The real power of Studio Artist is that it’s an extremely user configurable environment for building custom visual effects. In today’s post, we’ll take a look at using the paint synthesizer to build smart halftone screens, which can then be used in a PASeq to build custom halftone screening effects.
The second AutoPaint action step is using the paint synthesizer to build a custom halftone screen in thecanvas. The halftone screen is smart, in that it’s build taking into account features of the source image (like local spatial orientation).
The image gallery below shows off how the paint synthesizer is configured to generate a custom halftone screen. Note that the Paint Fill Setup control panel is configured to paint using the Brush Image.
