A quick sketch of today's iPad announcements. Used SA4's Edge Sketch as well as Adaptive Filter and Blur. Exploited apple's white background to keep things simple

You beat me to it, i also thought that the parts of their promotional video with the people speaking on the white backdrop would make great source material for some studio artist processing.

I think we can have a field day with the footage... until the Apple Bonkers come for us!

Victor,

Great play. Your work continues to inspire me. I look forward to getting into the film side of SA.

victor,
I downloaded the apple vid. I spent hours just trying to get edge sketch to work. I am on SA v4 and can not see how to get those organic lines, which leads me to ask:
Are you using a tablet input device? Some type of high end puck?

I am just curious.

Hi Laurence,

No special tablet or mouse used. The edges were generated using the normal "action" button in SA. Here is a screenshot of the settings.


Note the use of "use seed" instead of "unique". Using a particular seed (which seed is immaterial.. just that the seed is the same for each frame) makes for less flicker/change of lines frame to frame. The "Min" composite setting allows you to apply the dark lines on top of whatever is on the canvas at the time. "Size Clip" as well as other settings will need to be adjusted for your particular needs and source image.

For tweaking I always use SA4's run loop action feature ("Shift+Comm+R") while adjusting settings... this the best way to see, in real time, the effects of your tweaks.

thanks victor, I feel sometimes over whelmed by john's work... it keeps you on your toes to find what other hidden gems john programmed into SA v4

yes Laurence... you pretty much have to surrender to SA; and expect your brain to grow a third lobe, specifically to explore it.

Could the SA Weekly Challenge make a comeback?

I'm new to SA and really having lot of fun drifting. I think SA is the best bit of digital painting kit out there and has so much potential! The Rotoscoping thing is amazing, but I'm only into static images and printing.I like the idea of developing styles, and think SA is prefect for this. There is so much, that it becomes a bit overwhelming, so I'm slowly trying to reduce the process and get to understand the Basic steps. I don't want to just keep producing one of images that are more guess…See More
