I propose a group monthly challenge. Specifically each month an image with a cool/interesting/desired effect from outside SA with be posted and the challenge will be to come up with a Preset to Paseq which mimics that effect within SA

September 2011 challenge

anyone up for a new challenge? Has everyone tried all the old ones? Ok here is another video challenge.


Think MSG and multiple layers. Or perhaps you will find a completely different method. Only no laying on your back with a video camera and filming the sky. This one was created with no reference image.


Have fun

That one will be a challenge!!! I see vectorizing in my future
Comment by John Dalton Synthetik Software on February 14, 2010 at 8:44am
The vectorizer would probably be the way to go. I'd suggest breaking up the foreground objects from the background, vectorizing them separately with a region effect, and then compositing the results into a blurred vectorized background.

vectorizor is one solution, I do expect to see some posts with that as a method. However there are gradients in those vectors so it might still be a challenge to get it right. I also believe that as ever there are many ways to an end within SA. I happen to think that the Sketch Edge straighten lite imop to paths and a dualline paint might work very nicely too!

can i cheat?....... ;-)
Comment by liveart on February 18, 2010 at 6:06am
only one rule.. solution must be done entirely within SA.

I've only had Studio Artist a couple of days and I would die and go to heaven if I could get an image like that of friend of mine who's a keyboard player!  That is gorgeous!!
