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
Today’s post will take a detailed look at a MSG based animation created by one of our staff. Keep in mind that she was able to create this finished animation a few hours after being shown how to add temporal generators to MSG processor editable parameters to create self animating effects. I think this is…Details
The image below was generated from a very simple MSG preset. We’ll take a look at how it was constructed in this post. Tomorrow’s post will use multiple instances of this simple effect to build a very visually interesting abstract animation.
