Studio Artist's Vectorizer automatically converts a raster image into a resolution independent vector visual effect. Go mild to wild! Adjustable settings let you tweak an existing preset effect or build a new one from scratch. The Paint Synthesizer can also be configured to produce a wide range of vector paint styles. Output vector effects as eps or svg vector files for resolution independent printing.
Unlimited keyframe Paint Animation and Video Effects
Every editable parameter in Studio Artist can be keyframe animated over time creating an unlimited range of dynamic video effects. This includes paint strokes, both manual and automatic, as well as the many image processing, texture synthesis, vectorizer, warp, and selection tools. Design keyframed vector based warps, morphs, or video processing effects.
Much of the old MSG Evolver modular image processing editing capabilities are now accessible directly in version 4 via the new MSG Advanced Editor and MSG Evolution palettes. You can use directed evolution to generate an infinite variety of different abstract procedural art images as well as image and video processing effects without delving into the technical aspects of MSG editing. There are now over 500 MSG processors available that can be combined together for constructing custom modular image processing effects. MSG presets can also be used to expand the Paint Synthesizer's capabilities through the use of MSG source brushes, brush load processing, path start, and path shape generators.
