Time Particles Introduction

Time Particles provide a way for individual paint strokes painted by the paint synthesizer to have temporal continuity in an animation. Temporal continuity means that the individual paint strokes are present across multiple sequential frames as the animation progresses. The individual paint strokes associated with the time particles can have their own movement that is occurring over…

MSG Live Source Brush

MSG Live is a new Source option in the paint synthesizer’s Brush Source control panel. This source brush option uses the current MSG preset to generate a source brush image buffer on the fly when drawing. Any MSG preset can be used to interactively generate the source brush, which means you can use Temporal Generators…

Vector Drawing in the Paint Synthesizer

Some limited options for anti-aliased vector drawing that bypasses the traditional raster paint engine have been added to the v4 classic paint synthesizer. This post will explain the various vector and raster-vector hybrid drawing options in more depth.
