I've been working through the MSG tutorials. Really enjoying this aspect of Studio Artist, but I haven't been able to figure out how to edit an msg preset that I saved.

After clicking through the evol editor until I develop a preset that I like. I export the msg preset, then import it expecting to be able to do further editing. but it just loads into the canvas. How to I load it into the evol editor or advanced msg editor? Is there a different way to save an msg preset?

Whatever is the current MSG preset is what is loaded into the MSG Advanced Editor (for advanced editing). So if you import a MSG preset , that then shows up in the MSG Advanced Editor. Or, if you click on a evolution editor preview cell, the MSG preset associated with that preview cell loads into the MSG advanced editor in addition to being rendered in the main canvas.


Here's a tip on Evolving and Editing MSG Presets.

Well, it is working perfectly now. Not sure why it was loading just to the canvas before. 

Thanks for the tip. One thing I notice, is that my msg adv editor does not have memory buttons as shown in the tip. I pasted a screen shot of my editor in this reply. I'm using version 4.04

just go to the studioartist preferences window and set the MSG Editor Memories to on:

Max - you are a genius. It's funny, because I used the preferences so change evolve to 4x4, but totally overlooked the MSG Editor Memories.

Could the SA Weekly Challenge make a comeback?

I'm new to SA and really having lot of fun drifting. I think SA is the best bit of digital painting kit out there and has so much potential! The Rotoscoping thing is amazing, but I'm only into static images and printing.I like the idea of developing styles, and think SA is prefect for this. There is so much, that it becomes a bit overwhelming, so I'm slowly trying to reduce the process and get to understand the Basic steps. I don't want to just keep producing one of images that are more guess…See More
