I'm hoping John and others will weigh in with some interesting methods for creating and applying textures globally as well as selectively to images in Studio Artist.I'd like to find a method or process for applying a believable canvas texture to a finished image. The requirements I have in mind are: 1_subtle application of the texture that mimics the real world effect of paint on canvas (some kind of luminence mapping?) 2_the ability to apply texture globally, or selectively by brush…See More
"I'd suggest opening a tech support ticket for this issue. Then in the ticket, tell us very explicitly what you are doing, so that we can try and reproduce what you are doing here. So what resets you are using, how you are moving between them,…"
"I'm also finding the 64bit version a bit buggy (it could be something I am doing or my setup).

"Thanks for the additional info and response. I think my problem seems to be related to the info in paragraph 6 - the resource fork issue. I believe several presets going back to a very early version of SA got a more current date at some point…"

After bumping into the performance ceiling using the 32 bit version of SA with large canvases at higher resolutions I fired up the 64bit version. However some of my manual paint brushes have "disappeared" from the menus (favorites bar and presets window) in the 64bit version. These appear to be older versions created around '06, but not all of those created around that time are affected. They do not show up in the usual places though they still reside in the original folder structure that…See More
Nice to hear from you. Sorry it took so long to respond we spend a lot of time up at the lake in the summer. I never heard of Live Play but am always interested in new and old stuff. Love your abstracts.
Hand painted is nearly always better. One cool aspect of SA is that you can record the hand painted line as a bezier curve, then use the paint paths command to try different strokes. I posted an example of this using a drawing of an avocado a while back. link: http://studioartist.ning.com/forum/topics/bezier-curves-movie
well for something "simple" there is a lot of complexity there. I like how you have subtly shaded the colors, and the use of line is great. Not just the curve and placement of the line but the texture and width of the line too.
I do it in a similar way although, I do blend layers if I am not getting what I want otherwise ( or to see what I might be missing). I wind up saving lots of versions and then select the one(s) I like.

"Reset Generator is what you were looking for in the Path Start control panel. It's an editable parameter of it's own, not an option in the Generator. If you turn it on, then a random seed parameter you can set for it becomes…"
What would be necessary to to make AutoPaint strokes look more consistent from frame to frame in an animation? (Or even when re-drawing the same frame for that matter?)A fixed random seed for Auto Paint would help probably. I checked out different types of "Path Start / Generator", but I could not find the right option.The best would be if that random seed can be animated, so it's possible to have more continuous strokes and more flickering ones.A hint would be very much appreciated, thanks a…See More
