Today’s post continues our examination of Rutt Etra style processing effects. As we mentioned yesterday, the Rutt Etra video synthesizer was an influential early analog video synthesizer built in the 70s. The Rutt Etra style is based on modulating video scan lines, so you can think of it as a kind of displacement mapping effect.…Details
The Rutt Etra analog video synthesizer was invented in the 70’s and was used by many early analog video artist pioneers. There are several different approaches you can take within Studio Artist to construct effects that simulate the look of Rutt-Etra video processing. In today’s post we’ll explore how to work with the paint synthesizer…Details
THIS IS AN ARCHIVED POST (Please see the Mosaic Training videos) In yesterday’s post we showed how to build a masked photo mosaic effect from a movie brush that contains an embedded alpha channel. Today we will show how we built the masked movie brush used in yesterday’s post from a folder of alpha matted…Details
Today’s post will discuss how to create the movie brush photo mosaic effect shown above. The effect uses a movie brush with an embedded alpha channel that masks the objects in each individual movie frame. The effect is also using random paint nib positioning for the individual masked objects, as opposed to laying them down…Details
In yesterday’s post we used 2 temporal generators to build a procedural shape animation from a MSG preset. The preset was based on the 1C Abstract5 processor. Today we use 3 different stacked instances of this processor in a single MSG preset with 3 temporal generators to build a more complex time varying shape animation.
