simulating wrinkled paper

Hi,  had anyone found any crumpled paper paseqs or MSGs?

I was trying to create an effect that would give a picture a sence of being painted on crumpled piece of paper or being painted on a wads of crumpled paper. Without much luck. 

Even something vaguely crumpled would be good. At least I would have some where to start.

  • Hi, I've scanned actual old paper and used it in one layer, while painting on it in another layer using alpha.

    But, to get the texture showing through, you could use the image operation preset called 'bring in source image and texture' and use an image of actual paper as your underlying texture, might be worth an experiment.

    You probably know all this, but it'll hopefully be useful to someone.

    • Thanks!

      Thanks for the tip about that IOP. I use Gradiant Lighting all the time, and never thought about using it that way. (LOL every day is learning experiece with SA)

      I thought about using a photograph of wrinkled paper but then decided to use Filter forge. It's got some nifty wrinkled/crumpled paper filters. The only problem is,  the finished image, still has parallel edges. The wrinkles look great, but the image itself, looks "wrong"

      Now that I think about, what I'm looking for, is outside of what Studio Artist does. to get wrinkled edges, you'd need something that plays with the actual geometry of wrinkles, and the the affect they have on the papers dimensions.

      LOL, maybe I'l just wind up printing an image, then crumple it by hand, and take a picture of it!

Question about ModFloatSumArea

I've been working on an MSG, that uses the SRC, SetToRandomEdgeMask, along with Invert, 1ToFloatSumArea and 1ModBlurFloatSumAreaRGBtoYIQ1ToFloatSumArea1PosNegFloatSumArea1ToFloatSumArea1PosNegFloatSumArea1ToFloatSumArea1TVFloatSumArea1PosNegFloatSumAreaYIQtoRGBRGB_ HueShiftSet ToRndEdgeMaskInvert1ToFloatSumArea1ModBlurFloatSumArea1ToFloatSumArea1ModBlurFloatSumArea1ToFloatSumArea1ModBlurFloatSumAreaThe Blur works as expected, but there is an artifact that gets generated which I cant get rid…

new features

I know this is huge ask, but it would be super helpful to be able to create  MSGs and PASEQs, programatically. This would vastly increase the animation potential of SA.We can create individual MSG, right now, but it is a manual and labor intensive operaton, and even then there are operations that you just can't do in the current animation set up. Being able to create large number of either MSG or PASEQ, using a program interface would be huge.

Why would MSG Advanced Editor be out of sync with Evolution Editor

What I mean by this, is that when I select one of the thumbnails from the Evolution Editor screen, I would expect that the thumbail in the MSG Advanced Editor screen would be the same.In an MSG I created, only using the MSG, Inspire control I came accross this case.  The image that is created, matches the Advanced Editor Image, not the one I want, from the the Evolution Editor Image.None of the parameters in any of the SRC's are muted, so I know that none of the color channels are getting…

Love to the island of Maui

Hi, everyone, John and Candice especially.I've been watching the news and the fire on Maui, and it is just devastating. It looks like Haiku was spared, but everyone on the island will bear the grief and loss for a long time. Your software and generosity of spirit has given me so much joy. My wish is that you are physically safe, and surrounded by Ohana.If there is anything we can do from the mainland, material help, a favorite charity, please let me know. That walk on Front Street was my…
