Generating EPS Vector Files

EPS stands for encapsulated postscript and is a vector file format. The advantage of vector files over raster image files is that a vector file is essentially resolution independent and can be rescaled smoothly to any resolution. Raster image files are pixel based image files and while they can be resized with something like Studio…

Generating Bezier Paths from Images

There are a wide variety of different tools available in Studio Artist for converting raster images into bezier path renditions of the image. These include techniques to generate bezier path edge sketches (like above), as well as bezier mass sketches based on cross hatching, and complete cartoon style vector renditions of of color imagery. This…

Vector Drawing in the Paint Synthesizer

  The classic paint synthesizer was originally designed to draw with raster paint applied to vector paths. 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.

Generating SVG Vector Output

Studio Artist has the ability to generate SVG vector output for any vectorized preset.  Not only can all Vectorizer presets can be output as .svg but also a lot of Paint Synthesizer presets are vector as well as Image Operations presets especially a lot of the sketch effects. SVG is generally suggested over EPS for…
