GS: force masking

I want to experiment with a bunch of finished artworks.
Is it possible to set the GS only with focus doing the auto masking-functions and mute all other generative effects that touch my sources?
For the main-technique I want to use an io-preset that does only some light adjustments. thank you

  • So you can put whatever presets you want in a custom favorites folder,  make that folder the current favorites folder, then run the current favorites main technique.

    So if you only have one preset in there, then it will just run that one preset.

    Mutate Current Favorites would always be mutating it, so it would be different parameter settings each time it runs.

    But using Current Favorites doesn't change the preset parameters in any way.


    Turn off everything else.

    There is a gallery show quick edit under action : gallery show that lets you Initialize gallery show, so that is a great fast way to turn off everything.


    If you use the Fixed Image ip op, then your technique is just going to pass through whatever the Ip Source is set to.

    Sa V5.5.5 Fixe Image IpOp has some extra effects built into it, so make sure those are turned off if you are using that version for this particular thing you want to do.


    So then if you turn on the auto-masking part of gallery show, it is juts going to automask  the main technique output, which is the Fixed Image ip op passing the source image through.

Where is ProRes & co?

I have both FCPX and Davinci Resolve innstalled on my Mac, and the ProRes codecs are available on both those applications. But not Studio Artist. It is not a choice when I select codec from streams in the File menu. Where is it hiding? Anyone have a clue or experienced the same problem? Thanks!David

Auto White Balance and Color Histogram Equalization

Someone recently suggested adding auto white balance adjustment and color histogram equalization to V6.  Both of those effects have existed in Studio Artist since V1.  I would encourage you to check out the White Balance IpOp effect and the Image Compressor IpOp effect respectively. You can also build both of these kinds of color statistics manipulation effects using MSG processors. Studio Artist V5.5.5 also has a new IpOp effect called the Image Compeller.  It allows you to manipulate the…
