Vector Path Start Regionization

Studio Artist paint synthesizer experiment using path start regionization and a vector paint preset. I'm using the re-indexing feature for the generated regions so that the large regions paint in first, followed by progressively smaller regions.

Geodesic Displacement Melt

Still more experiments in Studio Artist 4 using the Geodesic Displacement image operation effect. I'm working with loop action to build up the progressive adaptive melt effect.

Geodesic Displacement Experiment

Another experiment with loop action recursive processing using the Studio Artist Geodesic Displacement image operation effect.

Geodesic Displacement Melt

Working on some new features for the Geodesic Displacement image operation effect in Studio Artist 4. The key to this particular effect is to run the ip op in loop action to build up the progressive adaptive melt effect.

Mass Abstractor Woodcut

Working on some new features for the Studio Artist Mass Abstractor ip op.

Cartoon Style

I keep finding new ways to generate cartoon style effect using different Studio Artist features. This is a combo of combining the watershed regionize and smooth ip ops to build the overall effect.

Mass Abstractor

Working on some new features for the mass abstractor effect.

Line Screen

Adding some new features to the Line Screen image operation processing effect in Studio Artist.

Time Square

Working on some new features for the Smooth image operation effect in Studio Artist.

Tumble Dance

Generated by processing a movie with a paint action sequence.

The original PASeq was actually designed to matte out the dancer, but i forgot to turn on Mask Playback for the PASeq, which lead to this interesting accumulative effect. Interesting example of a mistake becoming a more interesting outcome than the original intention.

Another Studio Artist experiment with a textured oil paint simulation built as a paint action sequence.

Thursday, October 13, 2011


Still more work with different textured oil paint simulation built using Studio Artist paint action sequences. Combo of paint synthesizer and image operation effects.

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Bench Press

More work with textured oil paint simulations (built as Studio Artist paint action sequences).

Tuesday, October 11, 2011


Working on some oil paint simulation paint action sequences.

Graffiti Stack Filter Experiments 2

Another experiment using Studio Artist's temporal image operation effects to process a series of graffiti images via 'stack filtering'.

Sunday, October 9, 2011

Graffiti Stack Filter Experiment

Experiment with stack filtering using Studio Artist 4 and a graffiti movie brush. Stack filtering is a term used for processing a 'stack' of different images using temporal image processing effects. The 'stack' of images is encoded in a movie file.

Gallery Show Abstraction

Abstract painting generated during some Studio Artist gallery show testing.

Candidate Eats a Baby

Photo Collage generated with movie brush and the Studio Artist 4 paint synthesizer.

Thursday, October 6, 2011

Candidates 4

Photo collage effect generated with a Studio Artist movie brush.

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Candidates 3

Photo mosaic source image i used for yesterday's oil painting effect. This was generated with a movie brush in combination with Studio Artist's path start regionization processing using the paint synthesizer. Plus a little bit of interactive warp processing.

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

Candidates 2

Combination of several paint synthesizer passes and some interactive warp symmetry processing in Studio Artist 4.

Monday, October 3, 2011


Another experiment with automatic photo collage using graffiti movie brushes in Studio Artist 4.

Sunday, October 2, 2011

Candidate 2

Another automatic photo collage experiment using a graffiti movie brush in Studio Artist.

Saturday, October 1, 2011


Trying out some new approaches with Studio Artist movie brushes for automatic photo collage generation.
