MSG Color Edge Abstraction

Yesterday we shows how to use a spatially modulated MSG float sum area blur effect to process a source photo to fake a miniature view. Today we’ll take a look at a different float sum area filtering effect that generates a resolution independent color source edge abstraction.

Miniature Faking

Blurring parts of a photo simulates the shallow depth of field normally encountered in close up photography. You can take a normal photo and convert it into a faked miniature photo by subjecting it to this kind of processing. Today’s post will show how to build a MSG preset effect that generates a faked miniature…


Edge Drifter Interactive DualMode Paint

Today’s post will continue our recent discussion about working with interactive DualMode Paint presets to create dynamic real time abstract procedural animation effects. You can dynamically control the procedural animation by working with the mouse cursor positioning in the canvas while capturing the animation output into an open movie stream.
