today I tried to figure out how to vary the line weight based on RGB values
in hopes that I could apply this to pre-drawn sketched made with
a single density line.
Flash doesn't allow you to access those values directly - (probably
would have been better off using another tool). I imported the Hex
values from an image into a text file (using the same postscript
driver trick from before) and parsed the values inside of Flash.
I used these values to control two things - the color and thickness
of a line segment that swept back and forth across the page.
Again...its basically a homemade filter...by adjusting the parameters,
i could get some interesting effects - but all of them looked pretty
dull...next step is to try and use this logic to vary the weight
of a pre-made line drawing to see if it yields more organic results
than i had before...
here is the tool i used to make these.
