A few common Apo7X15C problems and their fixesI get an error about Apophysis7X.rand and/or Apophysis.undo when I start Apophysis
It's a Vista/7-issue which spawned after using Delphi XE2 as the main compiler (since 15C) You have multiple possibilities:
1. Right click the Apophysis shortcut or EXE-file and select "Properties". Go to the "Compatibility" tab and check "Run as administrator". Try again.
2. Copy your Apophysis folder to the desktop (or "My Documents") and try running it from that location.
3. Go to the control panel and disable UAC ("User account control")
A permanent fix is on the way.
I get a crap ton of access violations when I open Apophysis and/or the Editor window
My assumption is that there is an incompatibility in your settings. Reset them the following way:
1. Exit Apo, hold the Windows-Key and hit "R" on your keyboard. Enter "regedit" and hit return.
2. On the left side, browse to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software" and find the folder "Apophysis 7X".
3. Right click that folder and click "Delete".
Apophysis 7X 15C - Installer available nowI have made an installer for Apophysis 7X 15C available at xyrus-worx.orgApophysis 7X 15C - Installer available now3 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 The other language packs are outdated and for the vanilla version 7x15 only.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
Apophysis 7X 15C - Hotfixes #2!An updated version of Apophysis 7X15C is hitting the servers right now. The changes are:Apophysis 7X 15C - Hotfixes #2!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
+ Added possibility to specify a custom plugin path for the 32 bit version
+ Fixed bipolar variation (wrong constant used in preparation routine - M_2_PI is not 2 * PI. Thanks, Fred!)
+ Fixed "X"-button next to the search field
+ Fixed a memory leak in the renderer
+ Changed the 32 bit version to use 32 bit-floats (instead of double precision = 64 bit floats) which results in less memory use in the 32 bit version and higher image quality in the 64 bit version
+ Changed Chaotica integration so that 64 bit Chaotica is enforced if 64 bit Apophysis is running
I'm sorry for the update frequency but that's how it is in the first days after a new major release! People are actively tracking bugs and report the results to me. And I fix them and release hotfixes Once we - as a community - tracked down all the (not so hidden) bugs, the update frequency will drop to normal again

Apophysis 7X 15C - Hotfixes #3Two things changed:Apophysis 7X 15C - Hotfixes #33 years ago in Personal More Like This
+ Added color curves dialog
+ Fixed plugin recognition routines. Variations, which were already built-in were loaded anyway which lead to an "Access Violation" storm in the editor. Thanks again morphapoph for tracking the origin of the problem in such a masterful way!
The color curves dialog is very simple and straight forward. Works like the one in Photoshop. Or Chaotica. Or GIMP...and it's not perfect. It's a new feature and maybe a bit bugged. But we'll see how much better it gets over time

+ Fixed two strings regarding the Chaotica integration. They were always english. The language files have been adjusted accordingly.
+ Fixed the "dot"-bug with the waves2-, noise- and crop-variations (and possibly more) occuring when you use multithreaded rendering. The origin was a structural misconception with the opacity handling. It now works smooth & fine! No corrupted renders in my own tests. If you have some after this release, please report!

Thanks, fengda2870 for pointing it out.
I added two rather critical fixes to Apophysis 7x15c:
+ Fixed post_curl variation by doing the following on Zueuk's suggestion (more below)
+ Fixed a bug which created a spiral (why so ever) on the blur variation when using multithreading
post_curl_c3 got removed and post_curl was made a simple, 3D aware variation (Z-passthrough)
The functionality of the former, built-in post_curl was renamed to post_curl3D which essentially a post'ified curl3D where the latest post_curl behaves like the plugin (except for the Z-passthrough)
This fix was done as a result of the recent CDA.
The problem that the blur-variations as well as the crop-variations might malfunction if you use MT and render anything non-transparent P
Apophysis 7X 15C - Hotfixes #4!Oh mai, it seems that Apophysis 7X jumped on some kind of rapid-release scheduleApophysis 7X 15C - Hotfixes #4!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You kept reporting problems which I of course want to straighten out. This time, mostly about the newly introduced curves feature. I'm pushing updates on a daily basis - when possible - until they are kind of sorted out. At least the critical ones. Here is hotfix #4!
+ Changed color curves feature to use regular cubic béziér splines. They are weighted internally still but you can't change it from the GUI (which is not really necessary anyway...) ... it's kind of a hack, though, to bring you back the original coloring (not so vibrant and glary) but keep the possibility to adjust the color curves. I want to keep the weights - this is why I didn't remove them but it gives me a bit of time to fixing the maths!
+ Moved the curves window into the adjust window
+ Fixed the plugin loader code AGAIN to have the original list item coloring in the 32 bit version (white for basic built-in, blue for bu

MyFlame.at - going live!I have teased you with a secret project going on in the last days and now it is time to reveal what was cooking! I present you: MyFlame.at - a new, sleek yet rich web application to share your fractal flames with your friends and fellow fractal artists!MyFlame.at - going live!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It works like PasteBin - paste an Apophysis-fractal into the box and you will have a short link to the fractal in the top right corner to give your friends so they can grab the flame you shared. But not only that. It also features:
Author tagging - if you wish so, you can tag the fractal you shared with your Facebook-profile. This is optional but useful if you want to assist people in properly crediting you if they decide to tweak your work. If you paste fractal parameters which already have been shared using this application into the box, it will "recycle" the link being created before and also maintain the correct author tag.
Meta information - MyFlame.at automatically parses the fractal
Apophysis F.A.Q.We noticed there was a constant income of recurring questions about Apophysis on the group's homepage, so I collected the most common ones and Xyrus-02 kindly answered them for us .Apophysis F.A.Q.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Where do I get Apophysis? Is it expensive?
Apophysis is free, open-source software. That means, it does not cost you a cent. In addition, everyone is able to change the software using
the available source code. This is also why there are different
versions of Apophysis:
The "official" or "main" version of Apophysis. You can download it from Apophysis.org
Apophysis 2.08 3D
The original Apophysis 3D hack. You can download it from Sourceforge.net (where you can also get newer beta versions of Apophysis 2.x)

Positive Note, Everyone Deserves Exposure FeatureGood day my friends!!Positive Note, Everyone Deserves Exposure Feature3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I wanted to share a little something with you. Recently I have seen several people become disheartened over their work being rejected in groups. Well let me tell you a little story. It's happened to me as well. But here is the positive side of it all. Don't beat yourself up about it. Or the admins I had a piece that I was so proud of and I received the 'DECLINE' in my inbox. Like anyone else, I was so upset. It actually depressed the heck out of me. BUT what happened was someone took notice of that particular piece. They wanted to buy it. Not only was it sold but it is currently hanging in the Washington Design Center in DC. SO, what I am trying to say is no one can tell you your art is not good. If you feel in your heart you are happy with what you created then that is ALL that matters. Sure we all have our favorites and what not. But a true artist is not just created he believes and stands by his craft.
I hope you carry this little nugget with you.

Chaotica 0.48 for WindowsDownload for Windows 32/64bit: http://chaoticafractals.com/chaotica_0.48_win_noncommercial.zipChaotica 0.48 for Windows3 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!
* Changed copyright to Glare Technologies Ltd.

Apophysis 7x V15B is live!OMFG finally! What's new? Why 15B?Apophysis 7x V15B is live!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I promised it - here it is. A bugfix version of Apophysis 7X V15. It's supposed to fix some bugs and improve the Chaotica integration. It's actually not a full new version of Apophysis. V16 is the fancy one with the new, dark interface. This one is to improve the quality of the current version. Thus 15B. Here is the full list of changes:
Fixed DPI glitches in "Export UPR", "Gradient Browser" and "Message Log" windows.
Fixed a bug which made it impossible to render in slices due to "Out of Memory" errors.
Fixed a bug which caused wrong thumbnails after deleting a flame from the list to the left in the main window.
Updated Chaotica integration. Only versions since V0.45 of Chaotica are supported now. Directory structure is significant.
Added optional editor background preview. It is off by default. When on, the mini preview in the editor is replaced by the flame drawn on the background.
All buffer depths except 32 bit integer have been

Regarding CopyrightsIn light of all the problems people are having with other sites taking our fractals and using them as they see fit...i have put together some information...Regarding Copyrights3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The best advice in this post is: If you need legal counsel, then seek it. Don't get it from the internet or this post. Hire professionals who do it for a living, and for the love of god, don't defend yourself in court.
you all know i am not very technical so this is gonna be pretty rough at best but this is what i do if i find my art somewhere i don't want it.......
the first thing i do is contact the person displaying it and advise them all my images are copyright protected and please remove it....
then i wait a few days...
if the image is still there then i send the site an email with this form.....keeping things professional at this point is a must...and just sending an email asking them to remove the image will not work......here is the form i use
