Synthetik Software has announced the upcoming update to Studio Artist, bringing it to version 3.02. Studio Artist is a utility designed for graphic design and video professionals. The update features G5 speed enhancements and additional image processing. According to Synthetik Software:
Synthetik Software today announced additional enhancements to its award winning software Studio Artist, the worlds first graphics and video synthesizer.
Developed by Synthetik Software Inc., Studio Artist is the first commercial program for computer artists that incorporates research results from cognitive neuroscience investigations into the nature of visual perception in the brain.
Studio Artist uses human visual modeling to construct an internal representation from a source image or video that is used to direct smart assisted painting and drawing. The result is Studio Artist knows how to paint and draw. This includes both still images as well as auto-rotoscoped video sequences.
Studio Artist 3 introduces many new features including the new Vectorizer raster to vector synthesizer with EPS output capabilities, MSG Modular Synthesized Graphics plug-in architecture, live video processing, enhanced animation capabilities, greatly expanded image processing and Paint Synthesizer functionality, and over 8 hours of Quicktime video tutorials and instructional guides.
Studio Artist 3.02 enhancements include additional speed optimizations for Macintosh G5, OS-X dual processor support, a faster Vectorizer, additional image processing and paint synthesizer functionality.
