Mandelbulber v2.0 Alpha Now Available!Hi folks!Mandelbulber v2.0 Alpha Now Available!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Although our group is called 'mandelbulb3d', we also include the 3D fractal programs 'Fragmentarium' and of course 'Mandelbulber'. Well, some exciting news concerning Mandelbulber has recently come to our attention; the program's creator Krzysztof Marczak
:iconKrzysztofMarczak: also known as 'Buddhi', has just released the latest test version of this excellent software. Version 2.0 Alpha now has a single window GUI, as opposed to the multi-part interface of previous versions, and this new version seems to operate in quite a similar manner to Mandelbulb 3D!
Although I personally haven't yet had time to have a good play with the software, I will definitely be spending some serious time with it over the coming weeks, until the 'official' release of the final version of Mandelbulber 2.0.
I actually began my 3D fractal explorations using Mandelbulber v0.80 way back in 2010, and loved its lighting and final render quality. But, subsequent releases demanded
I NEED HELPERSedit. Added more details in the explanationI NEED HELPERS8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Be patient and read everything. Tell me if sthg remains unclear as soon as you can.
I am looking for a set of new sample params that will be included with the next Mb3d x2, that will be a formula update + a param update.
You CAN CONTRIBUTE AND YOUR NICK will be in the param name.
Resulting images must be elegant, incisive and clean, with a stepwidth of 0.5 to min 0.3! I will be very exigent with those requirements! Sample images are examples of elegance in my eyes.
no decombines. (ALTERNATE MODE each formula can have any number of iterations 1 to 20, leave maxiter to 60 as it's fast to render). And no weird looking images. Remember the elegance rule, fractals are not random
Use neutral colors. That means; not full hue ones, prefer those more grey-ish, in general. You always can use coloured lights (just not use all the colors in the spectrum at once if possible) - and you can use dynamic fog also AND any other option in postpr

- Option to perform automatic refresh of the Navigator-window when changing formulas-parameters in the Formula-window
- The Formula-Window is resizable now
- Exchanging of formulas in the Formula-window now works in two directions
- Started to increase the number of formulas from 6 to 8. (!!!) Many changes are already done, but not all. Unfortunately most required changes are only detected by crashing the program.
It was necessary to create new revisions for all file-formats involved, currently only saving in the *m3p-format is supported.

Mandelbulb 3D Tutorial 5: Tips and TricksFrom time to time, I still manage to stumble across new 'tricks' in MB3D. I'm sure some of the following tips are known to others, but for those that haven't discovered them, I hope they will help in the future. Some of these were discovered accidentally, others were found through desperation while trying to solve problems.Mandelbulb 3D Tutorial 5: Tips and Tricks8 months ago in Personal More Like This
The first one is very simple and just a little bit of a time saver.
Loading Diff maps ~
This was discovered by accident. It may be well know for all I know, but I just recently discovered it. In the light panel under the Global light tab, there is a box you select to load a diffuse map (Diff map). This is used to color your image in different ways, such as making it look like the structures surface is textured. Normally you simply select the box (Use a map for the diffuse color) and the number one map in your folder loads. If you want to change a map, you just scroll with the up\down arrows to a different image number or input a number if you know which map n

Further to my last journal entry about the release of the alpha version of Mandelbulber;
I'm happy to announce that the finished version - v2.02 - of this superb 3D Fractal renderer is now available for free download!

Mandelbulbers' creator Krzysztof Marczak, has the following to say about its features:
"This is first release of Mandelbulber v2. The program was rewritten from scratch to have a nicer Qt based user interface. I hope you like it.
What is new compared with the old Mandelbulber?
- user interface is based on Qt 5 environment (before was GTK2+)
- instead of separate windows, there is big main window with all functions grouped in moveable and detachable docks (View/Save window state stores favorite window configuration)
- most edit fields have sliders to set value by mouse. Edit fields where range of value is very high, have a slider with logarithmic scale.
- new camera-target functionality and

The software's code has been made available to the public. What does this mean to us in the fractal community? It means that we too can create dreamlike, surreal or outright hallucinogenic images.

Mandelbulb3D Apollo dIFS TutorialWell, I've seen you really enjoyed mine and most of you asked me for tutorial! Alright, here it comes. Be sure you do only amazing pieces with this!! ..Mandelbulb3D Apollo dIFS Tutorial4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I hope you opened Mandelbulb3D... Now Let's start.. But it's not easy as it seems to be!
1. Click Fo.2 (2nd Slot) in Formulas window, and insert here Apollo2DIFS - It's located in last (3rd) dIFS collumn! (Under amazingIFS) And now input these values (These are just optional. Different formula can get affected by different rotation, PolyFold, etc.) and change Max. iterations from 60 to 10
Add X1: 0 (keep unchanged)
Add X2: 0 (keep unchanged)
Mul Z: 0.65 - 0.85
RotationX: -1.5 -1.9
RotationY: 5.9 6.4
RotationZ: 0 (keep unchanged)
Polyfold Order: 12-44 (determines number of petals of your future flower, this value range is recommended)
Global XY-Scale: 0,05 - 0.1
Final add X: 15 - 20
Now It's not easy to choose from formulas which decorates flower, or which makes these wonderful petals...
What Happens if.Formula 1: Choose something to manipulate Formula twoWhat Happens if.2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Formula 2: Choose something solid (I like Asurf)
Formula 3: Conditional Count switch and point it to formula four
Formula 4: Choose a solid ( I like OctahedronIFS any IFS will do)
Formula 5: Conditional Count switch and point it to formula six
Formula 6: A copy of formula four (or any other IFS)
Now...I tweaked the Asurf until I found a structure that I liked, not to complex and with a large surface area for texture.
Next...Tweak formula 3 and formula 4 until you find a nice texture for your Asurf...do the same for formula 5 and 6. be careful not to change the formula nr in the conditional count switch..or else!
The smaller the iterationcount for the Asurf the greater the number of Octahedrons...if the Asurf is too 'dense' the Octahedrons texture will not appear. If the Asurf is to complex you get no textures or it looks 'gritty'
Edit...Try turning the Conditional Countswitch Off (0 iterations) to see the effect they have.

Here is a simple procedure on how to obtain these caracteristic “kleinian” shapes or however they are named with a simple heightmap. This mini tutorial can be done with any other dIFS shapes tough, like SphereIFS, etc.
I've used for this example a very simple grayscale map, filled with neutral grey (RGB 192)
If you don't want to make it or can't, you can download it here: http://sta.sh/0fu5qld142i
Don't forget to add the map to the working folder you have for Mandelbulb 3D!
I've lowered the max. Iterations to 25 in the formula window to speed things a bit up but you can change it later if you prefer to do so.
Put in the first slot HeightMapIFS and type 199 in the nr field:
Add amazingIFS to the second slot.Just set all rotation X, Y and Z from default 5 to 0, and change Fold X, Y and Z values to 1.

Macro Photography - Detail not Visible to the EyeMacro Photography - Show the Detail not Visible to the EyeMacro Photography - Detail not Visible to the Eye8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Approaching macro photography for the first time can be full of ugliness especially if your first attempts fail badly. Many beginners discover the Depth of Field (DoF) is very small, images are out of focus because the focus is critical in macro photography with the small DoF, Camera shake and subject movement (due to using longer shutter speeds to allow for small apertures and/or not using a sturdy tripod), increased noise (if you use a higher ISO to compensate for the small apertures needed), or badly composed photos. And this can get frustrating.
(the following was already covered in my first article Welcome to the
World of Macro but here is a reminder)
Macro Photography requires special equipment which can get expensive, but so what we photographers like to spend money on equipment. Without some form of macro equipment you will not be able to
