"I think it might be helpful to have names or thumbnails of the paint patch memories visible in the Paint Preset Mixer rather than just numbers."

"You can use image folder brushes to replace movie brushes. You lose the convenience of it all being in a single movie file, but gain some advantages with ease of use and not restricting all of the images to be the same size. You are correct, you…"

macOS Catalina

As Catalina effectively kneecaps the 32-bit version of Studio Artist, I'm wondering what kind of workarounds people are planning on using? I'm trying to come up with some new workflow strategies that will allow me to use SA 64-bit in a similar manner to how I've used the 32-bit version.I know I can use the "rocess with PASeq->images to images menu command to work on video files if I first export them as an image sequence and then bring through Studio Artist. But I'm at a bit of a loss as how…See More

Profile Information

What version of Studio Artist do you own?
SA 4.0.5a3
How do you use Studio Artist?
I play and around and cook up different recipes to process my videos with. I've ventured into the realm of vlogging a bit (on hiatus right now) and want to meld interesting visuals with interesting content (or, at the least, try to make compelling content out of the mundane.)

I've mostly used SA as a processing/rotoscoping tool. I love "gunking" video up. I'd like to put it through its paces a little more and venture into more of its warping/animation applications.
About Me:
I've worked in the video/film industry for almost 10 years now (yikes! I used to think those guys knew everything when I was coming up and now I'm one of them! Very much don't know everything...)

I was one of the Producers that created videos for President Obama's campaign website and Youtube. Before that I worked as an assistant editor at a very busy full service production/animation company. (Never thought life could get busier than that!)

I'm an avid hill-roller, sometimes obnoxious Detroit Pistons fan and would love to spend a few months in Antarctica with my camera, my laptop and SA (and, of course, some warm, warm clothes!)

Studio Artist 4 on a macbook pro (2011)

I just got my new Macbook Pro last week and I'm so excited!  The way that I work with Studio Artist 4 has been dramatically enhanced and I'm enthralled.  Floating palettes make sense now!  I had to decide between the 27" iMac and the Macbook Pro and ultimately went with the MBP because it allowed me to work away from my desk.  

 

With an external monitor I can actually see and think about things that I literally couldn't see on my old 13" macbook.  I also was able to snag…

re your comment on "Sunny Tumbler"

Thanks Chris. I like the smoothness too. and, as i mentioned below, the 60fps version is super smooth, slippery and liquidy.

Hi Chris,

The clients were involved every step of the way - we shot the youth first, and got an approved audio cut from that.  Then we developed a storyboard, which we also got approved.  Then we did samples which were also approved. Still, they didn't really understand what we were doing - but trusted us anyway.  The reaction has been terrific from both client and audiences - usually involving tears, which I consider a win!
