  • Optical Illusions That Move - How to do it *VERTIGO WARNING*

    Can anyone please tell me where I can learn to make images that move (not GIF images)...Optical Illusions. Images that trick the eye that it is actually moving.

    I have a picture similar to what I would like to achieve.

    Tools I have in my "lunchbox": Adobe PhotoShop, Illustrator...

    The effect is caused by the difference between the light and dark sides of the objects, which are laid out in a consistent pattern. In your example, the darker gradient side is shifted 45 degrees for each ball around the circle. Start the next grouping from a different spot on the axis and you get your motion effect.

    A quick google search came up with this tutorial.

    Same idea. This guy just made elipses with a white side and a black side, rather than the gradients in your example, and laid them out in a consistent grid pattern instead of groups of circles.

      This is your brain dealing with the optical illusion. They taught us that in school, during color theory. It's called color vibration. You can learn to control that vibration.

          In my area of the country, there are an abundance of this.

          Believe me, despite over 12 years of agency experience and 15 years being a ''freelancer'', even I have encountered this bias. Especially...

          I wouldn't say it means nothing. If it's coupled with all the other things, like internships, actual employment and education, it definitely counts for something.

          Looks like I'm going to be the oddball here and say that I rarely need any math beyond basic arithmetic to do my job. The most math-intensive, graphic design thing I run into is figuring percentages,...

          Ah perhaps fetch is a better term: there is a progress bar at the bottom and it says Dowloading ## of ##### (and since I'm an email hoarder, the of # is around 25,000). My concern is when I used Outlook...
