Two days ago we discussed how to build a paint preset that used an embedded MSG preset to build a MSG Brush Load paint nib, and then use the Evolution Editor to evolve new paint presets based on MSG on the fly during live painting. Today we will take a look at a different way to embed a MSG preset in side of a Paint Preset. We’ll look at building a MSG Live Source Brush paint preset from scratch.
There are 2 parts to building a MSG Live source brush paint preset from scratch. First, you either need to design or pick an appropriate MSG preset that will work well as a live source brush for painting. Second, you need to then build a paint preset that appropriately embeds the MSG preset you want to use as your MSG Live source brush for painting.
Building the MSG Preset
The gallery below shows off the simple MSG preset I hand built for this particular example. It’s based on a PickoverChaosGen processor. This processor generates a black and white image of a chaotic attractor, which is a kind of fractal.
