Synthetik Studio Artist

Synthetik founder, John Dalton, was a principal of OSC – the first company to bring digital audio multi-tracking to the desktop computer with Deck. Deck was also the first audio software ever to combine audio, midi and video. Deck literally provided the foundation code for Protools and later Final Cut Pro.

With the same visionary spirit, John has once again pushed the envelope with Studio Artist by blending neuroscience, artificial intelligence, computer graphics and digital video.

What's Included with Studio Artist 5.5

Intelligent Painting and Drawing

Automatic – Assisted and Manual Painting and Drawing Automatically turn photos into paintings. Studio Artist uses artificial intelligence to automatically paint, draw and rotoscope. Studio Artist examines a source image or video and then re-renders from scratch in the style you choose either automatically or interactively with just Two Easy Steps: Pick a Preset and Press Action Create photos to oil paintings, watercolors, abstract paintings, sketches and more.

Automatically Turn a Video into a Moving Painting or Drawing - Automatic Animation Rotoscoping and Video EFX Studio Artist can paint (rotoscope) video frame-by-frame automatically. Design a series of paint and image processing operations on one frame and then let Studio Artist generate a hand-painted and/or image processed video sequence automatically.

Completely resolution independent. Use a low-res source video and output a rotoscoped version to any resolution even larger than 4K!

Photo Mosaics – Automatic and Intelligent Go beyond the Grid with Studio Artist’s Intelligent Mosaic Mapping The Photo Mosaic processes in Studio Artist go way beyond conventional grid-based photo mosaic effects. Just check out Charis Tsevis’ work using Studio Artist.

Studio Artist can intelligently create a photo mosaic of any source image with adaptive regionalization. This includes curves and other shapes plus re-colorized sub-images on the fly for a more realistic render of the source image, or techniques that can render a painterly or abstracted effect.

The Vectorizer - Turn Photos or Videos Into Vector Art The Vectorizer automatically converts a raster image (like a photo or video) into resolution independent vector art. Go mild to wild! Sketch Effects, Natural Media Paints, Flat Comic Style, Line Screens, Abstract and much more.

Adjustable settings let you tweak an existing preset effect or build a new one from scratch. The Paint Synthesizer can also be configured to produce a wide range of vector paint styles. Output vector effects as EPS or SVG vector files for resolution independent printing.

Vector Paints - Natural Media Vector Paints Exclusive to Studio Artist New in Studio Artist 5 is Vector Paints. Vector Paints not only simulate natural media paints from oils to chalks but also create completely new vector paint looks previously not possible. Vector Paints can be found in the Paint Synthesizer as well as in the Vectorizer. They can be applied automatically or manually.

There are several settings that can be tweaked to create awesome looks. All of these paints are resolution independent so you can output large-scale images using SVG or EPS.

Studio Artist has a full range of image processing filters and unique visual effects. These include intelligent filters that are able to analyze a source image and adaptively apply the effect.

Temporal effects can take movie files and convert them into amazing effected still imagery, or can be used for movie processing. Stack filtering effects can be generated by taking collections of still images and processing them with temporal effects as if they were frames in a movie file, with amazing results.

Interactive Warping and Image Adjustments Twist – Bend – Transform – Blend – Kaleidoscopes – Colorize – Interactive Double Exposure – Thresholds and More Interactive warping can be done on the fly with a large variety of different warp effects. Warps and Morphs can also be specified by key-framing bezier paths over time in the Paint Action Sequence (PASeq) timeline.

The adjust modes can interactively change hue, saturation, luminance, etc. but also this mode can create line screens, thresholds, blurs and sharpening on thefly and more.

AI Generative and Abstract Art - AI Generative Art is the heart and soul of Studio Artist and is embedded in all the intelligent aspects of the software Studio Artist’s AI Generative Art creates surprising, unique and often visually exciting and adventurous styles that previously did not exist.

Even with the more seemingly conventional art styles generated by Studio Artist, there is a generative aspect but always in the spirit of collaboration with the user. Studio Artist can create full works of art completely on its own but where it shines is in collaboration with the artist/user guiding and participating in the process.

Supersizer for Images or Video - Up-res Images or Rescale DV Movies to HD or even IMAX The Supersizer is designed to take very small images and resize them to be very large images without the stair-stepping artifacts typically seen in traditional interpolation technology like bi-cubic or linear interpolation.

The Supersizer works great for taking really small images and blowing them up to 600 dpi print resolution for cover art or illustration purposes.

You can also use the Supersizer to up-res movie files from DV to HD format size or even larger. The Supersizer is directly built into Studio Artist 5.5 as an interpolation option everywhere images are resized.
