Create an 80's vibe pixel type motion graphics in Blender


dj writes:

In my latest tutorial I am showing the making of a short motion graphics in a retro 80's style.

Pixelating the font with remesh/wireframe/build modifiers combo. Also some uv-s, nodes and compositing involved. All to get you back to the 8-bit era mood!

PS. (you don't need a vintage cassette recorder, just a pc with blender 2.79 installed)

    • Enable "Backdrop" in the node editor next to "Use Nodes" and add a Viewer Node to the node of which you want to view the effect or to the last node to see the final result. Basically add a Viewer Node and use it as the Composite Node.
