Death Mask

Title inspired by recent events in the news in this crazy world we all live in. The actual visual effect was created by mutating a PASeq factory preset. You can do this manually using the appropriate active link commands located in the integrated help browser inside of Studio Artist (actually located near the bottom of the PaintSynth Evolution help page), or via other Studio Artist features like gallery show.

We added lock options for PASeq action steps in V5 to aid in this process (allowing for selective mutation of specific action steps in a PAsSeq while keeping other ones consistent and unchanged). This can be a very useful feature, because sometimes you want certain action steps that might be associated with finishing touchups (like contrast boost or edge enhancement) to stay consistent while having the rest of the recorded action steps that build the main visual effect to freely mutate.
