Pixels + blur :
Pixels + blur + paletteMap :
Pixels + blur + paletteMap + colors :
Each step adds its own parameters which influence the final result, especially the blur radius and the paletteMap.
I haven’t used tools like Soulwire’s simple flash GUI tool and it’s a mistake, I spent too much time to changing the code and compiling the swf just to set new parameters values.
In the last experiment the color schemes are generated. I will probably write a post about that because it’s a subject I like a lot.
There are other experiments using paletteMap that I will show in another post because it’s really an interesting function.
