Please can someone help me out. Really need it.

Ok, since you are in V4, we will ignore all of the fabulous V5 features one could use for this.

Goto Bezier Operation Mode. Make sure you are in the Editor. Set the main Bezier Editor control panel to Bezier Draw.

Set the DrawType to LineTo Region.

Then draw out your manual region using a series of straight lines. To start a new line segment in the shape, while you are drawing the line using the mouse or pen, press the command key to end the previous straight segment and start a new one.  Don't lift the mouse or pen until you finish drawing the entire region.

When you mouse up at the end of drawing, it automatically finishes off the region with a straight line from the start point to the end point of the bezier path you just created. So it's now a bezier region in the Bezier Path Frame for the current layer.

Switch the operation mode to the Paint Synthesizer. Select an appropriate preset to draw your regions. Then use the Path : paint Paths : Full Layer menu command to automatically paint in all of the shapes you made while in Bezier operation mode that are stored in the current layer's bezier path frame.

If you need more help, point out what you are having a problem with and i'll go into more detail.

Hi John,

Please thanks for the reply.Please I can't see the PChain, Bus and the other tab list in the msg advanced editor. Please could you help me out.

Again please is there a way to have a collection of images (not built from msg presets but your own images) within the msg evolver and set up the paint synthesizer to use these images as brushes for pain

Please does v4  movie brush indexing uses the whole movie frame of brush or just a localised area that best suits the region its filling or painting.

Finally can you explain msg database. The information on msg contained in the user guide is very technical. Please is there a video that explains the msg evolver in detail.

Thanks

If you are on windows, it's possible to pull the contents of the msg advanced editor list display all the way to the right, hiding it from view. It's easy to fix, just mouse down in the far right side of the palette where there is a vertical splitter control, and then pull it to the left. The contents should pop into view. Then mouse up.

You can't load a set of images directly into msg presets. 

You could use msg processing in a paint preset, and run the current source brush into the msg processing there. 

V4 movie indexing for things like rgb coloring does use the entire contents of the brush image.

here's a tip onevolving and editing msg presets.

there are also a ton of msg related articles in our blog.

There is a msg tutorial video in our training videos (use the msg filter at the top to filter the listed videos to the tip topic).

Please how can this be achieved with v5. Thanks.

"Yeah, i'm not having any luck with that. if you have a 3.5 around that still runs on your system, you could try importing it and then saving it. Would probably fix it."

"Here it is. Answer will be greatly appreciated! There are too many penlines inside the painted areas. I would prefer just the edge outline in pen."
