Waikiki Driveby

Scan tracker processing of a video sequence taken out the window of a moving car while driving in Waikiki at night.

Cuban Food

Another temporal view of a cuban restaurant in Waikiki. The Studio Artist temporal scan tracker processed a static video sequence to generate an image that encapsulates motion in the video sequence. Again, i used a vertical scan direction.

Cuban Food Dance

Dancing girl at cuban restaurant in Waikiki. Static video shot of dancing was processed with the Studio Artist temporal scan tracker, and then that temporal image was further processed with the vectorizer.

Path Start Regionization Test

Testing out some path start regionization features in the paint synthesizer.

Symmetry Trails

Abstract image generated from some interactive warp symmetry processing applied to some paint tests.

Autopaint 3

More experimentation with some new paint synthesizer features. Also using maximum saturation colorization in the paint preset.

Autopaint 2

More experimentation with some new paint synthesizer features used in a single auto-paint pass.

Wednesday, August 24, 2011


More experimentation with some new paint synthesizer features. Again, this is just one auto-paint pass.

Politics as Usual

This is actually just one paint synthesizer action paint pass. It's a simple paint preset, but using some new features for honing in detail.

Pastel Melt

Combination of a Studio Artist paint synthesizer and an image operation effect.

New Stitching Experiments

Working on some new code ideas for image stitching. This was generated from a series of frames taken from a video pan. The video is a 180 degree pan taken at the edge of the dock near Nico's and the fish market at Pier 38 in Honolulu harbor.

Portrait Abstraction

Combination of paint synthesizer and vectorizer to build the final effect.

Block Head Variation 2

Another experiment with path start regionization in combination with region fill as brush pen mode to build adaptive tiling vector paint effects. You need to run multiple passes with the same path start regionization paramters to build up the concentric vector fills.

Block Head Variation

Trying out some new ideas for generating adaptive tiling effects in the paint synthesizer using vector paint. I'm using region fill as brush pen mode along with path start regionization to build adaptively tiled vector shapes.

New Vectorizer Coloring Options

Added some new coloring options to the Vectorizer.

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

New Dual Fixed Color Fill

I added a new dual fixed color fill option to the anti-alias solid brush type. This is a paint synthesizer vector paint option.

DualMode Moving Canvas Experiment 2

Another DualMode Paint experiment, this time dribbling paint onto a rotating canvas.

Sunday, August 14, 2011

DualMode Moving Canvas Experiment

Trying out some new ideas for DualMode Paint features. This effect simulates dribbling paint onto a moving self-tiling canvas.

Saturday, August 13, 2011

Dr Evil 3

Made this while fooling around during some testing of new Studio artist paint synthesizer features.

Friday, August 12, 2011

Interacting Time Particles 2

Another experiment with generating paint paths from the interaction of swarming time particles. This examples are static frame images from a dynamic paint process, so you can generate interesting abstract paint animations from this kind of effect.

Thursday, August 11, 2011

Interacting Time Particles

Trying out some new experiments where paint paths are generated by the interaction of moving time particles.

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Shape Face

Adding some new dual fill shape technique options to the vectorizer.

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

Path Start Regionization Sketch

Playing around with using path start regionization in the paint synthesizer to build sketch effects. I'm using region skeletons and region bounding boxes to build the sketch paths.

Monday, August 8, 2011

Inset Tiling Experiment

Playing around with some vector paint tiling ideas in the paint synthesizer.

Sunday, August 7, 2011

MSG Pattern Modulation 2

The backing of this is another example of spatially modulated MSG patterning, using some new MSG features. Some additional vectorizer outline technique overlay is then added to finish off the effect.

Saturday, August 6, 2011

MSG Pattern Modulation

Interesting MSG based source image processing effect generated while playing around with some new MSG features. The tiling patterns are spatially modulated based on the source image.

Friday, August 5, 2011

MSG Pattern Overlays

Experimenting with some new MSG features in the Evolution Editor.

Thursday, August 4, 2011

Rectangle Rendition

Working on some new Vectorizer features for intelligently abstracting regions.

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Intelligent Paint Strokes 4

More experiments with intelligent paint stroke layout features in the paint synthesizer.

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

Star Gate

More MSG experiments with directed evolution of spatially modulated patterning effects.

Monday, August 1, 2011

Recto-Linear Man 2

Another experiment with spatially modulated MSG processing to build spatially variant abstraction effects.
