Light Bending...

Recommended Posts

Hey. I''m making a logo, right now its just got text repeated. I want to add a light bending effect (that inlarges and bends the image behind the ''mask''), but i''d also like to do this in the shape of the letter ''K''. I''m using Paint Shop Pro 5, but i don''t think that does anything that complex. Does any one know of any programs that could help me do this? Preferbly free ones. I have done a search on google but i could not fim anything. Also please note I do not mean Lens Flare effect (some people got confused about that when i asked them) Thanks, -J

other than hand drawing it, you could use a 3D app. Model your ''K'' and use a volumetric light on it. Be sure there is some kind of backdrop to catch the shadow.
That would make the proper shadow behind it and depending on where your light is, the more or less ''bending'' you''ll get.
Is that what you''re after?
