Sniper Scope Simulation !
Posted: 18 Aug 2005 06:05 AM
I'm having a lot of fun with a sniper sight overlay. This is a great
effect to use on your nearest and dearest (all done in the best
possible taste of course !)

Here's a videoexample. More details + the PNG image overlay can be found on
my blog here

The PNG link on my blog is wrong - I'll fix that now.

Thanks DLK.

The blog was put together hastily on the spur of the moment thanks to Googles Blogger service. I'm trying to get to grips with the graphics software I'm using at the moment for other projects, so it's a useful exercise at the moment to experiment, play around with the tools, and create the images. It's easy to publish and free to do - so I'm happy to continue for as long as my attention span and time allows.

Great stuff Al...

Is it OK for me to add a link to your site? I was wondering what the "Please do not offer these images for download elsewhere" sentence means.

Maybe a good link from our new developing 'Persian Page'.

Thanks for thumbs up papajohn.


I feel a bit squirmish as I'd already linked to your site (and a few others) without requesting permission... Hope you don't mind :-)...A link would of course be very cool.

I've removed the line you mention. I published the blog without any thought of a plan (I've just realised that I don't even have any contact info) and just roughly quoted the kind of thing I often read on other sites. The images are free to use without restriction.

Hi Al

I am also impressed by your blog site... hope you keep expanding it.

There should be no shame in trying to protect your images and other artistic creations... Those images are copyright to you by default. However thanks for allowing others to use them without restrictions.

Thanks Al... for starters I added a link to the Online > Tutorials and References page of my site, with a note on the What's New page... it might go beyond that as we flesh out The Persian page.

Yes I noticed this one a few days back and added it to a list of future references that I'd like to check with lol :).....the first chapter is finally "fleshed" out now as PapaJohn says (there's not only the video tutorial but a very extensive comprehensive guide to all the beginning procedures.) Though links to codes will be in further installments! At the moment I'm balancing high school so I had to take a break from boarding or site construction but I'm definetely not one to leave the xml beginners hanging on their "notepad" sheets ;). The page will develop and build in momentum but do not fear at the moment beginners its all there for you. So please come visit some time always happy to serve :)!

Need help with xml?
~Come visit The Persian Page~

Currently offline due to broadening my horizons at highschool :)!

I'm going over all my blog posts at the moment to try and organise and present the content beter.
I've updated the sniper overlay section with extra overlays and xml. Should be a lot clearer for anyone wishing to use the effects :-)

Here it is:

Download PIP+. You don't need to pay. Even after the 15-day trial period it will still work for the static sniper overlays like these.
