"I modified the Evolver PAseq preset so it generates a color palette from the current canvas, and then uses that for the coloring for the 2 autopaint action steps. So i turned off palette save for those 2 autopaint action steps. The last 2 watershed…"

"OK, lets take a look at the PASeq. The first AutoPaint action step is using the RGB 2nd match Color Palette option for the Color Mode in the Paint Color Source control panel. And a 48 Randomize using Cycle RGB. So, it's choosing the 2nd…"

Still Art PASeq Scripts > Non-Rep Generative > Evolver

So, let me ask about this ... Still Art PASeq Scripts > Non-Rep Generative and Abstract > EvolverI can't figure out when using this particular script where it's picking up the colours from to generate a final product. It sometimes seems that it does use some of the general base colours in the image. Other times, the background/base image seems to have nothing at all to do with the final colours that start being filled in in the first steps.I've tried using my own work as backgrounds,…See More

"4.06? Yikes, my version is still 4.04. The upgrade is necessary then if I'm installing 10.9 this week?"

Hi

It's been a long time since I've created with Studio Artist.

I remember, working in San Francisco when my teenager was barely two, and visiting John and Candice in their offices. Being dazzled by SA — one of those few programs that simply captures your imagination. Immediately buying v1.0 through v2.0. Creating some great works, one of which was auctioned off in a SFO art auction, through simply play. SA was always, to me, about creating through experimenting and play. Childlike fun, but never childish (apologies to Twombly).

I'm looking forward to jumping back into the SA community, reacquainting myself with other "old" SA users, and generally contributing where I can.

Isn't SA fun? And isn't that the point of creating?

Good to be back.

P.S. I'll be updating my site(s) soon and posting some new work I'm creating with SA. Constructive comments and criticism always welcomed. I learn through failure and play.
