Apophysis 7X 15C - Installer available nowI have made an installer for Apophysis 7X 15C available at xyrus-worx.orgApophysis 7X 15C - Installer available now2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please be aware that this installer is for Microsoft Windows only. It comes in two versions: for the 32 bit and the 64 bit version of Apophysis 7X 15C. The two versions can be installed side-by-side. Even in a single folder (but be careful - you might not want to uninstall the 32 bit version if you have the 64 bit version in the same folder so I recommend keeping the folders separate)
Unlike for the ZIP-package, 32- and 64 bit version do not come in a single file!
Currently, the german, italian and chinese language packs are shipped with the installer. The other language packs are outdated and for the vanilla version 7x15 only.
The 32 bit-installer offers you to install a collection of DC-plugins as well as two sample scripts. Please mind that upon uninstallation, these plugin .DLL-files will be removed even if they were there before. This also app

The Healing Power of MusicSince the beginning of recorded history, music has played a significant role in the healing of our world. Music and healing were communal activities that were natural to everyone. In ancient Greece, Apollo was both the god of music and medicine. Ancient Greeks said, "Music is an art imbued with power to penetrate into the very depths of the soul." These beliefs were shared through their Doctrine of Ethos. In the mystery schools of Egypt and Greece, healing and sound were considered a highly developed sacred science. Pythagoras, one of the wise teachers in ancient Greece, knew how to work with sound. He taught his students how certain musical chords and melodies produce definite responses within the human organism. He demonstrated that the right sequence of sounds, played musically on an instrument, could actually change behavior patterns and accelerate the healing process.The Healing Power of Music2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Fractal Universe:icontechgnotic:The Fractal Universe3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Is a photograph only a record, something created by a machine? Can photography ever truly be considered art? That question seems quaint and laughable these days, but if you do a little research you will find that once upon a time it was a raging debate. Thankfully a consensus has been reached that the agency of the photographer – his or her eye and critical mind – choosing the subject and manipulating the machine (the camera that is the art instrument) is what establishes photographs as potential works of art when created by an artist-photographer. Pretty basic common sense, huh? So why then is there now a debate as to whether FRACTAL ART is truly art – or just something produced by poking patterns into a computer? Isn't it just really random e-graffiti, a fibonacci button mash?
Here we go again… Hopefully it won’t take nearly a century again before fractal art is recog
IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ! - Stop Joseph KonyWhat would you do if you saw your brother or sister getting killed? What would you do if you were forced to kill your parents? What would you do if you had to escape, night after night, just to not get captured by people who will force you to kill others?IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ! - Stop Joseph Kony2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
For us this is absoltely impossible to imagine what it has to be like and every single one of us knows that it is wrong! Sadly, this does happen. There is a man out there forcing children to kill their loved ones. A man by the name of Joseph Kony. Whats even worse is that no one knows about him, he is completely invisible to the world. To this day he is still out there committing these unthinkable crimes, and no one is stopping him. We must stop Joseph Kony.
But what can we do to stop such an injustice? We can make his name known. We can spread the word. We can make the world see him. I may be just one voice, but with this one voice I can tell countless others, who in turn, can tell even more people. We are lucky enough
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....
KONY:2012 - Save the Children. Stop At Nothing.I'm sure a lot of people may have been hearing about this recently, and if not, then I'm surprised. I realize this video is long, but please ignore the length. This is very urgent, and very, very important. And I assure you, that if you don't want children to be abducted, mutilated, forced into sexual slavery, and forced to kill others, including their own parents, then this video is worth every single second of it's time. Please watch and spread the word. Joseph Kony must no longer be invisible to the world if he is to be stopped. All we have to do to save these kids is make Kony famous.KONY:2012 - Save the Children.

EDIT: There's been a lot of controversy about supporting this, but not the Inv. Children organization. I completely agree. While Inv. Children is not the best charity by far, though, this is still a good thing to make people aware of. And at the very least, being aware of things going on in the world is a step. You don't have to donate to Inv. Children - In fact, I encourage you not

New tools for artists: JWildfire V0.53 releaseJust released JWildfire V0.53.New tools for artists: JWildfire V0.53 release2 years 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 *
She LIGHTS up DA!!!Good evening all... I have just heard the sad news about Light's recent loss. In Light's honor, I will do a small feature here (as suggested by the great :iconfractalholic: Rick)...She LIGHTS up DA!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Light... I know I am not the first, or the last to say that you have truly made DA's fractal community come alive in your reign as Community Volunteer. Your focus was always on the fractal community here on DA and in celebrating the awesome talent with whom we share cyber space.
And, you, Light, are one of the brightest stars in the most wonderful fractal community on the web!!!
I bet there is more of your art in my favorites gallery than anyone else's. Just about every fractal piece you create is a masterpiece, an inspiration.
Your FlashMob Feature Idea is the best thing that ever happened here. I came to know so many artists that otherwise I might never have crossed paths with, and some of them silently toiled for years with little to no recognition.
As your Grannie passes over/through, I hope her journey

Major additions where made to the user interface regarding editing of numerical values.
Nearly anything can now be modified by just dragging the mouse and you can see the changes immediately exploring fractal flames was never such fun before
Additionaly, manual entered numerical values are now applied immediately not only after pressing RETURN.
Here is a short video demonstrating the new behaviour:
Complete list of changes:
- new input component for entering numerical values (which is derived from the default spinner component and allows to change values by dragging the mouse). All controls (where it made sense) where replaced by this new input component
- improved the "Bubbles" random flame generator
- collideoscope variation by Michael Faber
- some improvements to the random gradient generator
- new "Spherical" random flame generator
- layered_spiral variation by Will Evans
- possibility to specify the frame range before creating animation
Chaotica 0.48 for WindowsDownload for Windows 32/64bit: http://chaoticafractals.com/chaotica_0.48_win_noncommercial.zipChaotica 0.48 for Windows2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This release is mainly a bugfix release for the 0.47 beta, with many improvements to the user interface fixing issues such as the fractal not scaling when you changed resolution, imaging settings being spuriously reset and not saved properly etc. Hopefully it's a bit more friendly to use now It'll still crash if you try to restore state without having the original params loaded, that'll be fixed in the next release.
Another important change in this build is restored native support for bipolar, thanks to code Xyrus-02 provided from Apo7X15C beta 3. I'm hoping the small difference in handling the divide by zero and negative log etc will finally enable full compatibility - please test this and report if something looks wrong!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New YearHello fellow friends, watchers and everyone else who stumbles upon this...Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Today is the 4th Advent, in not even 6 (for some people 7) days is Christmas Eve. Because I won't be at home from Christmas until the 29th or even 30th of December I decided to put up a nice Feature of Christmas Art. Today I had my Mum, her boyfriend and his father over for dinner. We had fried trout filets, boiled potatoes and cucumber sald and a nice apple-vanilla-cinnamon junket as Dessert. I wanted to do something for them - they always support me so much and the father of my mum's boyfriend invites us for dinner so often and he just won't let me pay when we go to a restaurant. So yeah - this is the only chance I have to invite all of them for dinner...and it was so nice even though a lot of work - I guess I will do it again I think somewhere around next year - maybe in April before Easter Sunday or something like that...maybe earlier..I don't know yet ^^ I'm
The greatest resource on DA!I thought I'd share with you all my idea of the absolute best resource DA has to offer.The greatest resource on DA!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Although the tutorials are fantastic and can be found for almost any program an artist could use, it's not the best! Even though it's the reason I found DA!!
The gradient packs while so very nice and filled with all the gradients anyone could ever hope to use still isn't the best resource I've found on DA!
The parameter packs while filled with some of the best fractals for tweaking are fantastic and most new fractal artists would be lost without them, they aren't the best resource either!!
The plug-ins make life so very nice for those who do this on a daily basis and give us something different to explore and experiment with, but alas it's not the greatest resource either!!
The scripts also make tweaking and exploring new things very nice and give us a quick and easy way to the start of another tweaking expedition!! But again, it's not the best either!!!
The groups here at DA also make our artistic
