The Paint Action Sequence Mode or (PASeq)

The Paint Action Sequence Mode (PASeq) is where you can create scripts.  You can combine any of the other operation mode presets and also any assisted or manual painting moves you make to create complete works.  You can then save those scripts as presets to be used on other source images.  The PASeq is also used for roto-scoping and video effects for outputting to a movie.
