Inspired by the new Tron clip released this week. Corey uses Vanishing Point to create a retro Tron effect based on the original 1980’s version.

    I never heard of Tron until I went to and that was a blog post. The movie looks awesome and I’ll have to watch the original. Great tutorial! 🙂

    Your tutorials are very nice and easy.

    Basically I am Web Developer (LAMP, WAMP…), Now I am learning Photoshop and Flash. I found your style of explaining and examples. 🙂

    Thanks for these videos.

    Ok, I REALLY wish I had you as a teacher in college (especially when the teacher we had to teach us Flash had never touched the program in her life.) I watch a few of your tutorials and I feel like I’m walking away with so much more than I got in 3 years of my graphic design course.

    Dude, insane. I’ve never used the vanishing point at all. I’ve heard about it but, I don’t know, just wasn’t into it I guess. After seeing this I am defiantly going to use it more often and play around with it. Thanks!

    love the tutorial, another amazingly helpful tut as usual. can anybody tell me how you can change the background of the photoshop programe, as in behind the window youre working in? i.e – the blue “smokey” image at the start of this video.

    This … is … so … awesome!!!
    It’s unbelivable, that you can do such cool things with just a few clicks in vanishing point!
    This tutorial really got me a “WOW”-Effect 😉

    @Chris Owen:

    You are actually just seeing the desktop image on a mac. This is how photoshop (or any program) is displayed on a mac, the desktop is equivalent to the “window” on Windows, and all of the components float. You’ll notice that the top taskbar changes to whatever program is in use.

    For Seth – had same issue of vanishing point being grayed out until I noticed that Coreys file was in RGB/8 and I had something else set up. When I changed my settings to RGB 8, vanishing point was available to use.
