Today’s post discusses how to use the Translate interactive warp to build mirror symmetry effects.
Today’s post shows how to build a simple color wave abstraction of the source image. The effect combines a MSG preset that generates a series of colored bands with an interactive warp option that warps the colored bands based on the source image.
Interactive warp operation mode lets you dynamically generate a wide variety of different warp effects in real time based on your mouse movement in the Studio Artist canvas. Although there are not currently warp presets, you can save individual warp operations in a PASeq if you want to save them for later use as pre-built…Details
This post continues a series we started yesterday on adding representational features from a source image into a very abstract canvas. This post starts with a flat random noise texture field and shows how you can use a modulated interactive warp to pull source features out of a totally random noise canvas.Details
Today’s post will focus on some tricks you can use to generate interesting abstractions using the Block Abstraction image operation as a starting point .
I was working with a paint action sequence (PASeq) that builds generative paint animation when run over time. I wanted to add a symmetry warp effect to the animation. In doing so I ran into an interesting case where just adding the warp effect to my existing PASeq worked fine for a single frame but…Details
The following two images are frame captures from 2 different generative paint animation. The paint animations are based on the same paint action sequence (PASeq) that combines some image operations, interactive warps, and auto painting time particles to build a wispy abstract paint animation. The first animation frame capture is using an interactive warp PushPull…Details
We’ve been talking about different approaches to building symmetry in our recent posts. I wanted to conclude the discussions by taking a look at a piece I recently put together. We’ll take an overview look at how the above image was constructed in this post.
We’ve discussed building symmetry effects in the last 2 posts using a simple MSG preset. This post shows off a different approach to building symmetry effects using interactive Translate warps.
We’ve recently been discussing different approaches to building kaleidoscopic effects in Studio Artist. Two days ago we discussed symmetry vs breaking symmetry, and how breaking symmetry can lead to more organic looking effects that still maintain some of the perceptual trigger aspects introduced by symmetry in visual imagery. Today’s post will continue this discussion by…Details
Studio Artist provides a wide range of different and unique kaleidoscopic effects that extend beyond the limited range of typical kaleidoscopic effects seen in other digital effects programs. The image above shows off an inverse kaleidoscopic effect (something unique to Studio Artist). This post will take a look at some of the other kaleidoscopic effects…Details
The screen shot below shows 2 different approaches you can take to build kaleidoscopic effects in Studio Artist 4. The Interactive Warp operation mode provides a large number of different Kaleidoscopic effects that can be interactively manipulated in real time. The MSG operation mode also provides a vast range of different kaleidoscopic preset effects as…Details
