Isolating Structures In MB3DHow to clean up your image background ~Isolating Structures In MB3D2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wow. I haven't done a journal in ages. I thought I would share a little trick for getting a nice clean background when you want to isolate a structure in Mandelbulb 3D. Why? Because sometimes the structures behind the main focus of your image or the main structure are either just small repeats of the main structure, or they are fragmented and in one way or another just not as interesting. Or the background might bury the foreground object in detail or draw attention away from what you really want the viewer to focus on. People strive for a lot of detail, and that's fine, and sometimes it works. But often I find that there's no main focus to frame your point of view. (Edit: I forgot to mention this is made using Mandelbulb 3D version 1.8.2 and I fixed a few typo's!)
Sometimes you're able to focus on the foreground structure through clever use of fog, lights and depth of field settings. Nothing wrong with that either, so this is just another
Stylish Pixels: the Versatility of Fractal ArtFractals have wide application in the modern world, and can be used for purposes as simple as basic screensavers or as complicated as detailed environment generation in games and movies. While fractals can be used as tools, they also can be used to create beautiful, abstract, and awe-inspiring artwork in a virtually limitless number of ways. This article will attempt to do a quick summary of fractal artwork, from basic applications of fractals in artwork, to a look at the community itself.Stylish Pixels: the Versatility of Fractal Art1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Stylish Pixels: the Versatility of Fractal Art
There are three "categories" that I consider encapsulate fractal art as a whole:
- Fractals as "objects" that can be "photographed."
- Fractals as "brushes" that paint and shape various sections of the fractal.
- Fractals as "paint."

This is an encouragement to use POLYFOLD_SYM!
This transform adds a polygonal symmetry to a fractal, of specified order (order should be an integer number normally. Even orders are 100% continue while odd ones have a discontinuity plane... )
Normal PolyFolding did not allowed to choose a shift without breaking continuity instead this allows to do so! Try it.

There are many different kinds of fractal generating software out there, just waiting for an artist to create beautiful fractal images.
Many of them are free and some of them even have creators who are members here at Deviant Art!.
There are groups available that are devoted to specific programs....and there are groups that solicit your art no matter which
software you choose to use.

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

A new 'Toy' for M3D!!Hi guys!A new 'Toy' for M3D!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First off; let me wish you all a - slightly belated! - Happy New Year!
Now, to the point; I recently discovered - via Kronpano's :iconkronpano: excellent piece 'Sierp Hilbert Construction Site': http://fav.me/d72bcaa that it's possible to create interactive 360 degree images of M3D - and doubtless also Mandelbulber and Frag - pieces.
The process uses a facility provided by 'fieldofview.com', which is accessible through a Flickr account. I personally have never been a great one for making vids of my M3D creations, so finding this feature was like manna from heaven for me!
Basically, you'll have to have, or open a Flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/ to upload your images to. As most of you will be aware, M3D has a 360 degree view option within the Navigator; use this to create your panoramic 'base' piece.
To work best, the 'horizon' should be positioned in the exact centre of your image. This will avoid any unwanted distortion. If you are using a background image

What is a Fractal?
A Fractal is a digital artwork that is based on parametres and formulas that are based on mathematics(Geometry). The name Fractal comes from the latin words fractus (fractured, refracted) or frangere (to break into pieces).
The one who coined the term of Fractal was Benoît Mandelbrot. He was a Mathematician born on 20th of November 1924 in Warsaw and died on 14th of October 2010 in Cambridge/US. He contributed a lot to the thematic of financial mathematics, theoretical physics and chaos science. But the highest popularity he gained with being the father of Fractals.

My name is Geoffroy, I'm 41, from France, studied Arts at school, had many different jobs, and I'm actually a stage sound ingeneer.
What is the first thing that makes you attracted to Fractal Art?
That's a big question !
Since I can remember, I've always been a science-fiction addict, comics, movies, litterature, TV series.....everything. I was fascinated by those psychedelic environments and colors. Then we got an Amstrad cpc464 (yes the one with the tape recorder ), and I found in a coding book some examples on how to create a computer generated image.
It was basically geometric patterns and some kind of rose-window pictures.

As this is a study group...thought of sharing here some tips, Luca :icondark-beam: shared regarding the order of formulae using in MB3D.....some of you may be aware about it.
The order of formulae using in MB3D play an important role in shaping the fractal image.
The first formula plays a vital role...for example in a set of formulae " repeat from here" starts from second formula we can say that the 1st formula is a pre-transform...and the remaining formula will repeat in order, according to the no. of iterations..
For eg:-if we take our
