Download: Studio Artist Paint Patches, Series 1327 MSG effects brushes
The potential benefit of such a system is, of course, enormous. Imagine being able to paint your favorite effect directly onto your image or movie, without any masking or selection whatsoever, using pen pressure and tilt to adjust how the effect is applied with your brush. Unfortunately, at this point, there aren't any brushes of this type available. Hmm. I wonder what we can do to rectify this situation....
Our collection of Studio Artist Paint Patches this week includes 27 brushes that use MSG filters as their source, allowing you to paint effects onto your canvas. Best of all, you don't even need to have the filters for these brushes to work. The filter effects are stored within the brush files themselves! SOme of the brushes in the collection use filters that are included with the program; others are based on filters I've created myself. All are image processing effects, meaning that you can use them to suck data from your source image or movie and apply this filtered data to the canvas. Of course, as with all Studio Artist brushes (AKA Paint Patches), these brushes are fully customizable. You can substitute your own MSG filters, and you can change any and all of the parameters of the brushes themselves. Some are applied like paint brushes; some are automatic region fill brushes; and others will fill the entire canvas with a single click, regardless of canvas size.
Here's an example using on of the "Light Sketch" brushes in this collection to rotoscope some video footage automatically in just a few minutes. (Click Play button to watch.)
And here are some further examples.
