MSG Recursive IO Connections
This procedural art image generated in Studio Artist 4 by directed evolution of MSG processors shows a characteristic visual appearance caused by recursive IO connections when using warp processors. The bands happen because the MSG processors associated with the warp thread to multiple processors. 8 processors in the case of the above image. With 2 or no multiple processors the appearance would be totally different. And of course if you used 3 temporary output buffers as opposed to the same image streams for input and output (what i mean by recursive in this case)the appearance would be very different as well.
