The following is a procedural abstract image generated with a simple MSG preset. We’ll take a look at how it was constructed in this post. The 2 MSG Abstract processors used in the preset are useful for creating semi-organic looking vector procedural imagery.
The following is a photo mosaic image created using a movie brush in the paint synthesizer. In a previous post here we described how to build a black and white pantograph effect. This post will discuss how to fill the white interior cells of a black and white pantograph image with photo mosaic blocks. This…Details
The following image is a frame capture from an animation generated by running a MSG preset in loop action into an open movie stream. The processing is recursive, which means that the output of the previous MSG processing cycle is used as the input to the current MSG processing cycle. This post extends on the…Details
We’ve recently discussed various uses for movie pixel indexed background textures. Today’s post points out a useful feature associated with all image or movie based background textures you may be unaware of, the ability to build symmetry operations into the tiling associated with any image or movie based background texture.
The following image is a single frame from an abstract animation generated from a self-animating MSG preset. This post will take a look at how the MSG preset was built, showing off the user of Temporal Generators (TG) to self-animate MSG parameters. We’ll also show off a few MSG Editing tricks you might find useful…Details
