    I was wondering if I could make up a good-looking image of old news footage recorded on VHS tape in Photoshop, using a random VHS effect action group off the Internet and the least amount of effort:

    Red lines done with Pencil tool = instant 90s TV news graphics. I did use Saturation and Colour Balance adjustment layers afterwards, to make it look slightly less purple, and just a little bit of Motion Blur filter.

    Downscaling and upscaling it a few times makes it look like it came straight from the BBC website circa 1997. It also doesn't betray its PS filter origin as much as the original, in my opinion:

    Does it all look convincing?

    Looks really good! How did you get that little bit of static in the middle line? It looks pretty convincing

    In Soviet Russia, steel melts jet fuel.

    Displace filter + a static texture overlaid on top of it all some layer mask trickery I can't understand. It's all a part of the action group, though.
    The big static in the centre uses the following displacement map and the following filter settings, apparently.

    Based on that superior graphic, here's one I made:

    [​IMG]

    Essentially, the idea for the timeline is a successful Albany Plan of Union, leading to a somewhat British-dominated North America. This takes place in the Kingdom of Muskogee, which was formed by, in essence, a British filibuster and pro-Native American. He unionized most of the "Five Civilized Tribes" to form the Kingdom, which slowly became more despotic over time. By the 1980s, inspired by mass media, the citizens began protesting, which soon spiraled into the Sunshine Revolution (part of many so-called "Color Revolutions" of the 1980s and -90s). The following newsreel, from the American Broadcasting Company's Nightline slot, is from the third day of the Sunshine Revolution, this frame taking place at an inspection zone, haphazardly set up due to King William III's fears of armed rebellion. His fears were soon proven true, as the first shots of the Sunshine Revolution were shot at this very zone, the day after this newsreel.

    Possibly related to that Redsticks graphic I posted a few pages ago? But one thing is for sure...

    Is this a TL where Soviet Russia become authoritarian capitalist, like Deng's China?

    Title for a planned book set in my universe. I haven't decided where it should be set, whether it would be Africa, America, or Asia.

    Some graphics I made a while back that I just dug up - the first is from a Spartacist Germany timeline and the second two are from a Kaiserreich Commune of France game
