The Paint Synthesizer – Image Operations – Vectorizer Modes in Studio Artist This video is going to concentrate on these three Studio Artist modes, The Paint Synthesizer, The Vectorizer and Image Operations. Let’s start with the Paint Synthesizer. This is the Painting Mode in Studio Artist and like all modes, The Paint Synthesizer has collections…Details
Gallery Show was originally conceived as a way for artists to build self-running dynamic art shows using Studio Artist that could be presented in art gallery settings. But we quickly realized that Gallery Show could be used to do much more. It’s a great way to automatically generate new abstract art and visual effects that…Details
Yesterday we talked about some creative ways to add stylized vectorizer abstraction effects into a digital photo. Today’s post continues that discussion, creating a kind of hyper enhanced abstraction of an original landscape photo.
There are lot’s of different approaches you can take to mix vectorizer effects into a natural image. For this particular effect, I wanted to break up the smooth gradients in the original landscape photo by adding in a stylized vectorizer abstraction of the original photo. Rather than just overlay the vectorizer effect on top of…Details
Today’s post will show off how to combine the Line Screen Regionize image operation with the Vectorizer to create a vector color line screen effect.
Today’s post shows how to configure the vectorizer to generate a close packed circle representation of an image.
Today’s post shows how to combine together an image operation effect and the Vectorizer to create a stylized black and white edge effect. We’ll be using the Vectorizer’s Flat Input Technique, which allows you to take a flat color image generated by a raster image processing effect and convert it into a vector representation.
Yesterday we showed how to use the Vectorizer to generate flat colored regions that were then used to position paint synthesizer text brush word positioning. Today we’ll show an approach to use the Vectorizer to build a region effect abstracted flat color source representation that the paint synthesizer will then convert into a photo mosaic…Details
Today’s post continues our exploration of different paint synthesizer text brush effects. Today, we’ll use a vectorizer rendition of the source image to automatically position the painting of text brush regions based on the size and positioning of the individual flat color vectorizer generated regions.
The conventional approach to using Studio Artist is to build up an effect in one or more more raster layers in the main Studio Artist canvas. And then to output the raster canvas view as a raster image file output. However, some Studio Artist effects can also be output as vector files. If the particular…Details
Yesterday’s post showed how to use the Vectorizer to convert a flat color region line screen image processing effect into a smooth anti-aliased vector output effect. In today’s post we will show how to use the Vectorizer to extend the same line screen effect generated in yesterday’s post, adding additional abstraction to the final…Details
This post will discuss how to use the Line Screen Regionize image operation effect to create a stylized line screen rendering of the source image. We will then use the Vectorizer to convert the raster line screen image processing effects into a vector effect. Vector effects have smooth anti-aliased edges, and can also be…Details
Adding some sort of representational component to an extreme abstracted image can often be a useful way to anchor the abstracted image back to it’s original source in the viewer’s mind. This post will show off how to use the Vectorizer Outline Technique to add source features into an abstracted canvas via an overlay.Details
This post will discuss how to use multiple applications of the Vectorizer outline technique to build a different kind of stylized abstraction effect. We’ll be using the Fixed Contour Outline Type, but you could use a similar approach with any of the Outline Type options.Details
Today’s post looks at the details associated with building a multi-pass vectorizer overlay source image abstraction effect.
Today’s post continues where we left off with yesterday’s post. We show how to use the Vectorizer to overlay some black source feature outlining on top of a very abstract irregular photo mosaic effect we constructed in yesterday’s post. The source feature outline overlay can help anchor the abstract photo mosaic image, making it more…Details
The last 2 day’s posts have covered working with photo mosaic effects that tile in a regular grid pattern and allow for addition of non-overlapping sub blocks within the tiling mosaic to add additional detail. At the end of yesterday’s post we briefly mentioned that you could use the Vectorizer to define the region structure…Details
We’re returning to the MSG effect we discussed 2 days ago, which generates a Hilbert space filling curve adaptive halftone effect with built in colorization. The MSG effect itself generates raster image output. In today’s post we will show how you can convert this effect into one that generates vector output, which allows for resolution…Details
Studio Artist has a vectorizer Shape Type option that can fill with different Truchet patternings. This post will take a look at how to use the new Truchet Shape Type options. You can find Truchet Presets by choosing the Vectorizer mode and searching for Truchet. There are also Truchet presets in the Paint Synthesizer that…Details
The following image is a combination of a vectorizer abstraction preset with an added smart blur effects masked so that it only blurs at the edges of the image. This can be used as a technique to focus the viewer’s attention on the center of the image, and also to create a sense of…Details
