What version of Studio Artist do you own?
How do you use Studio Artist?

I love several facets of Studio Artist: more often than not I am happily surprised by the outcome of a SA session--to get something better than I could have set out to create is simply magical; SA allows digital art to go way beyond simulations (and limitations) of traditional old-fashioned media; and as a result less environmental impact since all those oils, canvases, and brushes didn't have to be shipped over from China.

a creative buzz from this forum

So far I'm really excited to be hanging out with other Studio Artist users and seeing some of the amazing creations enabled by this fabulous application. I used to check the other SA forum once a week or so but hopefully I'll have the time to check in here daily.

This forum definitely is more conducive to sharing the results of our creative explorations. Hopefully I'll have something to post myself shortly.

Some of the videos people have posted have blown me away. Now I'm… Continue

thanks for your reply. i am hearing alpha channel used in regards to video often and i'm not sure what the connection is. i have photoshop elements but for some reason i'm intimidated by the layers thing although it would be great for my collage work. i guess i did something similar to layers by using multiple source images. i like the picture of the colorful head on your page. do you know why alpha channels are associated with video?

This video, one of my very first using Studio Artist, was created (between 1997 and 2001) with/from a series of images made in NYC in 1978-79 when I started teaching at the New York Studio School ( I spent the whole year working on one…

Search Parameters?

So I always get lost in StudioArtist since there are several hundred variables I can potentially edit. Not to mention the Paint Synthesizer, despite being organized, manages to kinda overwhelm me.It's basically like using Maya, where you end up with hundreds of variables which are editable, all kinda shoved into pages and pages of tabs. I'm used to seeing lists of variables and settings and so on, but it's just always nice to be able to get directly to places I need.My thoughts: what if we had…See More
