John Dilworth replied to John Dilworth's discussion Studio Artist Version 4 versus Version 5--Two Parallel Galaxies?
"Thanks, John, that’s very helpful.  It suggests that my comparison of V4 versus V5 presets in terms of one artistic territory versus two is over-simplified.  What we actually have is individual presets--whether from V1, V5 or…"

"I have found that my experience of working with V5 entirely different than with V4. Eventually I do intend to copy my Presets from V4 to V5. For the present I feel it is in my best interests to learn V5 and gain what it has to offer with only…"

John Dalton Synthetik Software replied to John Dilworth's discussion Studio Artist Version 4 versus Version 5--Two Parallel Galaxies?
"I think copying your V4 preset categories over to V5 is a great thing to do if you are a V4 customer. That way you can continue to work with factory or custom presets you are familiar with while also exploring the new stuff. I still keep and use all…"

Studio Artist Version 4 versus Version 5--Two Parallel Galaxies?

Granted, SA5 is a very significant structural upgrade from SA4, both in terms of the efficiency and sophistication of its underlying code, and in its greatly increased user programmability.  However, it is easy to forget that what we users are most in contact with, when using either version, are the included presets themselves, in terms of what they can do to change our initial images in artistic ways.  But in comparing SA4 and SA5 presets, I’m immediately struck by how different these collections are.  Even though SA5 has many more non-MSG presets than SA4--12,266 compared with 6,261---I’m very surprised that so few of the named non-MSG SA4 presets have survived into SA5 (at least, if they haven’t been disguised with new names in SA5).  I don’t view this as a bad thing, but instead what we now have is two mainly distinct, parallel galaxies of presets to play around with in the SA universe--letting literally many thousands of new flowers bloom. The artistic landscapes of the presets…See More

"Actually John, if I had more money, I probably could do with less gear (right now I am stuck in SD, would love to work in real-time in HD, but most of my gear can’t handle that and I cannot afford the upgrades). Here’s another shot,…"

SA Hot Keys on Steroids: The Contour ShuttlePro v2

SA Hot Keys on Steroids: The Contour ShuttlePro v2SA hot key combinations, such as Cmd-R for action or Cmd-B to erase, are a pain to find and type on the keyboard.  Think how convenient it would be, if instead these were single keys--and always under your fingertips.  This is what the Contour ShuttlePro v2 device (http://ergo.contourdesign.com/US/product/shuttlepro-v2/) makes possible.  It has 15 programmable keys for your choice of app keys or combinations, and the device can stay under your non-mouse hand for instant keypresses as needed.  I’ve set up a Studio Artist template of major keys and combinations for it, as illustrated above, which you can modify as you please.The device is larger than a mouse (8 x 4 inches), so I use mine…See More

Initial Attempts with MSG and ImOps

I started off with Studio Artist by trying to duplicate my previous physical paintings (e.g. see my initial post  http://studioartist.ning.com/forum/topics/feathery-brushstrokes-in-sa?commentId=717108%3AComment%3A176633)But fortunately, the program has also opened up some wholly new approaches for me, using MSG and various Im Ops.  For some extra samples please see my website http://john-dilworth.pixels.com/, comments welcome.  Hopefully they may encourage others to try out these powerful SA tools! See More

"Thanks John, yes sure, things have changed in 3 years :-) I think that Astropad makes the job. I don't specially want a mac monitor screen. I prefer using the iPad pro only as a window into a program, like a "canvas" tool, wireless."

Florence Artur replied to John Dilworth's discussion Wacom Cintiq vs Ipad Pro and Apple Pencil
"Thank you, interesting feedback. I think one difference between the Apple pencil and the Wacom is that Wacom also detects tilt, not only pressure. I'm sure that would change how some presets react, even if you're not aware that you are…"

When I saw the video of the concert Marco Ambrosini (nyckelharpa) presented with Caterina Other (nyckelharpa) and Frieder Zimmermann (guitar), I immediately knew I wanted to listen to its music with my eyes. The beautiful energy of that performance…
