Eye Candy Gold Video

By | |Tutorials, Eye Candy|

Here is a new video about gold in Eye Candy 7. I demonstrate techniques for making gold using several different effects from shiny gold chrome to old rusty gold.

As mentioned in the video, here is a custom settings file for the Chrome effect in Eye Candy. Please right click this link and choose “Save Link As”.

You will need Eye Candy 7 installed for it to work. You can download and use Eye Candy in trial mode if you don’t own it.

Save the preset to your desktop first. In most browsers, right-click the link and choose Save As. That should give you a file with the extension .f1s.

Double-click the .f1s file to install and the next time you run Eye Candy 7, you should see Gold Foil in the User Settings list of the Chrome effect.

    The link for the custom settings file appears to be broken – when clicked all I see is a bunch of code!

      Thank you for bringing this to our attention. You can right click on the link and choose “Save Link As”. That will save it as the .f1s file. Once it downloads, you can double click on it to install.
