I’ve been thinking about this idea for a while
I am relatively new to video synthesis (a couple years of noodling)
I did not have a background in video art or production
I enjoy noodling and messing about with a small understanding of basic concepts but am yearning to practice something more solid
when I am learning a musical instrument I try to divide time between practicing scales and improvisation
I feel that when it comes to video synthesis I’m mostly just improvising and while there is nothing inherently wrong with that I also feel like I’m missing some building blocks
so can we maybe come up with a video cookbook for basic patches to get the mud bubbling?
put a rectangle in upper left corner
roll a ball accross the screen
make a 3d looking cube
things of this nature
maybe I’m over thinking it but it seems like coming up with some “scales” to work on would be great for video muscle memory
maybe there are already resources like this available?
