Cylinder Issue here: How to blend the line of cylinder?
on Nov 17, 2011 at 3:59:32 am

When I turn a image into cylinder, problem I have is that the line of cylinder doesnt blend but show the line of image... What is the best way to blend it? It happens when I rotate the cylinder like the hurricane.

Help me! :-) Post your idea please. It will be helpful. The best I could think is to make it two layers and opacify each other to hide the image line of cylinder?

If you bring your graphic into Photoshop, you can use the Offset filter to shift it by 50%. This will allow the image to wrap back around, moving the seam away from the edges to the center of the image where you can see it.

Paint out the seam, then offset by 50% again.

It is good idea but I also put the noise effect to cylinder... basically noise effect is the image I use... Hmm..

When it comes to photoshop, it is good when image is still where I can make a seam blending.

But for this situation, photoshop is not a solution, right?

Understood.

If you're using animated noise, you can do the following in AE to make that edge seamless:

Duplicate your noise layer.
On the top layer, add a mask, pull in the sides, and feather them in away from the left and right edges.
On the bottom layer, add the Offset effect and adjust the Shift Center To either the left or right edge.

If you hide the top layer, you'll see that you've pulled the seam into the center, and that the edges are now seamless. The top layer hides the center seam.
