Introduction to MSG

MSG stands for modular synthesized graphics. MSG is a modular image processing architecture that allows you to build essentially an infinite number of different image or video processing effects or abstract procedural art images or animations. MSG presets can generate abstract procedural art from scratch, or can be configured to process a source image or…

Abstracting a Source Image Using MSG

MSG (modular synthesized graphics) is Studio Artist’s modular image processing architecture. 500 different image processing modules (called processors) are available within MSG and can be combined together to create an infinite variety of different image synthesis or processing effects. MSG can be used to create abstract procedural imagery or animations from scratch. Or MSG can…

Recursive IO Connections in MSG Presets

Wikipedia includes the following as an explanation for recursion. “In order to understand recursion, one must first understand recursion.” But we’re going to try and explain it here anyway. Recursive IO connections in the context of a MSG preset means that a given input Stream for a processor is also used as the output Stream. Oftentimes…
