In any case, Yodaman, did you listen to a word that we said?

Yes. I shined a flashlight on it and did it the same way I did the first one.

Read the thread again.  You got more advice than just lighting it with a flashlight.

List everything you want me to do with this. I can't make complete sense out of people just randomly making comments about this.

Either go the black-and-white route and crush your blacks and up your highlights, or figure some other way.

Anyway, uh, it shouldn't be that hard to do what funk-e said, and then tint the entire picture slightly bluish. Also, make it dark around the edges. And light the shot with a flashlight.

 No, I'd recommend changing his entire costume into bright white colours just for that shot. Infrared cannot pick up shadows.

---

 Indeed. Something would be black only if it gave out absolutely no heat. And infrared can't pick up color, either.

---

 So, prolly desaturating would help it.

Uh, also, that contrast is a little heavy. You might want to lower the contrast, but like I said, light it with a flashlight.

Really, what is so difficult about reading?

If this isn't what you're talking about then tell me how to do everything you're asking me to do because I'm really confused right now.

Can you tell me what's confusing you, and why?

..But you've already been given lots of advice, man.  Take it, and run on your own a little.  I just quoted for you, in a neat little box, the best suggestions in the thread.

Take a look at this page at NASA for an example of the kind of look you might want to shoot for (you can click on the image for a higher-resolution version).  Also, read their explanation of how IR images work.

They say, "[t]he coldest surfaces in the infrared image are blue/black while the hottest ones are yellow/white. "  That's the key you need to focus on.  Figure out what parts of the image are the hottest, what parts are the coolest, and color-code them in some way that looks good to you.  The brain and heart are probably the hottest areas.  Body parts are probably also pretty warm.  Metal pieces are probably the coolest.  Beyond that general rule, just go with what looks best.

Yes, none of the original color should be in an infrared image.

But I'm not exactly going for a perfect 'infra-red'- just a sort of nightvision type thing that works.

Then just do the dark around the edges and the green circle in the middle thingee with some sort of grain.  That would look good for what your doing-

Well, you have to ask yourself:  How does this nightvision work?  You can build the effect from there.

Yoda, you know that nightvision beams forward in a circle pattern on the character, therefore then only the circle would get it, then the rest would remain dark.
