal format    AKA just keyboard smash

Boom    Same idea, different paths    After a while    You get the hang for where    Data for the file is stored    Both for automatics and manuals    For PNGs, it usually    Right at the get-go    JPEGs are after the    File format itself    (You’ll see a bunch of 01s 02s and the translations are in a nice pattern    After that are the pixels themselves)

ROMs are trickier    As one company can put all their    Glossy title screens first    Where others may have them last    A good rule of thumb    All the graphics/placement    Are always clumped in their    Respective group    BUT, not always with the other group    Ex.    Samus’s projectile graphics    Could be in $10010-$10040    And where they’re assigned on-screen    In $14010-14040

To make a simple GIF    We’ll use an even simplier program    If you have an AVI file    From using Nestopia    Or any other emulator    Capable of exporting AVI    We can turn it into a GIF    Right here and now

The basics of MTAGC by Evan Olds

1. Select as starting frame
2. Select as ending frame
3. Frame view slider

Little to go over here    Once you selected    What section you want animated    Just export it    Not only can you save    An animated GIF right off the bat    But also save the current frame separately    For other design usage

Here’s what we got

Please note however    That when we export as a loseless AVI    It’s in real-time (~60 fps)    So when being converted    From MTAGC    It will only capture the first frame    Outta every 10    Becoming a 10 fps GIF    If you wish for a 60 fps GIF    You’ll have to use other means    Even then    At least you can export    Every frame viewable with MTAGC

To finally cap    On our tools    I’ll go over GIMP 2.6 real quick

All you need to know about GIMP 2.6    For pixel-perfect export

Non-animated images
1. Scale image
2. Resize image that’s a ratio of the original aspect ([128x128] x N, where N is a whole integer)

Notice how “none” is selected    For interpolation    I can’t stress this enough    Seriously    This will solve every single problem    With “fuzzy” images    If it’s for video footage    Of an awesome skateboarder    That’s fine    But for glitching    This will save you    From shitty quality

If you have a bunch of captured screenshots    And want to compile them    Into an animated image    W can do that too easily

For animated image files

1. Place your image file here (if already animated through AVI, and proceed to 2)
1a. Your image will flip from lowest to highest in that order
1b. If you need to make an edit, select layer, and shut all eyes above that layer
2. When finished, open all eyes, and “Save As”
3. Enter the file name withextension (for now, “basic done.gif”)
4. Save as an animation (make it looped or not after you’ve chosen)

And here we have it

Do note again    That all GIFs exported    Will be animated at 10 FPS    So even if you got every frame    In GIMP 2.6    It will still be at the same speed    As the one you made    Right off of MTAGC    Another program must be used    To bump the cap for this

Here’s some tips and tricks I use

+ start at $10, end at $1010, change range by $1000, click on auto, and see what happens; rinse and repeat until you hit the end of the game; doing this will not only eventually yield a “sweet spot” (mostly the graphic storage/placement), but allow you to see where and what is located for future reference
+ if you made a good corruption file, make a new one, just in case you want to ever go back to that iteration
+ you can hex edit anything, but image files and NES ROMs are the smallest, which will also mean the easiest to start off with; later you can move onto Playstation ISOs or MP3s/WAVs
+ for NES ROMs, I recommend Metroid, Super Mario Bros., Wrecking Crew, Balloon, basically any old Nintendo game; they’re the first, so they’re the quickest to dissect, and quickest to create some really bizarre glitches from not being ironed out
+ back all your shit up; seriously; I can tell you this from experience; NES roms are tiny as hell; most are only 128/256 kilobytes, and the biggest, only a megabyte (1024 kilobytes)

Quick answers to future questions

“I keep getting a CPU jam!”
Change the range/affected bytes    Not everything corrupted are graphics

“I keep getting the AVI conversion error!”
Hard reset and try again    Chances are it captured invalid file-coding    If it doesn’t work    Make a new file and change the action a bit

“It rendered 30 seconds of [a still image / nothing / something else]!”
Again    What we see    And the computer sees    Are two different things    Try screen capturing    As it saves based on    The current monitor display    Rather than the hexadecimals themselves

“When I put a hex edited image into GIMP 2.6, it only partially loads!”
GIMP 2.6 is fine    It’s just the image that’s broken    A quick fix is to    Open it in paint.exe    And just save    It’ll change the hexadecimals    Back to a displayable image    While retaining the result

“My hex edited image won’t show up!”
You probably borked it’s file-coding    Instead of the pixels and their placement    Reload and move further down the range

“Tumblr’s not allowing me to post my GIF!”
Animated GIF files are huge    Stick with around 400px - 600px    And nothing past 100 frames    Unless you’re feeling lucky punk

That should do it for ya    If you have any further questions    Hit me up

Looking forward to those glitches now

Happy trails pardner

anonymous asked:

do you know how to do that glitch effect? *struggles*

[ I most definitely doooo. I’ll show you how using the gif I use as the header(?) image of my blog! uvu

1. Draw your picture

2. DUPLICATE YOUR PICTURE AND THEN using a smudge tool, smudge random parts of your picture. This can be literally anywhere.

3. GO BACK TO THE FIRST LAYER AND DUPLICATE IT. Then, select the ‘Clipping’ box (or whatever it is that allows you to ONLY colour in what you have drawn and prevent you from drawing outside your image) and fill in your image with Yellow, for example..

Then, change the mode to ‘Add’ or ‘Multiply’, whichever you prefer and turn down the opacity a little. Next, using the lasso tool, carve out random sections of your image and scatter them all around the place (as shown on the picture above.) Move this image a little to the right.

4. DUPLICATE THIS LAYER and using the smudge tool, smudge random parts of your character once again.

5. DUPLICATE YOUR VERY FIRST LAYER ONCE AGAIN AND REPEAT THE PROCESS ON NO.3, except now change the colour and carve out different selections with the lasso tool. Move this image a little to the left.

6. Repeat the process on No.4.

And now you’re done!!! The finish glitch gif is shown below!

I hoped this helped!! And wasn’t confusing aa ;~;. ]

that cherik edit looks amazing!! would you mind sharing how you did that? cause i've been trying to find out how to do that effect for ages now and i just can't seem to find anything.

gosh, thank you! the effect looks like this: 

And the original post is here.

I’ll try my best to explain a) the old-tv flicker effect and b) the glitch effect. For the ghosting effect that is also in the gifset, there is a really good tutorial for it here

You will need intermediate gif-making skills and Ps Extended with Timeline feature for this.

(warning: glitch effect, white noise, flashing gifs under cut. Please be aware if you’re photosensitive!
