Un-Occupy the InternetAre you tired of stupid governments trying to institute laws which regulate your internet use?Un-Occupy the Internet2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Are you sick of feeling like your voice is not being heard?
Have you tried some form of protest (in whatever country you might live), only to be beaten, tear gassed, or otherwise told to "shut up!"
Are you, like so many of us world-wide, disgusted with the unequal distribution of wealth? Sick of being part of the 99%?
Well, I have the cure...
Last month, we all saw just what kind of power we actually have... we shut down SOPA/PIPA
Millions of people world-wide decided we didn't want this stupid law, and we said so, in a very clear, very loud voice... and we can do the same to protest everything else we feel is wrong with the world.
This being leap year, we have one extra day this month, February 29, and I propose that we all Un-Occupy the Internet on that day.
What do I mean by this? My proposal is simple, and requires absolutely no effort on your part, in fact, it requires eve

New tools for artists: JWildfire V0.53 releaseJust released JWildfire V0.53.New tools for artists: JWildfire V0.53 release1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Major additions where made to fractal flame editor regarding to controlling image quality at the artist level. There is now an antialiasing option which you can specify at the transform level and some additional powerful gradient manipulation tools.
Complete list of changes:
- new antialising option on the transform level, you can control this by two parameters: amount (how many samples are affected by this effect) and radius (how strong is the antialasing effect)
- new gradient manipulation functions: invert and reverse gradient
- new gradient manipulation properties: blur and frequency
- changed the layout of the main toolbar so that it better resizes according to different screen resolutions
- new built-in script example (based on "Mobius Dragon" by penny5775)
- using multiple threads for tonemapping of the realtime preview which should result in smoother behaviour on most machines
- fixed a bug in the Elliptic variation (now should work like the old *

"This is Simon, Mark's brother, with the terribly sad news that Mark passed away last week.
This was a huge shock to us all.
I helped him set up his PC with all his drawing tools so knew how much he adored producing his bespoke digital artwork and how much the Deviant art community meant to him.
On his behalf I'd like to thank you all for the friendship and support you've shown and would ask you to pause for a minute at 14:20 on Monday 1st October. (British Summer Time)
With Kind Regards.

I had started to create an alternative external renderer (specialized to render movies more quickly) in the meantime. This release is something like an "intermediate release". It has lots of internal optimizations, many new plugins to play with and some bugs fixed. But the new renderer is not yet included because this would have been just to much work in this time period.
So this release contains many smaller enhancements and you may look forward for the upcoming V0.53 which will bring up some really new stuff

In the meantime, I have a couple news items, and a special double feature this week.
In the news, as most you may have already heard, Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon died this past week... a very sad thing indeed. To find links to news articles about this, please visit the journal of :iconskyzyk: as Gary posted links to NASA and other articles about this sad topic.
You may or may not have heard, and perhaps do not care to know that the Actress/Comedienne Phyllis Diller also passed away this past week... some of you are probably too young to really be aware of Ms. Diller, I would bet some of are really too young to know much about Mr. Armstrong... but still its very sad news.

Neil ArmstrongApollo 11 was the spaceflight which landed the first humans, Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, on the Moon on July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC. Armstrong became the first to step onto the lunar surface 6 hours later on July 21 at 02:56 UTC. A third member of the mission, Michael Collins, remained alone in lunar orbit until they returned from the surface about 15 hours later. All three astronauts returned to Earth safely after travelling in space for 8 days. and today on August 25,2012 we lost him so in his honor here are a couple of videos.Neil Armstrong1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Memorial DayToday, we honor America's real heros.Memorial Day2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For love of country, they accepted death.
True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.
They served, and died, so that we might live, FREE.
In their honor, we must always cherish and passionately guard the LIBERTY they died defending..
Just a little reminder of what Memorial day ia ll about.
Thank you for your sacrifice....

Jesse has just released a new Beta version of M3D; v22.214.171.124 testfile.
As ever, it's available for free download from FractalForums.com at:
What's new in the 126.96.36.199 test version:
In Jesse's own words:
"Some beta testing is needed because of compiler upgrading,
the changes belong to the intern light model, more options for the diffuse map,
panorama camera mode, stereo options.
Some issues should be solved, many new ones to find!
It is just the executable, you can take all directories with files from the previous
version if you need them, or adjust the ini-dirs to the existing ones.
Notice: the new stereo options must be used from the same starting parameters
to work properly, I will change this for an easier handling. For now you have to undo
the parameters or reload default ones.
Notice2: in version 1.797 I changed it to an absolute behaviour, but there are some
issues with hard shadows and/or ref
