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.

Other processes, generate…

Start Time Offsets for Source Movie Processing

A question comes up from time to time.  How can one build a start time and an end time offset into the processing of a source movie in Studio Artist?  People also refer to this as adding an 'in' and 'out' point to a source movie.  Old Studio Artist 3.5 let you configure that using an in and out check box in the source area.  That old feature did not make the V4 rewrite of the entire application apple forced us to do at that time.  But there are new features in V5.5 that let you do it again in a…
