Paint Strategy

Working on some new paint action sequence (PASeq) presets for auto-painting in Studio Artist. This one is using some new Paint Brush Load features that let you combine multiple PBL techniques in a single paint preset. A very cool new feature.

I'm also using an interesting technique for setting up the Blanking buffer in the paint synthesizer prior to starting painting, using the Smart Contrast ip op. This helps build structure in the first large brush rough paint pass. Subsequent paint passes alternate low and high Paint Color Source luminance offsets to emphasis detail. Feature detection is then used to focus fine detail painting.
