All of the imagery in this was automatically generated by Gallery Show.  It is all derived from MSG presets that are being live evolved and mutated in the Evolution Editor as gallery show is running.  I'm using the grab button in the Gallery Show Toolbar to grab output from gallery show that i like and save it to a folder.

Once the gallery show run is finished, then i keyframe the saved gallery show image grabs in the folder, which you can do with a s ingle menu command.  You can then run a second menu command to time expand the timeline so there is space between the Transition Context keyframes.

You can then add additional action steps to your PASeq if you want to add additional adaptive image compression, sharpening, etc effects to polish up the transitioning grab image keyframes.


There are a lot of different approaches to working with restrictive sets of MSG presets.  The default settings for MSG techniques in gallery show default to using the entire factory MSG preset set.  This might be good if you want a lot of diversity in the output, or you are just using gallery show as a mechanism to explore what MSG can do (the potential MSG visual appearance space is super huge).

Under the Action : Gallery Show : Assets menus you can retarget the MSG cache location if you would prefer to restrict where gallery show is looking for MSG presets.  So you can point it at a custom folder, or collection, or category, whatever you want.

You can also setup custom Favorites or Process folders you put together that contain specific MSG presets you want to work with.
