DualMode Paint Animation
A still frame from a Studio Artist 4 dualmode paint animation i was working on recently. I tried extending some of LiveArt's recent animation ideas involving the use of time particles with geometric symmetry warping, but modified the idea to use symmetry breaking via the MSG geometric transformation processors that incorporate modulation. Some really interesting imagery came out of these experiments after some darwinian optimization of the overall process. For me the 3 part notion of copy - modify -select via cycles of evolutionary optimization seems like a natural way to work.
