What version of Studio Artist do you own?
4 +
How do you use Studio Artist?
I use Studio Artist all the time!!!! I like to do a lot of layers, region selections, region-fill-as-brush actions with an MSG processor routed through the brush, warping, alpha channel transparency, etc.

I also use MSG Evolver a lot. I actually still use MSG Evolver for sometimes even though it had been pretty much incorporated into Studio Artist 4! :)

I usually make things by generating a series of numbered frames (PNGs) that I then import into Flash, where I make interactive stuff happen.

Lately I have been using 3D programs like ZBrush and Blender and then taking the images & animations I render from those into Studio Artist.
About Me:
I am a multimedia artist and musician. Visually I use Studio Artist, ZBrush, Flash and PureData/GEM the most. In the sonic realm I use my Didjeridoo, Moog Rogue, Moog Prodigy, Ableton Live, MetaSynth, Reason, Digital Performer, PureData, and more. I really love using the Arduino microcontroller in conjunction with PureData, GEM, Flash, whatever else I can hook it up to.

I use VDMX to do live performances where I mix the videos I make in Studio Artist etc. along with my music.

I am interested in Peace and Love for all people on Earth. I try to use my art as a blunt instrument for Peace.

Thorrific Synesthetic Reactor Installation at Centraltrak in Dallas, opening Saturday March 28, 6 - 8 pm!!!

Synesthetic Reactor: A Sound and Video Installation by Thorrific

Thor Johnson’s interactive video installation detects light, motion and audio levels to generate images and sound. The participants experience the archetypes of the collective unconscious mediated through technology. The juncture between light waves affecting the visuals and sound lends a synesthetic quality to the work. There are certain… Continue

The Bonesmen

I made this back when John Kerry & George W. Bush were "running against each other". All audio from sepearate interviews with Bush and Kerry by Tim Russert on "Meet The Press".

Made mostly using Studio Artist by drawing bezier curves, and then morphing the three images together... Kerry > Skull > Bush, then I exported the frames as png files, took it in Flash, brought in the 3-D skull I made in Carrarra and Fractal Design Detailer, added some interactivity, then voila, it's… Continue

THOR – du bist der Multimediadonnergott, dein zepter ist das didjeridoo: deine morphs sind cool, deine sounds sind eigenARTig, deine performances sind superkrass und hossa, hossa: du stehst dazu auch noch auf kraftwerk, eno und laibach!
the intelligence community musiziert mit ambitioniertem sinn im underground, das gefällt mir richtig gut und mehr davon, ja und du scheinst ja bei all deiner "verrücktheit" dein gut animiertes politisch-kulturelles herz auch noch am richtigen fleck zu haben...
so, jetzt reichts mit diesem lobgesang: that's what you get for getting stoned!
machs gut, bin weiter gespannt, max

Thor, not SA related, but it came from a discussion on here, I have been doing a bit of research on OSCulator and wondered about using a midi guitar through OSCulator and controlling gleetchplug?..could i set various midi messages..notes etc to control the different parameters in gleetchplug and create a virtual instrument..
I thought i would ask you as you have experience of using it...thanks

thanks, it would appear the new version of gleetchplug has a full midi implementation it could be would mean relearning to play..but it wd make a cool ambient glitchy instrument!..

Problems with video output

Hey everybody, I'm new here and totally new to Studio Artist, as well. So far I'm loving the program--everything I create in the program looks amazing! But I'm having trouble exporting finished videos OUT of the program that actually play. I did receive a nice email from Peter here when I emailed Support but he also asked that I post my questions here on the forum so others can see and chime in.Basically, what I'm trying to do is use a pre-exiting mp4 video as my source and then auto-rotoscope…See More
