Starscape logo and layer questions
I am learning to rip apart the layers of existing pix. If you go to create new, logos, starscape, and then render an image you will see the default image has 4 layers. So two questions.

1. Is there a way to see what filters and/or features make up each layer? Eg. What filters were applied to a particular layer.....metallic, comic, etc


2. The starscape fonts seems to have a concrete, or cracked cement look to,them.... I cannot find a way to reproduce this affect in the lettering... Is it a filter, a affect...? Just can't seem to find it.

RE: Starscape logo and layer questions
Gimp is "open source" and th starscape-logo script is in
Code:
/usr/share/gimp/2.0/scripts/starscape-logo.scm
in Linux, and in windows, from memory:
Code:
c:/Program files/Gimp/share/gimp/2.0/scripts/starscape-logo.scm
These scripts are plain text files (you can load them in an editor), and are mostly sequences of calls to recognizable things, so even without specific programming knowledge you can get an idea of how things are done.

Actually, from the code:
- Get a selection on the text
- Create a layer, fill selection with the "Stone" pattern
- Use it as a bump map (Filters/Map/Bump map) against the text layer

You can also fill the bump map with Filters/Render/Lava and a white-to-black gradient.
