How do i make an 8 bit or a 16 bit circle in coreldraw?
« on: November 14, 2017, 09:27:11 AM »
How would i go about making a circle look like an 8 bit circle in coreldraw x5?

Or a 16 bit circle.

Im trying to get that retro look for a t shirt design.

8 bit and 16 bit generally reference color depth when talking graphics.
You want a lo-res looking circle I assume.
Make a small circle, convert it to a bitmap at lo-res, and increase size?
You can auto trace it after if you need vector.

I refered to 8 bit and 16 bit because of the "block" look to it....its the best way for me to describe what im wanting to achieve.

I'm confused.............are you sure you're not asking for a distressed circle?
Retro circles aren't necessarily pixelated circles, in my mind anyway.

It's all good, just making sure I understood the question.

Whatever Mark means, I'm sure that I saw the word "blocky" .
C'mon Mark, now you have at least three of us going!

Sounds like you just want to draw a circle and put a slight distress pattern over it. As one who worked in the retro days, we did clean work, the inks generally were not opaque enough, plus there was no undressing and flashing yet... LOL! let me change that to under-basing and flashing.

I just looked up what the resolution was for my first computer.

It ran an 8 bit display adapter.

256x192 pixels.

high res baby!
