The following images were generated with an edited modification of the paint preset we hand built yesterday. As you may recall, we used a MSG preset that generates a chaotic attractor image to build a MSG Live source brush paint preset. Today, we will work with Temporal Generators (TG) attached to the MSG preset’s editable parameters to build additional variability into the dynamic brush shape generated by the MSG Live source brush when painting.
If you haven’t read yesterday’s post (or you’ve forgotten what we covered), please read it before continuing. We’re going to do some mild hand editing of yesterday’s preset to attach additional temporal generators to individual editable parameters associated with the PickoverChaosGen processor in the MSG component of yesterday’s paint preset.
Modifying the MSG Preset for More Dynamic Self-Animating Behavior
The 1st gallery image below shows how I hand edited the parameters associated with the PickoverChaosGen processor. We generated some slight dynamics in the painting process yesterday by using the Pen Orientation TG modulator along with a paint synthesizer editing trick to modulate the Angle of the chaotic attractor based on the Source Image Orientation. For today’s example, I wanted a much more dynamic and variable brush shape. So I attached 3 additional temporal generators to the A, C, and Angle Z parameters.
