Today’s post will look at how to generate dynamic paint effects using the Particle Pen Mode in the paint synthesizer. You can use this kind of dynamic painting to very quickly build interesting abstract painted imagery with a tremendous amount of internal detail. Or you can use movie stream output to create dynamic paint animation movie files.
The key to generating the particular style of dynamic paint effects discussed in today’s post is the paint synthesizer’s Particle Pen Mode, which paints with a set of dynamic real time paint particles. The Pen Mode is set in the Editor control panel called Pen Mode (as shown below). The particular paint preset we are working with today is available in the Assisted or Auto : Magic Spiros category and is called A MagicSpiral 07b, which has many different examples of dynamic particle pen based paint effects.
