Hi John (and everyone), in older versions (3.x) of Studio Artist, if you saved out an MSG with a "user slider" set in a TG (temporal generator), the user slider would show up in the MSG control panel. I'm having some trouble finding where the user sliders for MSG temporal generators show up in SA4. Thanks!
hi thor: ...The initial release of Studio Artist 4 does not support the old 3.5 limited user slider functionality for MSG presets. That support may return in a future update...
I 've also had some troubles with my old 3.5-presets, that I saved with usersliders-TGs, and it took some time to find out, that I had to delete this settings to run them cleanly again in v4. (it was irritating, because there is still an option to select them in the msg advanced editor.)
I wish the "user sliders" back in a future version.
Max's reply covers the 2 version 4 issues with the user slider TG option. User sliders are not currently implemented in Studio Artist version 4. We hope to bring them back at some point in the Editor when in MSG operation mode. They were essential in 3.5, since detailed MSG editing was done in a separate application called MSG Evolver, and you needed them to have some user adjustable control over MSG presets in Studio Artist..
The other thing that MAX points out is that you should really turn off slider TG's in version 4 to avoid confusion, since they will change the parameter but there's not interface slider to work with, so you will see one thing in the preview display and another in the main canvas when you run the MSG effect.
