Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
For this tutorial, I’m using a
tube by Rene Kunert
The tube is now FTU &
available here.

Plugins: Richard Rosenman Scanlines

Open a 600x250 new image.
Open up your tube of choice.

Fill the new image with black
or a dark color of choice.

Add a new raster layer
& fill with a 2nd color of choice
from your tube.

Apply Forum Mask Grunge
to the 2nd fill layer.
Merge group.

Select a font tool and
a font of choice.
I used a second color from
the tube for my font color.

Above the mask,
type out words of choice.
Position as wanted along the mask

Duplicate the word layer once.
Move down to the bottom of
the tag.
Merge the two word layers together.

Before we animate,
add copyright info & name
to the tag.

Now back on the masked layer,
open the scanlines plugin.
