How to achieve this effect

I'm trying to get an MSG  preset effect on a source (a portrait) to fade out from full on processing to no effect at all over 10 - 15 seconds.  I tried key framing the fade amount in the PASEQ window from 100% Mix to 0% Mix over 300 frames but at frame 300 I do not see the unprocessed source. Can anyone tell me how to create this effect? Full on MSG processing gradually fading to no processing on the source at frame 300 (or maybe 450). I've attached a PASEQ preset but it doesn't work the way I…See More

"OK - made the changes in the timing and circle/path size and much improved, though the frames are still much darker under the 4K canvas - cannot think of a specific "brightness" control without some post processing (anything come to mind?)…"

"The first editable parameter in the DualMode Paint Editor is Timing. I had to make it much bigger to slow down the time before the dual op runs. so that more paint would draw before it was run. The paint is drawing very fine vector lines. So as the…"

"OK, thanks, John, but the images themselves also look very different at 4K - I get those very thin lines that look like scratches at 4 K that I do not see at HD, and the canvas itself is much darker for all the frames at 4K. And where are you…"

"It depends on what specific processors are used in the MSG preset. Some MSG effects are resolution independent. But others are not. So it has to be evaluated on a preset by preset basis. The single 3CKaleido processor in that dual mode preset should…"

Tutorial on matching canvas sizes output

I have numerous MSG presets wherein the output on different size canvases is very different. One recently (an MSG preset inside a Dual Mode preset) had the imagery I wanted when using an HD size canvas, but at 4K, it was totally different. Is there some way to generalize matching the output of a preset at different canvas sizes, or is that a preset by preset issue?  The preset in question is attached - the 4K render takes almost a minute to begin to appear on my screen ( 2016 iMac).See More

hi dennis,
i have just read your bio, and i wonder if you could advise me?
i am looking for some generative music software. i have tried the 'ixi' software in which you just drop a folder of wav/aiff samples into it and see what it does with them. But there is no parameter control (although that can prove more interesting sometimes!)..Do you know of anything similiar, that just messes with audio.

Hey Mark. Do you happen to own Native Instruments Reaktor? That would be all you need cause there are a ton of free Reaktor Ensembles for this kind of thing in the NI user library. Probably the same is true for Max/MSP & Pluggo at Cycling '74, and those have free runtime hosts. Also at Cycling '74, you can find M2.6, which is generative (and not free), but only for MIDI as I recall.

Several others come to mind:

AnalogBox from Andy Turner ( lets you create
"Jambots" and has a lot of examples.

Heizenbox ( for loop-based
granular processing.

Kenneth Adams' Musigenesis (

Musolomo from Airy Andre (

TimeToy Pro Max/MSP (

Günter Hager's X-Wheel of Fortune (

Hope some of that stuff will work out.

thanks for taking a look at Manifold... we applied many different custom and preset PAS's to the video clips like convex hull and rank filters. we used source effects first and applied canvass effects on top. the clips were ran through up to 8 times additively with a variety of effect combinations. the processed clips were composed together in Final Cut with layering effects.
