  • Yes all the movie presets can work with still art. The other way around is not always the case
  • Hi all, I am looking for presets that best work with Source Movies, thx
    • Thx for the helpful organized PASeq presets. Do they work for both movies and still art?
    • Yes. You can use any PASeq preset with a movie or a still image as the source. The factory PASeq presets marked for use with movies are specifically designed to try and introduce temporal continuity into the resulting effect. And to not focus on rendering details or texturing that is not going to be seen (or may be a distraction) in a playing movie.

      Even if your only interest is creating still art, working with processing movies and/or building animation effects that play out over time can lead to many amazing still art images created from one of the frames of the animation.
    • That's great and well explained, but is there an organized PASeq examples guide for 'still art' such as the one I am using now for rotoscoping? and I am looking for a preset that I used in earlier SA version (on CD) which I can't find in v. 5.5, I really forgot its names but gives the effect of tiny detailed colored lines that resemble hair.
    • You should be able to import the old preset into V5.5 if you have it on a cd somewhere.
      Or if there is some problem (might be true for a really old PASeq), then if you have the name of it and what kind of preset it was i can take a look. I have a complete set of all of the old factory presets going back to V1 that i use in V5.5. So i might have it in a form that could be run in V5.5.
    • All the examples on the Synthetik site are made with PASeq presets. If you go to this link there are loads of presets by category you can get to on the top of the page and there is a explanation on how to find the presets. All the examples named the same as the Studio Artist PASeq preset name. https://synthetik.com/general-auto-rotoscoping-examples/

    • Thanks for posting this!
      The examples are very inspirational
  • Hi Thor,
    Many thanks! I will check this out.

  • Hi All,
    I came here looking for Cool Presets I can download and learn from. Someone below mentions that he downloaded some Cool Presets - where is the link to those presets downloads? Thanks! Gary

Paint Synth Presets - Vector Generative and Drawing update

Sharing a set of Paint Synth Presets that are all about making huge vector messes I have been calling "generative art" that are a blast to work with. These may be partly repeated from a previous post.CD_new_2024.zipAlso in the set are several drawing painting presets (randomly dispersed as the naming is not at all sensible) that are entirely vector - but create various kinds of textured looks and mix to some degree with other colors (see attached jpeg): Hopefully NING here allows the…

Paint Synth Presets - vector for generative art

Posting a set of Paint Synth Presets many used to create images viewable in this thread here: Generative Art. Vague meanderings in color and random forms generated with code like this: These are almost entirely vector bases presets that function to create interesting things on the canvas thru hand drawing (with a stylus on a tablet) or using the Action button. Many are dramatically un-"vector" like in texture and combined effect.  Most are more interesting to watch as they form imagery - than…

Paint Synth Presets - mostly vector based

Sharing some (mostly vector) Paint Synth Presets (zipped folders)In the "CD_NEWVector_2022" zip are a large collection of presets mostly desined for "drawing" directly on the canvas, preferably with a stylus and tablet. Many of these have a wet mix quality to them and many use various texturing in the vector settings to give the strokes some tooth.The "CD_NEWAlts_2022" zip contains a set of vector offshoots from a set of raster presets that behaved like fingerpaints... The vector versions don't…
