What version of Studio Artist do you own?
3.5.2
How do you use Studio Artist?
I've been using it to alter video and still footage. It's the primary tool that I've been using to create a multimedia piece called Artificial Afrika, which is a work-in-progress that also became the title of a group show held at Gigantic Art Space in NYC. When finished Artificial Afrika will be 33 pieces of video art/animation that examine and confront notions of Africa as pre- and post-colonial diasporic myth, whatever the hell that means... My goal is to finish A.A. by the end of `07. Yikes.
About Me:
I'm primarily known as a musician (guitarist), a founding member of the rock band Living Colour, the jazzrock band Masque and half of The YoHimBe Brothers (with dj Logic). I'm also a photographer and visual artist exploring emerging technologies as tool and medium on the mac. Studio Artist for me, is the equivalent of Ableton Live in audio; easy to get into and have fun with, while also possessing a very deep feature set, capable of great complexity and richness

Render blues...

Hi folks.... Just back from LA and a couple of fun shows with the Yohimbe Brothers.... When I left I set my 2 PPC desktops to render some longish Public Domain films for Artificial Afrika. Even with a fast computer, rendering a dense or complex P.A.S. can take days. My G4 tanked, my G5 is at 10K frames and counting....10K to go. My fingers are crossed but I may bail, an take what
I can get-if SA crashes, I lose the rendered up-to-now QT file. Hate when that happens!

Great work on the Masque project "Other True Self."

Question about Artificial Afrika: In Refined Negro Rage Musing, I feel like I should recognize the face that the morphing images are washing over, but I don't. Is this someone I should know..?

"Here's one quick idea. MSG processors are available to transform from RGB to a number of different color spaces (and back again), including YIQ, VHS, LHS, LAB, LUV, etc. SO you could transform the image to an alternate color space, then add a…"

Synthetik Software replied to smm samm's discussion where can I find Studio Artist 5 windows 64 Bit?
"Studio Artist 5 ships on the mac with the normal 32 bit version as well as a 64 bit build. The 32 bit build is full featured, the 64 bit build lacks support for anything quicktime related, since the quicktime sdk is 32 bit only. We provided the 64…"

How to Set the Canvas to Transparent

Hello, I'm using SA5 and would like to set the Canvas to transparent so that when I save the image as a PNG file, only what I have drawn on the canvas will be saved without the white background.  Is there any easy way to do this?  Thank you, T.C.See More
