What does the user slider temporal generator parameter do (and what are some best practices for using it?)

I've noticed that some of the preset MSG patches have their processes set to user slider but I haven't been able to figure out how they work.

It's a feature from SA 3.5 that is still around in V4, but not currently used anymore. In SA 3.5, MSG was edited in the MSG Evolver program. You created and extensively MSG presets in MSG Evolver, but we wanted people to have the ability to do some limited adjustment when using them in SA. So the user slider TG modulators showed up as user sliders when the MSG presets were loaded into Studio Artist 3.5.

When we did the intel port with the SA V4 development, we didn't have the resources to fully rewrite  a complete new MSG Evolver application from scratch. So we incorporated MSG Editing directly into SA V4 with the built in MSG Advanced Editor and the MSG Evolution Editor.

We've talked about maybe resurrecting this user slider feature, so then you could make MSG presets with very limited user slider parameter editing that would live in the Editor control panel , for people who don't want to use the MSG Advanced Editor, or who find it too overwhelming.

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
