The Saville Raster was the first script I wrote for Scriptographer, though I have to admit that I had alot of help from a friend.
It didn’t take long and the result was very satisfying and really sparked a new interest in trying to use Illustrator as a tool for more procedurally generated art/design, such as Processing or NodeBox/NodeBox 2. I named it Saville Raster after its strong resemblance of Peter Saville’s iconic album cover for Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures.
Unfortunately, just a day or two after posting the script, I was contacted by Jürg who felt, although glad I had started using Scriptographer, obliged to remove the script. We exchanged some mails and sorted it all out.
If anything, I felt kind of flattered by the whole thing.

Trying to stifle the spread of something thats relatively easy to repeat is a loosing game

….and somewhat ironic that its a copied style in the first place.. Jürg has plenty to claim his fame for. Not sure why he’s still so ‘my precious’ about this personally

A while back I sent an email to Jürg asking him if he minded I released my Saville Raster script. As he didn’t replied I figured it wouldn’t be that big a deal anyway. Litteraly 5 minutes before I was about to post it I got his reply saying:
“I still plan to release the Faust script, but need to brush it up a bit. So if you could refrain from releasing the Saville, that’d be great.”
So, I am NOT stifling, I have gotten ALOT of emails asking me to release it and believe me, I do want to. But on the other hand, it’s is all due to Jürg that we have this wonderful plugin to toy around with in the first place and I feel that I want to honour his wishes because of that.
I hope you can endure, otherwise I would suggest to make your own version as it is really a very small matter but nonetheless personally rewarding in doing so.

I’m waiting for the download link. Congrats for the work.

I really love your work, Håkan!
The only thing is i don’t understand why Jürg preventing you from posting your script? You didn’t use or see his code when creating your script and the ideas cannot be copyrighted.
Anyways, I wonder if you could try to add this level of functionality to your script as shown here: http://ertdfgcvb.com/p2/etw/iloveyou (by the way since this app is out, maybe there is no point to keep your own script under the table?)

Hello Cool! Where can I get this script?
May 9th, 2012 at 12:17
and thanks. As of right now it is not for public use. Maybe sometime in the future I will make it available.
In the meantime you could always try this one out, by Gareth Williams, as it produces a very similar effect.

Is it possible,
