There's a new tutorial tip that discusses how to convert a raster image operation effect into something that generates vector output. The particular example discussed int he tip is how to take the Line Screen Regionize effect and generate vector output from it. But the techniques discussed apply to a wide range of different image operation effects.
The Studio Artist 4 PASeq preset files generated in the tip is provided below for download.
One cool additional thing that falls out of this tutorial is that you can use the vectorizer with the 'flat input' settings detailed in the tutorial to take an image processing effect that generates hard flat color edges that have some aliasing artifacts and get convert it into an anti-aliased smooth version of the same effect.
Typically i have used repeated applications of the Smart Blur image operation to do this. Using the vectorizer to do it is a very different approach. The Smart Blur settings i use to clean up hard rough edges are the following:
