Yet another variation on the search for new woodcut or litho screen print effects. Generated in Studio Artist 4. Like everything in this design series, the effects were constrained to support vector file output.

This popped out during a recent Studio Artist 4 gallery show run. It's obviously using the shape vectorizer technique. But of course all gallery show output is unattended computer generative. I just stopped the run when i saw this and saved the result.

Another image from the series on looking into different approach to building woodcut or screen print effects. The constraint in this series was that the processing had to work as vector output. So everthing in this series can be printed at any resolution.

Trying out some new paint action sequences that work with path start regionization. I'm using several overlaid paint action steps with region fill as brush pen mode for the solid region fills. These kind of effects could be output as vector art if you wanted to.

More wood block print tests. Everything in this PASeq can be output as vector art, so the effects are resolution independent and scalable for printing. Using the new EPS output options for the anti-alais brush in the Studio Artist 4 paint synthesizer.

Vector art test for a black and white halftoning style based on modulating the size and positioning of vector text. Generated in Studio Artist 4. I'm adding some new EPS vector output functions today so you can do this easily with EPS output in addition to SVG output.

Yet another attempt at cooking up different approaches to creating woodblock print effects in Studio Artist 4. This started by using the new Mass Abstractor ip op followed by path start regionization in the pain synthesizer to build the block cut patterning.

The post yesterday inverted where the coloring was, as opposed to this initial PASeq approach to wood block printing, where the coloring is not associated with the line work but the spaces in between. I like this approach a little better it seems to capture the characteristics of that kind of print better in my opinion.
The cool thin about this particular approach to building the effect is that everything used generates vector output, so you can output eps, pdf, or svg vector output for resolution independent output for the effect.

More experiments with building some new path start regionization paint presets for the Studio Artist 4 paint synthesizer. This is using region fill as brush pen mode with rectangular regions and a linear gradient for the region processing effect.

Interesting paint synthesizer path start regionization approach using the region fill as brush pen mode for the region fills. As always, there's so much unexplored potential in the Studio Artist paint synthesizer as you start to dive into some hand editing. Although in this particular case i was using mingle evolution when i generated this preset, so you can do that kind of editing without understanding anything about how the paint synthesizer works.

A return to one of my favorites themes, a graffiti photo mosaic effect. Based on graffiti movie brushes taken with a digitial camera in south of market when i lived in San Francisco.
This was generated using paint synthesizer regionization in Studio Artist 4. I was working on a new Studio Artist tutorial on some editing techniques for paint regionizartion effects this weekend, and this fell out from some of the testing associated with the tutorial blog post.

Driving to the Castle and Cook hanger on Oahu in our big van to load the plane. Static image generated in Studio Artist 4 using the temporal scan tracker from a video pan taken out the front window of the moving van headed toward Lagoon Dr on the backside of the Honolulu airport.

Another shot of our plane at the Bradley Pacific Aviation field on Maui. This started with a walk around the front half of the plane while holding a video camera. One thousand frames were then processed with the temporal scan tracker to get the overview image.

Shot of the plane on the Castle and Cook airfield tarmac while we were loading up on Oahu for the trip to Maui. The original Hawaiian Airlines prop plane is in the hanger behind us. The usual temporal scan tracker processing from a video pan.

Our plane sitting on the runway at Bradley Pacific Aviation, which is on the other side of the Maui runway from the main terminal. My usual temporal processing with Studio Artist 4 from some video footage taken moving across the front of the plane.

Waiting to board the plane in Honolulu airport. I used the Studio Artist 4 temporal scan tracker to process some stationary video footage of people walking by outside the boarding area. It's processed with a vertical scan to accent the motion.

The Art Hotel is the place in Hobart. Awesome breakfast, way too much food but very good. The courtyard shown here is where you can eat, and is protected from the freezing weather outside. The panorama was generated from a Flip video 360 degree pan using the Studio Artist 4 temporal scan tracker. This place is a great example of how to restore and repurpose an old building for modern use while still retaining the character that makes it unique and cool.

Up we go at sunrise in southern Australia. The panorama was generated by doing a 360 pan with a Flip video camera. This one works better by configuring the Studio Artist 4 scan tracker for a slit scan. The video footage was shot as the hot air balloon we were in ascended.
